    Steve, Do not try to buy your gear all at once, I got mine one rod,one reel and a mole here and then another mold [ I make my own sinkers]. I use shakespeare ugly stickes catfish rods the model number on these are ucca110170, 7 foot medium heavy rods, I really like those rods I have 8 of these rod, I also have a couple twss ca702040, I have tidewater reels on these two rods tw20 reels, I have ABU on the other 8 6600cs,6000,and 6500cs reels. I hope this helps.
