I have been using Fig Rig "Carbon Classic" model 400 when drifting for catfish on the Arkansas River very successfully. The rod is designed to handle up to 80 pound test and is so incredibly sensitive that I now use Fig Rig rods exclusively on my boat in tournaments and for guided clients. The rods are mated with Abu Garcia Ambassador 6000, 6500 and 7000. These rods are great. If anyone is interested in looking at the Fig Rig website, PM me for the URL or do a search.
