Bass Pro Shops CatMaxx Baitcast Rod and Reel Combo
Catfishing is not for the faint of heart. You never know...you could hook into a monster at any time. That's why our Bass Pro Shops® CatMaxx™ Baitcast Combo is built like a tank, with a matching rod and reel setup that can tame a catfish of any size, even in swift current.
Our CatMaxx CMX3000B Baitcast Reel features a rigid 1-pc. aluminum frame and sideplates with a double-anodized, forged aluminum spool, and high-strength brass gearing. Its 5.2:1 gear ratio is both tough enough to turn heads, and quick enough to maintain control on a run toward cover. You'll like its smooth 4-bearing system with Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse, externally adjustable magnetic brake, 6-disc Teflon/stainless steel drag, and heavy-duty aluminum handle. And of course, it's equipped with an audible bait clicker.
Our CatMaxx Casting Rod is the perfect complement. Its high-vis white blank is made of a blend of E-glass and carbon, to withstand heavy abuse, and topped with structurally reinforced, snag-resistant Pac Bay® DPL guides. Our EVA handle sports a crosshatched shrink-wrap grip, flared rubber butt, and an integrated cushioned reel seat for maximum stability.
