B'n'M Black Widow Crappie Rod
20 ft of fish whooping fun
Bought this pole for them lazy summer days when I didn't want to be casting all the time. I just walk along the bank letting the jig swim along and jig it in fishy looking spots. Brings back memories of years gone by.
For a fiberglass pole it is suprisenly sensitive and will handle good size fish. Smaller folks might want to consider the shorter lengths as the 20 ft. does get a little heavy after awhile.
All in all a good entry level pole.

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.

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!

excellent lunge whip for horses!
The 10' poles make great lunge whips and so economical! Just attach 10' of 3mm cord of nylon or leather. Can't say how they are for fishing but they are light weight and strong and don't cost an arm and a leg. If a horse steps on one and they break, I don't cry like when a German made $150 whip breaks!
