I was wanting to know what would be a good rod for a 7000. I have a 7000ICS Rocket and a 7000 CL Big Game Old School. I do not want to break the bank. But I want a rod that will be able to do the job with a 40 to 50 pound fish on the end. I have the 2 reels to do the job. Now I need me a set of good rods

Well it just so happens I have recently matched up the Abu Garcia 7000ICS Pro Rocket Reel with the Catfish Safari Flathead Rod and must say they make a real nice marriage! :cool2: Not sure what you consider "breaking the bank" but the rods go for $80 plus shipping!

Dustin, take your time on deciding what rods you want or BEFORE you know it you'll have 10 different brands of rods! There are several GOOD rod companies out there! I have Surge, Qauntom, Shakespeare, Berkley, G Loomis, Fenwick, etc. I use most of these rods for different applications. Its hard to find a rod thats perfect for ALL conditions, lakes with light weights, River with 16oz current, drifting w/3-4oz, lightweight rods, sensitive tips for circle hooks and stiff rods for BIG baits and lots of struture and 10-24oz weights! I guess you see what I mean, as you experiment with new CAT tactics your arsenal grows SO take your time and look at what each brand of rod offers you and your individual budget.:big_smile:
