Cat Shot - 7'6" Medium Heavy Casting

If you plan on “dogfighting” with a catfish then you are going to need the right equipment to bang with the beasts. The Old 18 Cat Shot series combines feather-touch sensitivity with monster-yanking strength. Doesn’t matter if you’re pulling flatheads in the river beds, battling blues off of the floor, or coersing channel cats – the Cat Shot rod will give you the advantage.

“Cat Shot” is a term used by naval aviators to describe the exhausting force of launching from a catapult on an aircraft carrier. Nothing could be more appropriate to describe the war with an angry cat that wants to wear you out. The Old 18 Cat Shot is ready for the fight by giving you our custom designed fore-grip, durable guides, and backbone for days. Prepare for the war by arming yourself with the best.

    I bought the Med Heavy back on Black Friday for myself and my two brothers. I have caught my personal best Bull Red (42″) on it so far at the Texas City Dike and it was a great experience. My setup was a non-levelwind Penn Fathom II with 30lb mono. This rod is an easy loader but still has the back bone to give it some snap on the cast. I was pitching 4 oz. plus larger chunk bait and never lost the bait on a hard cast due to the action. The medium is obviously less stiff but still feels very strong. My favorite feature is the for-grip. For a conventional user it offers a lot of grip for the manual line winding. Even with fighting a large fish I never had issues with needing to reposition my hands due to failing grip. I would absolutely love for Old 18 to put out a 2pc. 10-12″ surf rod using the same for-grip. I will be purchasing some more for myself and my brothers for our spinner set-ups. Thanks Old 18!
