The Bill Dance Catfish Combos are Bill’s favorite heavy-duty whisker systems. There’s no ''right way'' to go after monster cats, so he’s designed well-matched combos to help you score in different situations. All feature large-capacity reels with ball-bearing-supported drive systems, high-powered gear ratios, and extra-strong drags. The rods are built ultra-tough with sturdy glass blanks, double-wrapped guides, and oversized EVA grips. The Spincast style has an extra-low gear ratio for protracted fights.
It can be. It is really made a bit long, heavy, and to slow action of the rod for full time smallmouth fishing. It is a big, heavy rod that works well in the rivers for big cats'. It can be used for more but would not recommend throwing tubes for smallies with it.
The picture on the website isn't actually what you receive. The reel is an 808 magnum and the pole is actually white. I wouldn't recommend using it in saltwater as the components are not rated for this use and you'll be replacing the reel within a couple of months.
