Bass Pro Shops® Power Plus™ Trophy Class Spinning Rods
Tackle big fish like catfish, striper, and largemouth bass. These rods have plenty of backbone and muscle, yet without large diameters and weight. The secret is in the unidirectional fiberglass construction that eliminates the layering normally found in fiberglass rods. This process also adds flexibility, eliminating premature breakage and stress on the wrist. Features an extended EVA foam handle, for extra power and fighting leverage, that easily fits in rod holders, heavy-duty double foot aluminum oxide guides, hook keeper for pre-rigging and sensitive graphite reel seat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassmacker Very decent rod! bought the 6'6 Medium Heavy a while back for fishing in the Florida Back Country waters and it held up really nicely my first trip when I caught an 8 pound Bluefin Tuna in the deep water and a 10 pound Gag Grouper. I also ended up catching a lot of pan fish, and was very surprised on how sensitive it was for a fiberglass rod this heavy. I also use it for Catfishing back in Texas, haven't landed any substantially sized cats or carp, but this is definitely a great rod for the price! May 25, 2008
Rated 1 out of 5 by BassManNewMexico HORRIBLE ROD This rod was the worst rod I've ever used. The rod broke while fighting a little 10lber. Pay an extra $40 and get the Ugly Stik Catfish Rod April 10, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by fishinman20 heavy fishing i bought the seven and a half foot rod and use it for catfish and carp, but also use it for muskie and other big fish. this rod has never failed and is also great for my traveling. it brakes apart into two pieces easily and is put back together in seconds. overall a great rod for heavy fishing.

A:I would say a Ugly Stik regular or Ugly Stik Lite, in about 5 1/2 ft. They are very reasonably priced and you can't kill them.
Best idea would be to go to a Bass Pro store and feel them. You don't want to over-rod a youngster, but with this type rod they will be able to use it for a good while as they grow.
Details:Would you be able to use this rod for mukie, both casting and trolling.
A:Yes, but you may find the butt grip to be too short and therefore not provide enough support under your elbow.
