    i have one and i think it works well...very stout rod...kinda heavy but its not a bass pole so that shouldnt matter to much...it doesnt to me...anyways for the price i was very satisfied...it should have no trouble draggin in a monster flathead or blue...good luck!

    I just put a abu 6500 c3 on it with 40lb ande green line with a 2oz eggsinker,2/0 barrel swivel and 18"of 80lb test big game with a 9/0 khale hook. The 40lb line was a bit much for the 6500 but its on there .Im goin to put my biggest bait on this rod combo and hope for a big one.:tounge_out:

    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.

    Gregory, where did you buy yours at. I got mine at BPS but they only have like 2 sizes. I was looking at the surf rod myself.

    I got mine here ( http://www.castawaylakes.com/DaiwaRods.html ). I bought two of the 12ft casting rods. They work great for me, teamed with Garcia 7000 reels. I use them from the bank and pier, at the Ohio River. They will sure muscle in a Flathead catfish.:big_smile:

    These rods are ok I guess but a little heavy and stiff for my liking.
