Rated 4 out of 5 by Lurch1219 Good for the price It works better than just tying a string to a tree. The spring mechanism is a little junky but what do you expect for the price. July 24, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by fireaxe53059 Impressive Very sturdy construction. Although I have not caught anything with the cat-o-matic yet I am very imperssed with its ease of opperation. I am looking forward to getting a lot of use out of these basic automatic reel's. I am working on a way to hook these to my buddies pontoon with out fastening them permanently. August 19, 2011

Details:i fish in a small back water creek but it is known that this creek is home to many catfish over 50 pounds. my freind caught a 150 lb cat
A:It just puts enought pressure to hold them on the hook.
A:it does not pull the fish out of the water unless the catch is a bluegill or other small fish

A:I had one simular to this unit a few years ago ,and if you are fishing for Brim/bluegill ,yes it will reel them in ! It was strong enough to do that when I owned one! "Good Luck!"
