I purchased a black n blue rod from catfish gear usa.It is7'6 n m/h act. 20-60 lb line n it works beautifuly for bank fishing in a big lake.Has anyone else used this pole.I'm torn between purchaseing another or getting a catfight takedown rod.could I get some knowledgeable advice.Ill be using an alphamar 16.thanks.
I used to have quite a few of them. Really liked the action of the rod. The takedown in my honest opinion is the better rod. The black and blues are not stainless eyes but chrome plated and wears off after time. For the money your getting more with the take down rod.

yea i have also wore out a few of the black and blues. for the money though i wouldnt get another. there are better options out there. i am really rough on gear though. i always wore the clear coat off of them
Today me n afew friends went out n tried each others rigs they had the ugly stick catfish- the quan.big cat nevary other store bought cat rod nothing came close to my black n blue n cat chaser rod not abeef stick shaksphear tiger or shimano.they all felt generic unpredictable n boring.everyone wanted my customs so I don't know, I believe something is to be said for hand made quality ...
