Before I catch flak about how I can’t afford a nice rod/reel, because I’ve seen that type of bashing here before, my primary setup is a Basspro CatMaxx rod with an Abu 7000 iC3, not a cheap combo. Now we have that out of the way, this video is intriguing. I’m in the market for a secondary rod/reel to replace my ugly stick catfish rod and Walmart spinning reel. I was thinking of getting a 7’6 MH Rippin’ Lips Super Cat and a reel to accompany it. The KastKing 60 looks like a pretty good reel for the money. I only carry 2 rods because in Ohio, that’s all you’re allowed to use at one time. The average fish we catch around here is 3-10lb channels and 6-15lb flatheads with the occasional 30-40lb flatty. I’m not interested in dropping another $250 on a catfish rod. Any thoughts? Fire away boys.
