    Hey guys & gals !! This past season, CountryKat of the OGF, donated a hand made cattin rod for usage during the 2004 cattin season. The rod is a 6'6 ,one piece medium heavy action casting. The rod was put to test by yours truly :D , and OGF member truck . I found the rod to be everything a hand made ,custom rod should be. Very durable , with alot of backbone. truck used the rod while cattin the Ohio River. He said the rod performed very well and thought it was a good choice for catters. He preferes a longer handle than the rod tested had but overall, found it to his likings ;) . I fitted it with an ambass.6500 c4 reel and gave it a whirl. Very nice indeed !!! For those looking for a very nice rod for this coming catting season, check out CountryKats Rods ;) you will not be sorry !!! By the way, anybody wishing to use this donated rod for a month or so, please feel free to contact me . I am usually in an area close by so I could drop it off or make other arrangements ( via outings etc. ) The only thing I ask is for you to give a summary of what you think of the rod. Thank You Daryl (truck) for trying the rod out and a very special THANKS to CountryKat for the donated rod ;) .. THE CATKING !!!

    I'll make sure you get that rod this season Brian. I'll either see you along with Jackson, or I'll bring it to the Kids Outing. You can give it a spin for a few months ;) ........CK ~**~

    Rick,

    I bought a Carpin / Walleye / Steelhead rod off of him as well. I still haven't had the opportunity to land a fish on it (as I told him), but when I do I will have a full review for this rod to share as well. So far though.....it's casting capability is awesome :) Just waiting for the fight now.
