After reading numerous posts about catfish safari I decided to buy one and it came in today. I got the river rod. Wow, I have paid a lot more for rods and they don't compare. This rod is great. :big_smile: I ordered a abu black cat to put on there and gona go with either 30 or 50# stealth. Its partner in crime is spinning 2 piece tiger rod with a penn catpiva live liner 5000 model. I am adequatley equiped thanks to you guys. Now I just have to catch them.
