Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome My uncle bought one of these and caught me some nice size catfish. So my brother, dad, and I bought one each. They are very durable and can be used for a lot of different fishing. Like i used it for fluke, stripers, and even trout. This is a very nice rod and reel combo. May 15, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, solid rig Bought one of these on a whim about a year ago to go after some of the big cats on the Santee Cooper lakes, and since have bought two more. Very easy to use for the wife (she outfishes me more times than not) but is sturdy enough to handle large fish (landed a 30+ lb blue with no problem). April 23, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by ugly stik catfish I have caught cats up to 7 lbs on this rod and would not be afraid to take on a 40+ pounder. would make a great croaker rod as well. April 15, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by great pole I go out to my buddy's house on Lake Whithurst all the time and go night fishing. He lives on the water with a dock in his back yard. This is a great live bait rod and you know when something takes your bait. It's great to not have to guess when something is on your line. This is the best live bait rod I've ever used.

Have looked everywhere and can't find a real answer. I can see on the rod in the picture if you zoom in, you can see the caps for 12 and 14... but nothing else.

A: 
Okay, the truth is that if you are worried that you might get spooled if you can only fit 100 yards of 14 lb. test on your reel, then you are fishing with the wrong setup. A rod like that probably casts about 40, maybe 50 yards depending on your bait size and other factors. When bass fishing, or cat fishing for that matter, this is more than adequate. If a fish then takes another 50 yards off when hooked, dude, that ain't no bass. If it's a catfish, it's a legend.

I have caught many carp on my setup, this rig works great for both catfish and carp. I've had some real fighters on the line and the pole is strong enough to pull in the big hawgs.

A: 
The rod doesnt glow in the dark, its marketed as having the top three eyelets glow in the dark. But they dont, so you may want to throw a bell on the end. Not a big deal by any means though, still a great combo.

A: 
it holds 250 yards of 15 lb. line and 220 yards of 17 lb. line. if you are catching bigger fish like catfish i would use 17 lb. but if its smaller fish use 15 lb. line. although i would just get 17 lb. line just in case.

firstly check and see how much 12lb mono would fit, and yes it would handle it, I've used 20lb braid on small spinning reels, around 8lb and as long as you dont wind up the drag it'll do well
