    Has anyone used the Cabela's King Kat II rod and reel combo, is it worth it to buy?

    I have 5 of the reels, and would highly recomend them they work great. Very good reel for the money.

    I looked at them at the Cabelas closest to me,,, seemed OK..not great..
    I don't really know about the rods, don't remember the weight or action rating,,, but, I'm sure I'd rather have a Garcia 6500 than the reel they have on it...a 7000 better yet!!
    If you're price conscious,,, as, I am,, buy a bit more than you think you can afford, and you'll not have to buy so much!!!:wink:

    i have 4 of the king kat poles and they held up fine, the 7 ft. med heavy action is very strong, the reels are O.K. but i took mine off and replaced them with shimano 4500 baitrunners, hard to beat the poles for the money
