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

Rated 4 out of 5 by Avidhunterohio 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wineo 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.
