    I just purchased a Roddy Hunter combo (191 linecounter level wind reel, 8'6" medium action rod) over eBay. Has anyone out there had experience with this brand?

    I received the Roddy Hunter 191s in the mail yesterday. At first glance, there is nothing that would indicate a quality or durability issue. The body is plastic, but, then again, that's also true of my Tidewater. The real test will be actually using the things.

    The bad news is that I'll have to wait for summer and saltwater fishing for that; the catfish here are so small that reeling them in on 20# line is overkill.
