    Anyone ever seen or used one of these from bass pro?I was looking through the catalog today and seen in there a cat maxx reel.You can even get it with a combo with the reel and the cat maxx rods.Its on page 81 of the 2006 master catalog.

    Spend the extra money for an ABU. You wont regret it.
    A friend has a Catmaxx and I'm most certain it is the first and last he'll own.
    There is no comparison between an ABU 6500 and that reel other then the look.

    I have just recently purchased 2 cat max spinning reels from bass pro larger ones the 70 model and have used them once last wed. I was drift fishing at desoto bend its an oxbow lake off the missouri river about 800 acers. they worked well on the two fish I boated but were only between 3# and 4# pounds each. so im not sure how good they will work on the lagger fish yet.I have seen the cat max casting reels at bass pro (we have a brand new one here in Council Bluffs Ia.)and I wasent impressed with them I think I would stay with the ABU 6500.Bigcatman0816
