catmaxx rods I have two of the 10 foot rods and I love them you cant beat the rods I just think the rods would be a hole lot better If they had stainless steel eyes and I think every one would agree with me August 9, 2014
Best Cat Rod I have 2 10` and 2 11` models and love them both. The only disadvantage i can see is the rod eyes are prone to breaking. This was a huge downfall on the earlier models, but they have gotten better, not 100% but close. I have caught hundreds of cats 15-70lbs between the 4 rods and have never had one fail. Stay away from the cat maxx reels they dont have the power for big cats. Go with an ABU 6500C3 from the reel counter and walk out ready to tangle with the biggest cat you can find! July 25, 2014
Best gift the wife ever got. Purchased the catmaxx casting combo 7'6" live bait model "for the wife" three years ago and could not be happier. I have changed all cat rigs over to braid and circle hooks for the muddy mo and this rig is perfect for this type of fishing. Very forgiving at boatside yet has the power for large fish and fast current. The Mrs. can't wait to try it. February 18, 2014
Buy over and over again I have the 7 ft. Cat Maxx rod been with me for 4 seasons ,I can find no wrong in the rod I have it hooked up with a CM80 Spinning Reel even with the Cat Maxx Reel I can find no wrong with either Rod or Reel all I can say if you are thinking about The Cat Maxx Combo get it I have pulled in a few good size cats a 5 lb. and 10 lb. going to get another one this fall think I will go with the 10 Ft. rod this time . Or longer . I clean my rod and reel each time I return home no matter if I catch one or not. August 14, 2013

A: 
They also have a Catmaxx CMX Spin series as well, it will be better because casting rods have different guides for the proper reel application,as well the rod is built so it bends the opposite direction compared to how the spinning reel sits.

H stands for heavy, you would use that for catfishing and other techniques that require heavy gear.
MH stands for medium-heavy, you would use that for regular bass fishing.

A: 
I have never used one for this, but having handled them before I would think they would be great. They have a very soft tip which would be great for casting livers without ripping them off of the hook and still have enough backbone to handle a good sized fish.

A: 
The soft tip and bend of the rods are great for soft bait. the hard the rods the more bait you'll lose on the cast. if like to use soft bait take to soft and flexability of the rod the better it be.

Not sure about 8 oz but I have used 6oz and it handles that fine. And yes braided line works just fine. I use it on all of my catmaxx rods and so do everyone else I know that has them.

A: 
I dont know about that...but I know a tip to fix new or older rod with guide insert problems(w/reg crazyglue)( no gel)starting with the problem always looking from the tip towards the reel base.Snap insert back on properly believe it or not there is a foward and back bevel difference on that ring(that why I do it when rods are new)Once snapped in,again your looking from the tip end of rod ..down. Apply a drop or 2 to the seam where ring and guide sit at the base part of the guide....and on a CASTING ROD ON THE HOOP SIDE.

No glow tips.. Yes, they'll handle carp just fine..(Hooked into several 30 pounders while fishing for blues..). Strongs rods, just don't like the guides though(i.e eyes) They're flimsy..
