I have the medium and medium heavy both in the casting. They are both very fun for channel cats. I got them over a year ago so I've had some time with them. They are paired with Abu's 5501's I believe. I could he wrong on the reel I haven't looked at them very close and I don't know Abu's very well. Anyhow the rods are very sensitive and will bring in that 10-15lber no problem with plenty of play for the 2-3 lber. It may catch a 20-25 on the medium heavy I've just never caught a fish that big so I can't vouch.

I bought a 7' that will handle 50ld test I got it for $20 on sale a while ago. It casts well with 70ld braid on a big old abu reel I had I really did not get to fish with yet. My oldest son love open face he took and said I will try it out for you. It was too hot at the time for me to go out anyway. He came back fried and blisters too said it work great but could not find any big ones. He told me they ran out of cold water and they ate the ice too.
