If that's really what you want I would suggest finding something with a little more glass in it. My dad uses an old fiberglass fenwick rod from the '70s. You can bend that thing in half and not hurt it.

If you look at most deep sea downrigger rods, they're all fiberglass and carbon. You just can't put a parabolic bend on a graphite rod without busting it.
