    I know a lot of the guys on this site have a ton of poles(Mellon,Mellon,and Mellon) :p I was just wondering whats everyones favorite rod and reel. My favorite has to be my Shimano spinning reel on my 11 foot predator rod. It is prolly the cheapest of all my set ups but when i take it fishing it doesnt matter how many people are with me that rod will be the first one to get hit and the drag will start singing

    Abu 5500. baitcast . At least I think thats what it is. LOL. All the info has wore off. I've had it bout 15 or more years. Only had to replace a couple parts on in one time. Aint no telling how many fish I brought in on it and a few other things. Next is my 6500C3. My all time favorite which is not the best reel for catfishing but one I grew up on is the Zebco 33.
    Gets to squeaking when reeling, dip it in the water, its good to go for a couple more fish. LOL. The older ones seem to hold up much better than the newer ones.

    Pflueger pflueger pflueger I am now changing my rods to challenger,s. Great product, If one breaks turn it in for a new one. Don't have to send it in just take it where you bought it and trade, forever.

    My favorite reel is my Penn320 LD on a 8' Seeker American series rod.
    My other is a Tica Caiman ca205 on 8'6" ugly stick.
    Also a couple of master reels on uglysticks, that have served me well!
