Those Pro Anglers are rated as 15/30 class rods, which would make them about the same as the 8ft ugly white cats. Good for channels and smaller flats and blues. Shakespeare calls them Medium Heavy rods. The Cat Fight Takedowns are rated as 20/50, so there is a big difference in them. Don't pay any attention to the term "Medium Heavy" when you are looking for a rod. What you are looking for is the line rating and the action of the rod. If you can't wait on the takedowns to get in, try the Original Cat Fight rod. It is a rod you will keep in your arsenal even if you want to get a heavier rod later.
This thread was brought to my attention because I designed the ProAnglerTackle catfish rods. First let me say thanks for the attitude this forum has regarding the wide variety of rods on the market. I know that it is impossible to corner the entire market on rod sales and have been pleased with the support my product has received over the years. I will never bash any other products out there.
Just a brief introduction for the designer of the rods. Our goal when we first began designing the rods was to create a quality product at an affordable rate. That was accomplished.
We currently have the following rods available: 7.5'M Action 7.5' MH Action 7.5' M Action Pink Rod 10' 2 piece H action Bank rod 12' 2 piece H action bank rod
Each rods is available in Baitcast or Spinning with the option of Cork or EVA handles
The M action has landed multiple fish on Lake Tawakoni in the 70s
The MH has landed shark on the coast in the 200 lb range
the 10' rod has landed alligator gar in the 200 lb range
The 12' rod is our newest rod and I'm not sure what poundage it has topped to at this time.
The are a lot of quality product out there and if you would like to give ours a chance feel free to contact me personally.

Thanks for posting on here. This has popped up on multiple forums over the years and no one seems to ever have any info or personal experience on the rods. So it's nice to get some feed back. I would actually like to test out one of these rods, been wanting to for a while actually just haven't gotten around to it.
Quickest way to see the rods in action is on Facebook. There are multiple videos available that users have posted on the following Facebook Page: "Pro Angler Tackle" You will need to join the group, I will approve and you can scroll thru the posts and see multiple videos.
You can also call me on my cell number I posted above when you want to order.
