Hi guys, 

I have a status 24kg bent butt rod, i am pretty sure the abyss stand up butts fit the status as well.
Has anyone done this and have 2 butts for the one rod, so they can have the best of both depending on what theyre doing etc?

If so, Where can i get the straight stand up butt? My local shop wanted $279 for a Kilwell butt.. May as well buy another rod at that price..

cheers

Smartmarine have a gold coloured straight one that fits, and won't send you broke either. I have one on my PE5-8 status. To be honest it's not a very comfortable butt as it's got a very narrow sharp end on it, but I use a gimbal so it does the job fine.

Pretty sure that I have a pair of never unwrapped straight butts that I have never used. From Penn game rods. If they are what you need we can work out a deal. They are black
