    Good to see more catfishing tackle come out and thanks for the heads up.
    No offense, but for $70 I would rather have a ugly stick and a used abu or penn.. That setup has been tried/tested/and recommended by a couple hundred BOC members and is good for any species of catfish in most any water....

    If you happen to get one of these combo's, please be sure and write a review with your thoughts on it ....

    well some of us are on a budget n cant afford over 40 to 80 bux a rod n reel combo so Ty for heads up on those..eaven your cheaper combos will catch as much fish as the high priced rigs if u take care of them..n spool them up with descent line n set drag right..

    I bought one for myself and for my dad, $60 for rod and reel at Bass Pro. The action of them is great, I haven't got to use mine yet though, I'll let you know what I think.

    It all depends on the size of your realm.
