Is anyone familiar with Mitchell Spidercast Rods?

Is anyone familiar with Mitchell Spidercast Rods?

I bought this rod back in the 90's.  Although it's cool looking.   I've never got to use it. :(
It was always too big to bring in the cars.  :(  Here is all the information off the rod.

Mitchell Spidercast
Spectra Composite
Super Line Series
6.5 Med Hvy
Lure Wt: 1/4 - 1 1/4 OZ
Line Wt: Mono 12-25lb
Superline 10/50lb
Model# SC66MHT

Do they still sell these?  If so, where?  Did these ever come in 2-piece models?

Thx, :)

Don't know much about them but i do remember them. They were made and marketed as a rod & reel for spiderwire.

Not made anymore.

Definitely an oldie from about 8-10 years ago.

They were made, as Joe said, to target Spiderwire users. I think the biggest known characteristic was that they were pretty flexible and could handle the shock of hard hooksets when using spiderwire.
