That 7000 is what I want to put on it a little later when I can . That should handle any cat in N.C. (Thanks)

I have one Model ba601mrs. Its my carp rod and I love it. The price wasnt to bad either, $24.99 . I have an Okuma Epixor EB30 baitrunner on it with 20 pound fireline. Its a 6 foot medium action so it says. Its more like a broom handle.
