Rated 5 out of 5 by Jrkessler85 from Perfection From looks to performance this reel is amazing! Currently saving up for another one! I paired it up with my okuma battle cat rod and love the entire set up, there's not a catfish that this thing won't haul in! Did I mention it looks amazing haha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clarksville Catter from Wow! What a Great Reel I live in Clarksville Virginia, the home of the 144 pound world record blue cat. Over the last few years I have had other types of reels. They have even broken at the gears near the spool. I regularly catch 30 to 50 pound blue cats on a regular basis. I had a couple of old Abu Garcia reels that I have used for years in salt water. Even though they are old I have depended on them and no problems. About a month ago I bought 2 C3 7000 catfish specials. Their performance is outstanding. I usually drift fish with 6 rods at a time. I plan to get 2 more catfish specials in the near future, that way I will have only Abu Garcia reels on my boat. Thanks for a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tommy Johnson from The Perfect Catfish Reel!!! This reel is absolutely the best catfishing reel I have ever used! I bought it a few weeks ago, spooled it up with some Power Pro 50# braid, put it on a Pro Angler Med Heavy 8' rod and, headed for the river. It casts like a rocket and reels in butter smooth! I especially like the extra large cranking handle. The carbon drag system will definitely put the brakes on a big ol' whisker kitty! I would highly recommend this reel to everyone from a beginner to a seasoned pro, whether you are fishing the shallows for channel cats, drift fishing big blues or, hunting down some big ol' flat heads this is by far the reel I would recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scalawag from Excellent choice, great quality My application for this reel is a little different. I paired it with a 7' custom rod and use it for a flipping stick/shiner rod. The reel cast smooth and has the power to drag large bass from heavy cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DWJ13 from Great reel for cat fishing. I bought the reel 2 weeks ago and love it. I have taken to the lake several times now and have had great success. I love setting on the lake cat fishing and the features of this reel are a great improvement over the reel I was using.
