    Hey guys, I'm new on here and I have a question for you. What kinds of rods and reels are you using? Right now I have an Ambassadeur 6000 on a Berkley Big Game rod, and a Shimano Corsair that I put on a Tiger Spincast catfish rod. Both loaded with 15 lb mono. The Corsairs casting distance is just awesome considering the rod's only a 6 footer. The Amb. does almost as well, but makes an awful screaming sound when it's cast. Any ideas why? I've had it apart and giving a good cleaning and lube, but still noisy. Thinking of retiring it and finding another used Corsair. Your thoughts??? John
