    Anyone seen this reel yet. It is a 6500BR Custom cat. Nice reel if you like the color, or just add to your collection.

    Made in SWEDEN. These reels are a Catfish Connection limited edition exclusive in their yearly series color change for their catfish reels. I bought two 'Blue Cats' last year and two 'Green Cats' this year. If the 'Bronze Cats' don't sellout before next year's end, I will buy a pair of them when they go on year end sale. I will admit that the bronze color is not as alluring to me as some of the other colors.

    I dont understand how other places have this reel for sale when it is supposed to be a catfish connection exclusive?

    I got mine delivered today, and I really like it.

    I love that color, I used to do a lot of beach fishing for sharks and I have a few penn 4/0s that I have built up with Accurate frames in bronze. I believe that bronze cat would make a great addition to my collection.
