    here in a couple of weeks i plan on buying the channel cat rod from catfish safari, im curious if anybody else uses this rod and if so what reel do you use with it. i have an abu garcia ambassadeur 6601 would this be a good reel with it?


    thanks levi

    The Abu 6000-class reels match well to the channel cat rods. You'll like the combination, I'm sure.

    I have 2 of the Channel Rods and love them. I have a Abu 6500 Black Cat on one and the other has a standard 6500 on it. The rods have a nice action on them. I landed a 23lb channel with mine a few months back so don't worry about them being able to land bigger fish they can handle it.
