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.

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.

PUTS YOU IN THE RIGHT SPOT
THIS IS A GREAT POLE. ITS PERFECT FOR GETTING TO SPOTS THAT ROD AND REELS CAN'T. BEST POLE FOR WHITE PEARCH FISHING. IT REMINDS ME OF THE OLD SCHOOL POLE BUT EASIER TO HANDLE.
