    In 2001 Zepco/Guantum gave me seven of their big cat rods and seven Quantum Irons 410 and 420 to fish a catfish trial in my area. If you are going to fish for big cats they will do the job, no question about that. But for the typical cat that most of us catch, those in the 3 to 20 pound class, they are an overkill.

    I own three of them in med/hvy and have never had a problem. I have them matched with 7000c3 ABU.

    I have a 9' Quantum BigCat spinning rod I picked up at BPS a few years ago when it was marked down to 15 bucks. I really like it alot, although it is out of commision right due to one of the ceramic inserts falling out of one of the guides, and I've been to lazy to fix it. It has an advantage over my other rods as it is a 1 piece rod, which gives it a real nice feel. If you are mail-ordering, the fact that it's 1 piece may add to the shipping cost though....
