Black Cat Passion Pro 3,00m 300-600g catfish rods

The catfish rod Black Cat Passion Pro makes a pretty good impression at first sight. It lies very well in the hand and feels generally very high quality. That speaks for the material and the workmanship of this rod.

If you look at the price, you can see that catfish fishing does not always have to be expensive. The catfish rods are in the middle price segment and are therefore definitely suitable for beginners.

The design also convinces with the yellow gradations. Rhino Black Cat is well known for its wide and varied selection of catfish rods. The catfish rod has a total length of 3.20 m and a casting weight of 300 to 600 g. This of course gives you the possibility to use really heavy weights. The weight of the catfish rod is 520 g and is therefore not the heaviest rod.

The transport length is 1,56m. We have been able to transport the catfish rod in a normal VW Passat estate car without any problems and without making it look bulky. The used and installed lowrider rings provide an optimal line guidance.

With these rings you also have the possibility to use braided lines with the catfish rods. This allows you to fish even heavier target fish. In the following you will find a picture of the catfish rods:

After we have dealt with the MAD CAT BLACK HEAVY DUTY catfish rods in the last article, we will now look at the SPRO Monster Cat 270 catfish rod and test it in detail. We wish you a lot of fun with this article.

The SPRO Monster Cat 270 is a little bit smaller than the previously introduced catfish rods but the stronger. It has a total length of 2,70 m and consists of 2 parts. This catfish rod is also equipped with SiC rings and a DPS reel seat.

Furthermore it has a stronger reel foot than normal catfish rods. Due to this reinforcement you have an enormous grip when you are drilling and the catfish rod is therefore very comfortable in your hand.

Furthermore the SPRO Monster Cat 270 has neoprene material on the handle for a very comfortable grip. This is what distinguishes it in the catfish rod test from cork rods like the MAD CAT BLACK HEAVY DUTY. Due to the neoprene material the catfish rod is very comfortable to use when drilling even with larger catfish. In addition, this rod is very reasonable in price.

Furthermore it is very handy to carry. With a transport length of 1,40m it is by far the smallest catfish rod on the market. The casting weight of the SPRO Monster Cat 270 catfish rods is 80 to 300 g. This is not the highest casting weight in comparison, but is compensated by the stable material. The total weight of the catfish rod is 446 g and is therefore very comfortable to carry.

As usual with catfish rods this one is also very robust and strong. This is due to the blank used.  You can feel this already when you hold it in your hand. We have tested this catfish rod on shore and were very impressed.

With a length of 2,60m it is not the smallest rod but very suitable for the shore. The casting weight of the rod is 300 g and is therefore in the middle segment of all tested rods.

The price is also in the middle segment. However, we think that this price is justified for this catfish rod.

Balzer Diabolo 5 Catfish Rods in the Catfish Rods Test

Now we will write in detail about the Balzer Diabolo 5 Catfish Rods in this article. Have fun with our product report.

The Balzer Diabolo 5 Catfish rod is a really cheap catfish rod which is perfect for beginners. It is a plug rod. It consists of two parts.

Unfortunately we had to find out with our test rod that the plug connection was a bit stuck. Therefore we think that this catfish rod can only be loaded to a certain degree and would break at catfish over 2,00 m. However, this rod is suitable for beginners and for smaller waters.

Due to the size of 2,10 m this catfish rod falls under the smallest catfish rods and is therefore very suitable for stowing away. The casting weight with up to 390 g is quite acceptable compared to the other tested catfish rods.

Picture:

Summary:

  • Length: 2,10 m
  • Casting weight: 80 – 390 g

Conclusion:

Very suitable for beginners but from a certain level of experience you should use better catfish rods. Expectations should not be too high at this price.

The Cormoran Big Cat Ultra Lifter catfish rods are also very suitable for catfish fishing on shore.  When we had tested the rod on shore we could make precise casts quickly and easily.

Like the previous models, this is also a push rod. We were also convinced by the device and mechanism which is very simple and smooth.

This catfish rod can be transported without any problems. We also liked the handle. This is very comfortable, and therefore also suitable for a long drill.

Picture:

Summary:

  • Length: 2,85m
  • Casting weight: 150-450g,
