    I see that Catfish Connection is carrying these now. They don't have a pic yet of the new rods and they're listing the old rod specs in the description of the new rod. They come in MH and H action in casting and spinning rods. They are priced at,I believe, $53.95. Any of you have anymore info on these I'd appreciate it. Thanks! BWC1975

    I would like to know the action. I really like what Bass Pro did this year w/ the Cat Max rods, by softening the tips. If the Big Cats are the same (softer tip) I'd prob go back to using them.

    I called Catfish Connection and asked about the new "Big Cat". I talked to a guy named John, and he said they were pretty much the same as the last rod. The only difference he mentioned was the blanks were new and were a little stiffer than the last ones. If no one gets one soon and reports on them, I guess I'll be the dumb guinea pig and get a couple to try out!

    I didn't think they would make them stiffer. THe old ones are stiff enough.

    Slimcat, I think he meant they were stiffer toward the handle and have more sensitive tips kinda like the new 7'-9" Catmaxx, maybe? I'll give him a call back and ask more about them. Seems odd to me that Quantum has nothing about these rods on their website.

    Brandon: Quantum has up-graded these rods. Action similiar to the 1999-2000 models. You will be happy with these rods.

    Hello Harold, thanks for the info and great to see you make your first post here on the BOC! I look forward to hearing more from you in the future. I believe you have to make 10 legitimate posts before you can see pictures that members post and maybe some other things. So keep the posts and info a coming!
