    It depends on the make model of rod.

    All medium actions are not equal.

    For instance a medium action ugly stik tger rod will handle any catfish in the U.S.

    A medium action in another model may not have the back bone..

    Also depends on the water, if fishing in a snag free area where you dont have to horse the fish in, and you can tire him out, or not in alot of current.

    Got the medium/heavy action tiger ugly...waiting for my safari rods....then waiting for the fish to bite. That seems to be the challenge for me now. Love my catfish ugly too.
    good luck
