Will be getting 4 of these real soon y’all! I love my MH Mad Katz but these Medium Mad Kats are more like the stiffness of the MH rods I’m used to using. Look at that freakin bend!! If y’all are looking for a new rod this season then check out these Mad Kats! They are totally awesome rods and the best I’ve laid hands on! They are a little stiffer than most rods so get the action that one step down from what you are used to using.[Linked Image]

That pic is freakin amazing! How does a rod even do that? You are 100% right about Mad Catz. I have only had mine long enough to use them a couple times but they are beasts. I can't wait to tangle with a big fish on them.

I think I want the med/lite.

That bend is crazy. Good thing is if you don’t have enough room on the deck for all your rods or in rod holders then you can fold the Mad Katz up and put them in a storage box. Haha

I fished the Mad Katz Med light right next to Mediums that Jimmy had we could barely tell the difference between the 2.

Ok cool. How did the mediums compare to the WS on stiffness and action?

Also I guess I need to figure out what color rod I want. They offer too many awesome colors. Haha. Kind of digging the bolt color

Mad Katz Medium had a very similar action to the whisker seeker MH but Mad Katz is clearly a better rod all the way from top to bottom including the the grips, eyes, eye wraps, reel seats, and blanks! Mad Katz beats em in every category guaranteed. Built for putting in serious work!

I love the bolt and that’s what I was going to get but they were out of the MH when I ordered. I have the orange crush but I like a lot of them and I can’t decide which ones look the best. I’m going to get either the puzzle or the bolt for my medium actions do I can tell them apart!

I loving my Mad Katz so far. I’m up to 4 meds and 4 med lights. I have 1 MH ghost rod, if anybody wants to buy / check out. I decided to go with lighter rods this time around.

I have a couple patriots I’m using in Medium. I like ‘em fine. So now, I’m currently using WS, BnM, slimecat, and mad Katz. First 3 in MH, Mad Katz in M. I have Pro Anglers in the shed for back ups if needed.
I fished with some Hellcats this past weekend, I like them too. Might have to get a couple of them as well.

I’ve broken half my BCF rods so I’m done buying those Trent. I constantly hear guys complaint about the Hellcats breaking at the 6th eye too but have yet to hear a complaint about Mad Katz.

Mmmmm...

Catfish Dave over on Youtube just got given a bunch of em and he loves those rods.

I recently bought two Whisker Seeker rods and really like them, much better backbone that my two Ugly Sticks I have, and much better made (and more expensive).

So Chris, what sets the Mad Katz apart? I will be getting two more rigs this winter.

Also to mention reels, I have Abu 6500's, and while they work well they don't seem very well made imo. The tension nut on the spools come off and the line guides are really flimsy. I recently purchased two Daiwa Seagate reels, and LOVE them. They are beautifully made and simple to use, no line guides (I use my thumb), and the drag system is 10 times better than the Abu's. I bought them as Catfish Kayak, Justin, swears by them.


Retired from the grind and enjoying life and the great outdoors.

Abu 6500c3 is the standard and will get the job done but certainly not the best Bob. One good thing is they are easy to find guys who work on them and there are always parts available and always will be. If your Diawa needs service your gonna have a harder time finding someone to service it and get parts. As far as what makes Mad Katz stand apart? There are a lot of good rods out there but usually there is something I don’t like about each. I can’t find anything on the Mad Katz that I would change. Grip that sits perfectly in the rod holder without rocking with every wave, The cross cut Eva grip feels and looks incredible. The 3d aluminum reel seat is as good as any I’ve used and looks great too. 4 slots on reel seat with rod through design to feel the fish when it’s on. Best eyes I’ve seen,11 beefy, big and oversized and they are also triple wrapped for added strength. Glow tip for night fishing and fluorescent color for uv lights. Everything on the rod seems to be well thought out and over-engineered. 70000 rods sold and only 18 returned is amazing to me. I’ve returned half my whisker seekers, several BCF, and several Warrior Cats. Return was easy on all. The butt cap is the perfect size bulb that fits rod holders much better instead of a cylinder end cap or a bulb that is too big. Look at the flex on that Mad Katz above! Don’t want to do that with most rods! There are a ton of rods out there that will get the job done but I have never seen or heard one get such high praise and positive response as the Mad Katz have this past year. I waited to see how people have liked them you’ll find it hard to even hear a single person who gives a negative review of them. As with all gear things come down to personal preference so maybe someone else prefers something different but for me these Mad Kats have a check mark for everything I wanted in a rod.

I think I'm gonna keep my warrior cats for bank fishing or other times when I don't want to use my "good rods"...
