    i am going to start getting into some river fishing and wanted to know if the spinning reel is tough enough to catch some cats. thought i would ask this here but are the rods they make good too. i would be bank fishing for what ever will came by and take some cut bait. if you have any other recommendations for what i should get let me know, but im an a budget.

    I own a king cat spinning reel have not landed anything over 3 pounds on it yet. It cast nice though. I been wondering the same thing about the reel. Will it hold up if i hook into a blue over 20#. Time will tell and i'll be the first to rant or rave over the reel.

    I've got a couple of the King Cat rods, they work pretty good. Haven't caught anything over 10# on them, but I like them so far. I've gotten heavier rods since, but I still use them in the river once in a while. For $19.95 they're worth it.
