Rated 5 out of 5 by mad63 Great crappie pole
Great quality pole with lots of action. Makes catching crappie exciting and fun. A little heavy in the sixteen foot version when you first pick it up but gets better the more you use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RidgeRunneR937 Multipurpose Rod
I actually ordered 2 of these rods to support wires, along their length, to make a homebrew rotatable dipole antenna for use with my ham radio. I needed something strong, lightweight, and easily made compact. I DO fish as well, and I may use them for that too, but one may be advised, there are no eyes for line and there isn't a groove to mount a reel. There is a loop at the end of the rod to tie line and toward the handle there is a location to wrap your line when not fishing. Basically, it's like a really long, lightweight cane pole that you can collapse. They will defintely get to those hard to reach crappie holes. I can hold the rod, fully extended, with one hand at the base. It is definetely lightweight. I have used the rods, as I originally intended, in some fairly strong wind gusts and they would bow fairly far so they're strong as well. Each rod collapses down to about 4 to 5 feet, so they're compact. I would definetely recommend them for what I use them for and would also recommend them if you are looking to get into some hard to reach crappie spots that a cane pole like fishing technique will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DarrenM Lots of fun
Bought this in the 20' length recently. Pole is a lot of fun to use for any fish that'll take the bait.
Usually bottom fish with it. I rig the line length equal to pole length, use either a slip float or special float for bottom fishing, then a weight with a snelled #8, 6 or 4 Gamakatsu circle hook.
Small fish feel like monsters. Also have other models in 10', 12', and 13' lengths.
Doesn't get much simpler than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bassharrier 20 ft of fish whooping fun
Bought this pole for them lazy summer days when I didn't want to be casting all the time. I just walk along the bank letting the jig swim along and jig it in fishy looking spots. Brings back memories of years gone by.
For a fiberglass pole it is suprisenly sensitive and will handle good size fish. Smaller folks might want to consider the shorter lengths as the 20 ft. does get a little heavy after awhile.
All in all a good entry level pole.
