    I was just at the local Wally World and saw the rod you are talking about. What the recommended sizes for that combo? Looks to me for maybe smaller cats, but I don't use baitcaster for anything other than spoonbill now, like Diawa Sealine hsd 40 and hsd 50, so I don't have a lot of knowledge of the capabilities of the smaller ones. Thanks

    Good price on the combo but be-ware. We purchased 2 of those bcx's about a year or two ago at full price. They will handle the smaller cats ok but we have noticed problems with the bait clickers working correctly on them at times. They are not made as well as some of the other abu's but you did good on the price. Good luck and hope to see some pics.

    Sorry, I meant to say we had problems with the bait clickers not working. Not engaging at times and other times had problems getting the clicker turned off.

    Those bcx abu's are the bottom of the line for the abu's I believe. Look in bass pro, they are the cheapest ones they list. the price goes up quite a bit after that. There not bad reels just cheaper made.
