Uncle Buck's Deluxe Crappie Pole
Compact, powerful, and well made
Excellent rod. Easy to use. well made. i've caught numerous crappie, a couple of 3lb bass and even a hefty turtle. the rod handle all with ease. highly recommend for anybody of all ages. so compact i keep in my truck at all times. never know when that fishing fever will hit.

i have been a "old school" cane pole user for several seasons now and i decided to up grade to the 20th century and purchase this pole... and im so0o glad i did!
i love the line guides and reel seat it will accept any reel you want to put on, extremely light weight and balances perfect...can hold at extreme end of pole behind reel and is literaly effortless. and you want to talk about backbone, this baby has plenty but is sensitive enough to feel every submurged stump and stick! i use 6lb fireline crystal on mine with an uncle bucks crappie reel. now i can use my old bamboo poles as great wall hangers...
and the built in ruler is quite handy if your waters has slot limits on papermouths

worst purchase ever
This 16 foot pole gets to the outer edge of weed lines ok BUT... the weight of the pole is much too heavy.. I had to tuck the butt of the pole under my arm and hold it with my hand also... Therefore I could not feel any nibbles or soft bites at all... After holding this pole for about 15 minutes my arm and wrist were so worn out I had to quit fishing... I think the idea of this pole is really great but, It needs to be much, much lighter, I mean a whole lot lighter.. I can't see how a child could fish with it..
All in all... this pole is not fun to fish with....
SORRY UNCLE BUCK, BUT I CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS POLE TO ANY-ONE THE WAY IT IS...

best pole ever!!!
i bought 2 of the 10 footers at the nashville store back in the winter. i mainly only fish for crappie on kentucky lake. they are as tough as nails!!! i hung a 12 lb blue cat spider rigging and was able to land it no problems. now before you buy these dont get the idea that you can cast these, that aint what they are for. it is a fiberglass cane pole. but if you understand that before you buy these then you will truely be very satisfied with them. i got plans to go back and get more. being able to retrack them and get them out of the way makes these the best choice, even better than the ones ones that cost 4 times as much. best of luck, and GOD bless!!
