Extendable length gets you deep into the brush where lunker crappie hide!
The Black Widow is a telescoping rod that extends up to 10' to 20' depending on model. Its 100% fiberglass construction and fiberglass-reinforced joints provide extra durability and increased sensitivity—an excellent rod for jigging live bait. Rods are equipped with a metal eye tip and line-keeper clips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doonesbury Great Alernative to a Cane Pole!
I ordered this item because of it's ability to collapse into itself down to where its only about 4 feet long. It will then fit into the rod storage compartment in our boat very well. It only takes a few seconds to extend it to the full 13 ft. length and you're back to fishing again! There are just some times when a pole outdoes a rod and reel...like when you want to fish over into a bed of lilypads without getting entangled in them when retrieving your lure. In my opinion, this pole is just great! I would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes to cane pole fish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TEXCOYOTE 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.

Don't recall that being posted or written on the rod, but I've used Senko worms rigged wacky, 1/8 oz Beetle Spins, and up to a 1/4 oz Rat-L-Trap. Wouldn't go heavier than that, however...my taste, anyway.
