    How big are the cats you're targeting and what kind of rod is it ? The 6000 is a good reel but if you're targeting big catfish you might want to look at a 6500 c3 or a 7000c3, I have a 6000 and use it alot and I like it but if I was targeting big catfish I would step it up a notch or two but this is only my opinion and I hope it helps.

    Persoannly I think the 6000 is a good choice, you can land a mighty big fish on a 6000.

    I have 7 or 8 of them so you know I must think that they are a good reel. Would have no problem with a big fish.

    With one or two exceptions, the 6000 should handle any freshwater fish swimming in the North American continent. The questions is... could you handle a really big catfish? LOL

    I have a 6000, some 6500s, and a 7000. I had rather use the 6000 then any of the others. I think the 6000 is a great reel.
