Just wondering if anyone has any info on these reels? I'm looking for a catfish reel and thought about getting this one. I would pair it up with a 6'6'' Medium heavy ulgy stick.

Any opinions?

:thanks

Seems like a very nice reel. What species are you going for? I don't think you'd need that for channel cats, any bass-fishing reel would do fine with those. I catch channel cats in the 5-20 lb range and my bass reel does just fine, I just crank the drag down some more using 20 or 30 lb braid (plus it's fun on light tackle haha). But if you're going for big flatheads or blues I would say you've picked the right reel. I just followed you on Instagram!

I couldn't respond when my account wasn't working for a while, did you end up getting one of those? I think it would pair well with an Ugly Stick or even Tiger rod.

I'm actually running a couple SKP2000s Shakespeare I picked up on eBay on my casting rods, however I'm more of a spinning guy really. I have a couple baitfeeder reels and a Quantum Iron on my spinning setups. Most of my catfish rods are all 7-8'.
