    has anyone purchased this combo? I was thinking about ordering it, but Im not too sure about the rod. I know it says 7 ft Casting. Here is the item on Catfish Connection.
    OKUMA CLASSIC CL450L 7ft COMBO

    Item Number: OKBD745


    If anyone has this combo, let me know how it performs and if the rod will be a sturdy cat rod, because I use mainly bluegills and other baitfish. Is the baitcast reel huge?

    I bought the reel last year (CL-452L?) and love it. Honestly though, I havn't used it as much as I would have liked, but from what I've seen so far, its a good reel.

    I would'nt trust the rod. But I had got the $26 Okuma last year and the drag broke. Then I got the $40 16oz. Okuma and it has been holding up well.
