I'm looking to add a couple spinning rigs. I was thinking of pairing an Okuma avenger baitfeeder 40 with a 8 foot uglystik catfish rod for a channel set up. Does that rod and reel set up sound right? I was thinking the 50 for a more dual purpose channel/flathead reel again I was considering the 8ft uglystik catfish rod. Like always I am open to other suggestions. Thanks in advance Fred
It's like playing chess with a pigeon, no matter how good you are at chess. The pigeon is just going to knock over the pieces, crap on the board, and strut around like its victorious.

Epixor EB baitrunner... My brother caught a 40 pound flathead just after he got a set and he said it handled it like a champ... He just bought my old one off me and is about to repaint it for his girlfriend birthday... And it's the one he had.. He got it used and its still in great working condition with very little maintenance... I think it's around 10 years old, but the paint is starting to peel from age... I HAVE NEVER REPLACED A PART OR FIXED ANYTHING!!!
i have the 50 Avenger paired with a Quantum big cat 7'6" rod. Nice set up, i really like the reel. But as im beginning to fish heavier current and larger rivers im fishing only baitcast now. But i did land a 35 with it a couple years ago. I thought the drag was going to explode when the fish hit fast current but it held up. You wont be disappointed with it.
