    Has anyone used the 6'6" Muskie Rod from Bass Pro, it's only 39.00 and it's rated for 20-50 lb. test but the lure weight is only 3/8 to 1 1/2 oz. ???? why would something with the muscle to pull in 50 lb. only be setup for such a small lure weight and would this be a good catfish rod to horse in cats or are there difference in the power of muckie and catfish when hauling them in. I have thought about buying one in the past due to the price but never did cause I use 3-5 oz. weights on the average.
