B'n'M Black Widow Crappie Rod
good cheap pole
I HAVE SEVERAL OF THESE RODS, I HAVE HAD A COUPLE NEW ONES BREAK THIS YEAR AND ONE ARRIVED WITHOUT A TIP. IT SEEMS IF THEY DON'T BREAK THEY LAST VERY WELL ONCE YOU GET PAST THAT FIRST USE. THEY ARE CHEAP ENOUGH TO PUT UP WITH THE ISSUES IF YOU HAVE ANY. THEY ARE GOODRODS ALL IN ALL.

There is nothing more fun then catching bluegill on a 20ft crappie pole - except for landing a 3 pound small mouth... which is what my wife did. We love these poles for just the fun of fishing. However, we did have problems with pole extensions sticking and then breaking.

Should have never bought it
Bought the 20 footer. Within 5 hours I had lost the (butt) end cap as it popped off (for the upteenth time) and fell into the lake. Within the next 5 hours I could not collapse the top 2 sections and now have a 10 foot section that would have had to be tossed if I didn't have a station wagon.
I'll never buy another B'n'M product if this is the stuff they put ou!

This is the second time I've purchased this type of rod.
I was disappointed at the durability of the first set, so I committed to being more gentle with this set. Too bad for me, I discovered that the quality of workmanship had generally diminished since my first purchase. In the case of each of 13' rods the plastic cap at the "butt"/large end of the rod was very poorly attached and would not stay in place to prevent the other parts of the rod from sliding out the largest opening and into the water/or onto the ground. I've had to add glue to each one of them to make them serviceable. As to the 10' rods, I haven't tried them out yet but basis the experience discussed above, I'm not optimistic.
