I recently decided to get back into catfishing and have been looking into a getting new setup. Looking at the Shimano IX4000 Reel and Shimano FX Spinning Rod 60 using Berkley Gorilla Tough 35/10 line. I don't have alot of cash to spare at the moment and that probably won't change any time soon. So I'm looking for the cheapest stuff that's still usable. Both the rod and reel is on sale at the local sports store for $9.99 each and and it looks like I can get the line for about $8+shipping online. That puts it at about $35 all said and done and that's pretty easy on my budget :lol: So will these three work together OK? What's the heaviest fish I can expect to pull in on that? I've read that Gorilla Tough line is pretty abrasive and that can wear out your reel faster. How serious of a problem is that? If the reel lasted a year or two with semi-casual catfishing (2-3 outtings a month?) then I'd be happy with it, for that price. So what's the verdict folks?
