    My favorite out of the 14 i got for catfishing would probley be my ABU GARCIA BRUTE matched up with a PENN 330GTI. I would try a ABU GARCIA WORKHORSE they are great rods, ten year warranty

    8 Foot Surge Elites topped with Shimano Tekota 600's. With this next order I'll have 5 Tekota 600's, and 2 Tekota 700's. Half of them are the versions with Line Counters so I can control the depths I run my baits when fishing for suspended fish. Its a pretty darn good setup for the Mississippi River in my neck of the woods.

    I have Ambassadeurs on Ugly Stick rods, and I have Ambassadeurs on Cabela's King Kat rods. I like both outfits.

    well of course that depends on what and wre you are fishing , in my home waters my mh ugly cat and my penn 9 or 10 are my favorites but i could only hope for a channel to go over #20 lbs on average maybe #12 being considerd the catch of the day being far and few in between . and this combo balances and handles quite well to boot .

    7'6 St. Croix Classic Cat with a Shimano Calcutta 400.

    I also love my 2 8'0 UglyCat, one with Abu 6500 TC and the other with a Abu 6500 C3.
