    I have one of the Ugly cat M\H rods with an Abu 6000 on it. I like it I have caught several 20s on it with no problem. But it will be a matter of opinion. You may go get one and not like it or find it not suitable for your needs. I fish in lakes so if you river fish you may not like it. I guess its a lot of trial and error.

    The Jeff Arrington Signature Series by Skipper Rods is my favorite.

    Throughout the fishing year I use about 12 different setups and each one has a different rod just use what feels best to you.

    They will all catch fish so just think about what size and weight of the fish you wish to target with your new rod and reel set up.

    I'd recomend Catfish Safari Rods. I've recently caught my PB Blue Cat in Current. My new Safari Rod did great. My father-in-law fowl hooked about a 65 lb. Spoonbill with the Safari Rod. This rod had no problem bringing him in. Just remember a cheaper rod may work for now...maybe forever...you get what you pay for. I purchased a couple of cheaper rods last year and I wish I hadn't. Hope this helps.

    My PB Blue was a 42 lbs. That might help.
