    There are many good combinations of reels, rods and line. Hard to give just one answer but a multitude of personal opinions will be easy to come by. To me the best combination is one that gets the job done for the size of fish you seek. The size of trophy cat is dependent on the waters you fish. I suggest you figure the size of cat you are after and take all the good info I am sure you will be replied with on this post and make your decisions from there. Good luck to ya and good fishing. Hope you catch a trophy... WELCOME TO THE BOC Jeff.
