An exclusive Bass Pro Shops series for those who chase the whiskered giants of the deep. Our beefy, heavy-duty CatMaxx spinning rods have the muscle to haul blues and flatheads out of their snaggy lairs. Made of tough IM7 graphite with heavy-duty double-footed guides, rugged Pac Bay® tip tops for ultimate ''surge protection'' and cork handles for a non-slip grip. Plus each model features a reflective white tip to allow for easy bite detection at night.
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT. (UPDATED) "I OWN A 9 FOOT CATMAXX ROD AND I AM VERY PLEASED THAT IT IS SO STRONG AND DURABLE, AS WELL AS SENSITIVE WHEN GETTING ANY TYPE OF BITE. I USE THIS ROD IN SALTWATER FROM THE BANK AND I HAVE CAUGHT HUGE STING RAYS BACK TO BACK WITH NO PROBLEMS, SKATES, SHARKS, AND HALIBUT. STILL NO STURGEON THOUGH, BUT WHEN THE TIME COMES I KNOW I WILL BE ABLE TO DEPEND ON MY CATMAXX ROD." UPDATE, I FINALLY CAUGHT THAT STURGEON WITH THIS ROD LAST YEAR AND THIS CATMAXX ROD IS SUPER SOLID AND DIDNT GIVE ME ANY PROBLEMS DURING THE BATTLE. I LOVE THIS SPINNING ROD. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome rods I was looking for a Catfish rod to give me long casts and also power to haul em in. This rod is it! I have tried other rods but this rod does both much better. Very nice power, you can feel the control and also casts longer than all my other rods. I have 4 CatMaxx rods now and getting ready to buy 2 more. If your looking for the perfect rod to fish from the bank for big cats. Look no further. And the price cant be beat. Thanks Bass Pro for a great product. June 5, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding!!!!!!! I bought the 8' rod and the action is very stif. It is more than cable of bringing in fish more then its weight capacity. Casts far! Well made. I plan on bying 2 more for catfishing. December 6, 2007

A: 
Yes. This is a ridged pole and is suitable for large catfish. If you are looking for the 5 to 10 pound catfish it might be a bit much as you can just about skip those fish across the water with the right reel. For 25 pound and heavier they are great.

A: 
No the chart is wrong!!!!! Since it is for BIG catfish the weights (sinkers) will be up to 8oz and some of the listed line weights are wrong, don't try to toss an 8oz sinker with those. Also the 10' rod is sometimes listed as MH and some times H, I am sure it is "H" heavy.

I am looking at the 8' MH and wonder if it will cast 3/8oz to 3/4oz lures without too much difficulty.

A: 
These rods feature a relatively quick tip so as long as your using a line thats good for casting like trilene xl or a smaller braid then yes is will throw the lighter weights without a problem as long as your not throwing a delicate livebait that might be torn from the hook. But the 8' model is one peice, thats something to keep in mind when transportation is an issue.

I HAVE USED IT TO CAST 1 OZ TO 3 OZ. DISC LEAD SINKERS. I FEEL IT CAN HANDLE THE WEIGHT BUT THE FEEL MAY NOT BE THERE. I USE IT PRIMARILY FOR CATFISHING WITH LIVER OR LIVE BAIT.
