I think I need to upgrade my big game rod, I thinks its to heavy and it dont have enough action so I can feel the bites. are there any affordable replacements out there?

All I use are ugly sticks and bass pro shops power plus a good rod for the money. Have been using them for several years.

CJ, that rod's okay. Maybe your just not getting any bites. LOL. The fish are probably just pecking at your bait, and no matter what rod you have the results would be the same. Wait another month to a month and a half, when they really get hitting, and make your decision then.

CJ i think that rod is plenty sensitive... its not that stout... only thing i think that is more sensitive its the regular Ugly stick classic..i don't think they are slamming the bait yet.. i haven't caught any catfish yet but the few i have seen caught where just touching the bait... the last guy didn't even know he had something on there until he was reeling it up to check his bait and felt a bit of weight...
