    Ok, So I'll admit it, I'm a Newbie! I've been using some Wal-Mart Combos for the past 2 years. Berkley Fusions to be exact. I've decided, I'm done fishing for small fish, and wanted to upgrade my equipment. Since I'm on a budget, I was trying to find a decent combo. I ordered 2 BPS 10' Cat Busters last night. I tried finding some reviews on here, but nothing. So I haven't heard any bad things about them as of yet, which is the only reason i bought them. Does anybody have any expierence with them? Did I make a mistake? PLEASE somebody ease my mind, lol. :crazy:

    Well just to give everybody a little update and review on the Catbuster from Bass Pro Shop. I landed 2 decent fish this past weekend and the poles handled awesome! I landed 21.9 and 18.3 flats with 0 problems. A very wise purchase for the money! Hope this helps anyone looking for a new combo rod/reel who's on a budget.
