    Just got an 8" Eagle Claw Catclaw M/H to go with my new Penn 209 Has anyone had any experience with this rod? I had several Eagle Claws a few years back and they all worked great, just wondering if anyone else has an opinion on them. Thanks.

    I've got the same rod and I like it very much. Biggest flathead I've caught with it was 50lb, the rod did a fine job.

    I've got two 12 footers with abu 7000 and a tidewater30L and they have worked great for the past 6 years.

    Got to try the rod out this weekend and I have to say I like it alot. Did not know the tip glows in the dark. Great feature. My next trip to exas next month I plan on buying a couple more at Academy. (and probably a few more Penn 209's to go on them)
