What Kind Of Rod Do You Guys Like And What Size And Length.
Think Of Getting So New Ones This Year
It depends, I fish from a boat a lot so I have shorter ones, but I do have some 10-12' rods to take to the dam. I have some CatMax and Penn rods.
Hey Adam I already told you I use the Shakespear Sturdy Stick. 6"6" and 7' ones. :smile2: Plenty of backbone and the tip is just soft enough to see the bites.
Adam I have had real good luck with Quantum Big Cat Rods in m/h.They are 7 1/2 ft long. I use them with 7000c3 reels.:0a26: :0a18:
I use 7' M/H rods from a boat or shore. They are:
1. Penn Roddy Gatortails (Same blank and eyes as the Uglystick Tiger)
2. Uglystick Tigers (yellow not white)
3. Custom Made M/H 7' "Gator Custom Rod"(my Favorite)
I use the CATMAX from Bass Pro, they are on sale now 24.95 8' mh,, I really like the Surge rods in Catfish connection, I have 4 mh have good back bone and very sensitive tips.
mostly 7 footers Shakespeare ugly stick and ugly stick tigers (yellow). I have more but, those are my favorites
I Like Jim Moyer "The Boss", Ugly Stik Tiger , And I'm Hearing Alot Of Good Info. But Don't Own A Surge Catfish Rod Yet.
ugly stick, you can not go wrong and the price is right. i like a 7' H to MH.
I have two combos that I really like for my type of fishing. An Okuma BX-65 FIn Chaser and an Okuma Avenger. They are both great for my fishing, but I don't usually fish for the monsters in the Rivers.
Try the new post on Surage Rods ,lots of good feedback on them. I havent seen one yet but I think a friend of mine has a couple of them.I think a guy named Adam from Coulmbia , Mo. makes them ar a custom made one.

I use the 7ft ugly stix,but I also like the Penn slammers for the $$$.Heavy tips on the slammers for good for big Santte cats.
I use the 7' Shakespeare Ugly Stik Tiger rods and have no complaints at all.
I really like the Ugly Sticks. I use the 7' ones with Abu Garcia reels.
I have 5 ugly stick rods. four rods are 7 feet, one rod is 6 feet. I love them! most rods are M/H action...
I use a 7' and 8' MH big game rods.
i will hopefully be getting a 8ft heavy action uglystick bigwater, i hear its an excelent rod for going after trophies
I don't know for sure but are they 2-piece rdos? I tend to shy away from them cause they are not trustworthy to me.
I use uglystick big water 2 piece rods they will handle any cat in the us . I have caught many Flatheads in the 50s with them.
I have had a few break on me, was just stating an oppinion, LOL!!!
