Great rod This is the best 10 foot rod I have. Very durable and makes casting easy. July 28, 2012
good rod I got my first one about a month ago and after using it I ordered another. I got the 9ft. MH and it works fine for lake and slow moving water, if I did a lot of river fishing I would get a heavier rod. The 2pc. makes it easier to transport. June 22, 2012
Great rod! Bought the 9ft rod, second outing caught a 25lb blue cat. Amazed at the light weight and sensitivity. Have had no problems at all! May 30, 2012
Great Cat Rod Really the best catfish'n rod Ive ever purchased, it replaced my Berkley Reflex. The 7' is perfect for all cats. May 23, 2012

I have had poor luck with the guides on this rod. But I love the action in the blanks. So I would like to replace the guides and tip-top. I would like to know the size so I do not have to buy a tip-top scale

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.

Has anyone used the 7'9" live bait modle rods? The tip seems very flimsy, but it looks like it could casst live baits better without having them fall off the hook.
