Penn Fathom 20LW easy
One reel, to fish for all catfish? I would chose an abu6500c3, the newer ones with the carbon matrix drag...I have caught 40-lb flatheads on this reel with ease..Also smaller channel cats..I can cast this reel a mile, and rarely get a birds nest.
What would your one reel to fish with be?my Camo ABU 6500 C3 ... best looking & functioning set up ever
My first was a 6500 followed by a 5000,it was followed by a 4500 which I rigged up last nite for slip floating flatheads this weekend.I love them all but I'd have to say the 6500 is a beast that'll handle anything thrown at it but for my fishing,blues and flatheads to 40ish,the 5000 is about perfect with the 4500 right on its heels.It is on the list of reel that I like to own one day. Good choice
