I am looking for a decent catfish reel at a decent price. I have used the Quantum Optix but haven't been entirely satisfied with it and the first one I had didn't last very long before it stopped working.

I am looking online at some reels from Bass Pro Shops and am wondering if anyone else has any first hand experience with these reels. Any information would be appreciated.

Wholesale sports has some good deals these days. Plus BassPro is in USD unless you make the trip to one of their stores in Canada.

I use the cabelas salt striker reel on my cat Rod and absolutely love it! No complaints from it so far plus it has the dual drag system which I don't particularly find helpful or cats but is nice to have if going for carp. There is also a salt striker reel without te dual drag for a bit less if that feature doesn't interest you.
