Just a comment
I was looking for a trout trolling rod online while in Myrtle Beach and bypassed this one because it says it is a 1-piece rod and I needed a 2-piece to fit in the car for the trip home. Stopped by the local outlet and to my surprise ended up with a 1029 because it is a 2-piece rod and NOT a 1-piece as stated in the online description. Can't wait to use it!

Great for Alabama Rig
I have a Model 1029 purchased in the 90's for striper fishing, the rod has not been used for 10 years. When the Alabama Rig got hot this fall I got my old 8'6" model 1029 out of storage and installed a good BaitCasting reel with 80# braided line. First trip with the Alabama Rig and my old rod was a success with over 30 Bass up to 5# and over 40 Hybride Stripe up to 3#. Still catching them on this old rod with several trips resulting much the same as the first test of the A-Rig and the Model 1029. The cold wind may slow down the bite this week with only 8 bass up to 5# but I will keep using my Bass Pro Power Plus Model 1029...Going to BPS tomorrow to buy another for swimbaits.
Give it a try, you will be surprised at how well it handles the Alabama Rig.

best rod for the money
I have 8 of these rods. i use them for fishing for salmon in the fall at lake Ontario and they perform better than any other rod i have used. I also use them to fish for trout in the spring and they are light enough to give a good fight for brownies and heavy enough to handle king's in the fall without any problem
I would recommend these to anyone without hesitation. you cannot find a better rod for the money.
I caught a 32lb king on this rod using 12lb test line and the rod handled it without a problem. can't say enough about the rod it is as good as you can find.
