    Just curious to know if anyone has this combo and if its a quality combo. I saw it on catfish connection and it was only 45. They dont really say if the rod is Medium or heavy or a combonation of them both, but if anyone has one dont hesitate to let me know how well it works for you. I know I know I saw the abu's and they are 100 dollars but I'm strapped for cash (boat) and need to try to spend less than that.

    I have a CL30 and it is alright. It does not cast very well and the drag can scare me at times. I will not use it chasing big cats anymore but i have spooled with smaller line and use with downriggers and it works well for that. I believe the CL are trolling reels but not positive on that.
