What brand/size line would you suggest I use for my poles?

I fish from the bank, primarily for catfish.

I'm going to be using 10' Pro Angler Rods.

I usually use 3 poles:  2 spinning reels and 1 baitcast.  Baitcast is a Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 5600C4.  Spinning are a Penn PUR6000 (just got this one last week) and an old Shakespeare I've had for years.

Right now I use 1.5oz egg singers.  I'm about to start trying out 3oz no-roll sinkers as well.

You will want to up the size of the sinkers you are using with the 10 footer.  You can easily use 4-6oz weights and the rod will load up much better for you.

Personal Best 51lb. Blue


I really like the tangerine 30lb. Suffix you can get from Pro Angler.

Would it be ok to double up weights?
Two 3oz or one 3oz and one 1.5oz?

I have doubled up before and done o.k.  I don't use the no roll, I use a bell shaped bank sinker 5-6oz.  But, nothing says you can't make it work!

Not the biggest, but big enough -- 59lb Blue

Two 3oz or one 3oz and one 1.5oz?

3 oz will fly, use them up then next time buy bigger.

I use 3oz on mine an I can still chunk it out there. Yes 4-5 oz will go far but no need to loose then twice as fast.

I throw 3's and 4's. I have some 5's butt didn't like the way they loaded up the PA rods (older model) when throwing a large bait. 
I throw 3's on all rods except 2.
I've got some 5 oz weights if anyone's interested.
As far as line goes, I've never used the line from PA. I like the high vis green from ANDE
