normally only use run rig set ups
for pellet or meat I use 5-6oz leads with Kevlar hooklinks with 4/0-6/0 eagle wave hooks
for polyball -dumbbell or tipper rigs I use up to 10oz leads on a 4" boom with both using ceramic rod ring eyes
I prefer to fish livey's and my preferred method is a tie off rig

It's not just tc but action mate. Your best bet would be a cat pro too cat i think they are called 65 each. Just bought myself a set. Or alternatively look on askari, they do some very cheap cat rods. Tons of choice on there.
The cat pro are 4.5lbers, I have a set of dam ones from askari too that are just under 6lbers, sounds like way too much but trust me they aren't. Hook wise have a look at owner cutting point, in 1/0 or bigger. They do come up a bit small so I wouldn't go smaller than 1/0 (I usually use 2/0 or 3/0)

I had no idea about this, I will read up on it. Thanks for all the advice
What sort of Test Curve would be ideal? 3.5tc?

2.75lb carp rods? Nowhere near suitable chap, and can lead to prolonged battles which in turn cause a lactic acid build up in the fish which can cause death. Get yourself the right rods, coupled with mainline of 25lb minimum, 1/0 or bigger hooks

I was using my carp rods which are 2.75tc so I guess your right. I had strong 100LB braid main line and Kevlar hook links. Maybe I need to go bigger with the hooks. I don't normally go for the cats but I wouldn't mind catching a biggie.

What a session I had at Furnace lakes on their Plantation lake. Fished Friday morning through to Sunday morning.
Had 3 runs in the session, 1 was an aborted run and the other 2 were imo very big cats!
I was playing the first cat for 5 minutes before I got snapped off. The second cat I was playing for about 20 minutes and I was taking it nice and easy when it pinged off. It straightened out my size 2 hook

Even though I blanked I had a great time, going back end of the month. I have unfinished business

I'm fishing for cats this weekend. I'm going to be using 2 oz running rigs with an assortment of baits.
Furnace lakes is the venue and the cats are on the feed.
