Rated 5 out of 5 by TerryB Great rod! Fun to fish with, and tough as can be. Slap a GOOD spincast reel on this baby, and start throwing a 1/8 oz Beetle Spin, a 1/4 oz Rat-L-Trap, or a Senko worm rigged wacky. Doesn't get much better. Caught this one at Toledo bend 4/26/2011. May 24, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by TroutMman Versatile and Fun Very nice rod. It was purchased with the intention of trout fishing on larger streams and rivers. 1st fish was a 21" steelhead. Wow what fun and plenty of backbone. In addition can still feel the action well. Quite satisfied May 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ilivetofish Awesome Product Bought this Rod for crappie but as luck would have it only caught Bass. But it handled several 3-4 lb.fish. If it could get these fish in the boat, I'm sure it can handle a slab when they do eventually decide to bite. Great rod in my book. February 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by coolcat Wow These rods rule at casting crappie lures in the 1/64 - 1/8 range. There are some lighter,more expensive rods and but I really don't recommend them because to get lighter rods they used either higher modulus graphite or just made the blank thinner . Either case you can break them easily just by nicking them and putting pressure on them . Not to say that the same thing can't happen to these rods because it can. So be sure to recognize that to get long use of any ultralights you will have to be very aware of where they are at all times. The 7' rods really cast the small stuff so good because BassPro really got the action just right to maxamize your effort . I have 2 of the old 7's and 2 of the old 8's and one 7'er of this new one and they are for all I can tell identicle except the color . The only thing I would like to see is for BassPro to offer the 7' rod with spinning eyes then it would be perfect. I will not complain though seeing as how it is the best casting rod out there. For serious crappie guys all I can tell you is if you don't have 7'er than get one as soon as you can. You won't be sorry. January 26, 2011

Details:I bought the 8' UL crappie maxx rod and I have it paired with the crappie maxx spinning reel with 10# mono/braid hybrid line. I was wondering if there is a better reel or line to put on the reel as it seems that my cast distance is very short. I have a different 6' UL rod and reel combo that can cast twice as far with the same type of jig. There seems to be excess friction with the amount of eyelets, but on average, I can cast around 30-40' with this combination. Any tips for a better combo to increase casting distance?
