    Folks, Catfish Connection is expecting the new Abu Garcia 'Green Cat' reels within the next 4 to 5 weeks. I assume they will also be a limited edition reel like the 'Blue Cat' was. I hope the price of the reel will be in line with what the 'Blue Cats' sold for, and I hope they are a 6500 series reel. I'm planning on getting at least 4 of them, even if I have to sell a guitar to do so! :wink:

    That sounds like a good one too, but I'm hopin' that the 'Green Cat' will be $89 like the 'Blue Cats' were. Wish I had bought 4 'Blue Cats' instead of 2. They are MIGHTY FINE reels!!!

    I have also wondewred this, the black cat, and the blue cat were suppose to be catfish connection exclusive reels.

    But I have seen both for sale by other tackle dealers, for about 10 bucks more.

    Are they getting them from catfish connection, then just jacking up the price?

    I was in Pana Bait (Catfish Connection) two days ago asking about the new green and black ones. He told me that he had received a bill so it won't be long now. He also told me that pricing would be about $5 higher than last years. The green one will be exactly like last years blue one (except for the obvious defference in color) and anyone who owns one of those knows they are out freakin' standing reels!!
