There is a tackle shop that I frequent and they have an Abu Garcia 7000i Rod/Reel combo with like a 7ft. MH rod that is also an Abu Garcia. I am sure the rod is really a "Made in China" special but it keeps catching my eye. It looks like a REALLY tuff setup. The price tag on it now is $125.00 for the whole shabang. I looked at wally world lastnight and that same reel is for $104.00 I believe. What do you think? Should I buy the combo? What are your opinions of the reel? What would a reel that size be used for? If I get it I plan on catfishing with it. Would that be overkill? Just looking for some info. If I did get it what would you spool it with as far as lb. test, etc. I dont have any experience with bait casters for catfishing but I do like the idea of it. I use a 7yr. old spincast Tiger combo 6'6" as one setup and the other is a new Zebco 808 on a Berkly Big Game 6'6" rod. Should I get it or will I regret it? $125 for that combo seems very reasonable if I get just the reel for $104. Help me plz.
