any body have one of these yet.was wondering if they would be worth trying.
I've seen the rods on Bass Pro's site, and I've seen the combo's in store. The rods with the combo's are not the same as the rods that sell by themselves. After reading the specs, I honestly believe that they are the same blanks and guides as the Quantum Big Cats, they are just dressed up with EVA grips and white graphics, like a "catfish rod" should be.
im also wandering about this too.
i bought one today,at bps it seems to be a good rod.i got the 7'6 heavy action ,it has a good tip action for circle hooks .the other ones felt too flem-z
Give us an update after you tangle with the biggun's!!
I've got two and four more soon. I really like them a little heavy when spooled up but who when there is fish on the other end ya won't even notice.
hope the hell there stronger than this one:smile2:
That was funny:smile2:.Mine are the river combos. I have never been let down buy any of my Quantums thats all my Cat equipment is.
I havent seen them but i hope they have more luck that what he has in some of his videos
PURE JUNK!! Just received two from bps, pulled the first one out and the tip was broken off, pulled out the second....whewww it was intact proceeded to do the load test, the rod didn't even make it to 45 degree angle...SNAP between the 2-3 eye. They were the 7'9" Med action and should have been alot more flexible than that. Needless to say back to Ugly Sticks big game rods.
I myself had problems with my ugly stick big game rod. Caught a 20 lb channel last summer and my mono line cut threw the inserts in the top three eyelets, got lucky and didn't break but since then it went to the trash.
mono cut your eyes. never heard of that happening. just thought that was brad that cut eyes:confused2:
The fish took off on a run and that must have done it cause I had just restrung the pole that day. They were fine before I left.
witch trash can was it :big_smile: tips are cheeeep:crazy:
oops just reread i thought it was just the top one not three:crazy:
wow. thats a first ive heard of mono doung that. but it does cause friction and friction causes heat. braid does it from sawing. suppose yours must have burnt. just never had heard that.:confused2:
Quantum = junk bill dance is a g00ber too :/
my brother n law bought the river combo last year when the rods were all white and that rod feels solid. i was at bass pro sat. and the ones with the orange wraps feel flimsy and week. i assume the ones on the combo switched to theise too but i didnt look. if they did i wouldnt advise getting any of theise.
