Catfish rods and Reels What is your favorite combo

I have two 6'6 ugly stiks with Okuma CD65 reels, that I've had for nearly seven years, the wife has a 6'0 pink ugly stick rod with a pink shakesphere ladyfish reel, and I bought a cat stick two years ago for 19.99 as a back up and it hasn't broken yet, ( caught a couple 20 plus pounders on it and it held up ). I use 65lb test power pro on all my catfishing set ups, even on the wife's.
Fishing is easy, catching is the hard part.

How are those war rods working out for you?

Catfish rods and Reels What is your favorite combo

I'm fixing to try out 2 7,6" heavy action telescoping casting rods for catfishing. I'm going to put my Shimano 251B on one and a BPS Oceanmaster 4000 or a C3 on the other. These rods are rated for 3/8 to 2 oz. and seem like they would be great for casting heavy rigs and fighting decent fish. Any opinions or others who have used heavy retractable butt section casting rods for catfish?

I've used pro angler rods and I'm sold on those. After my tin is all setup that's all that will be in my there.
