Haven't tried them out yet, but I plan on going flathead hunting in the near future. 7000C3 on an Ugly Stick Tiger, and the 330GTi going on a 7' Nitestick. This is my long term fishing investment, let me know what you guys think about these rigs. I have gotten a ton of good advice on these forums and I thank you all. Oh and I bought my father a 7' Nitestick and a new PENN 209m for it for his birthday. Hope to be down in OK testing it out with him this winter.
