Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassfishrw Extremely Strong This is one of the strongest poles that i have ever used. It is very thick, but for how thick it is, the pole tip is very sensitive and durable. May 18, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShaneZ Tough Fishing for cat, needed something ibg and beefy to use with the catmaxx80 reel, Ugly's have always been good to me so I got this, and I like it! November 6, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by MrLargeMouth theCatRod this is my very favorite rod for cats very sturdy sturdy enough to pull out those monsterous 50 pound flatheads I love. if u dont like to cat fish you need to give it a shot in my opinion it is one of the funest fish to catch and for people who think it is a trash fish it is any thing but in .my opinon it is one of the most flavorful and best tasting fish in the world. but any ways this is the best rod i have ever used for those giant flatheads bullheads and channel cats and for a verry resonable price it is a very exxxxxelent cat rod February 18, 2007

A:Yes you can use this rod for other fish. I have used this rod for catfish more than any other species, but I have used it for bass, walleye, and muskie too and it works great for all of them.
