    After deciding to use my King Kat pros for channels exclusively under advice of the coolest fishing site on the web I went and bought some new rods. I purchased 2 Quantum BigCats one med/heavy and one heavy action. I also purchased 2 Abu reels a 6500 tccf and a 7000b. I want to use these as my primary setups for Muskingum and Ohio river flatheads. I hope these work out for my sake cause at this point my girlfriend is ready to strangle me and I'm going to be eating ramen noodles for a couple weeks to offset the cost lol :p

    Thats about what I use. However I will be trying my King Kat Pro's for Flats to see how they handle them.

    You made a good choice on those bigcat rods....Brayn I would trust the sturdy stik before those kingkats on flats.

    Ramen noodles are not bad. Just add a few spices, left over meat cut up is chucks, etc. :) By the way, you might as well get her broke now to the idea of a guy has to have new tackle occasionally or we go nuts. :)

    Dave R, Like Flathunter Said, The Big Cats Are An Excellent Choice. I Also Just Got Me A Couple Of The M/h Casting And One Heavy Casting. Good Looking Rods, Can't Wait To Load Em' Up With Some Hawgs!

    Thanks guys for steering me toward these rods. I did a side by side comparison last night with my Rhinos and I certainly wish I would have bought the BigCats sooner. Oh well chalk it up as another learning experience.

    The best thing about your new rods and reels, they dont complain or nag.

    Lmao, what's ironic is that she's usually the first one to the table when I fry up some catfish.
