Uncle Buck's Deluxe Crappie Pole
This product is durable and light weight the only drawback is the three eyelets. Four eyelets would make this product perfect for panfishing.
The lack of a forth eyelet allows the line to stick to the rod particularly in the rain, this makes it difficult to tightline fish with jigs.

Works for surf fishing
While not it's intended design, it works quite well surf fishing, casts well, good action, shows a strike nicely, a little soft on hook set but it can be done. Broke about 8" off the tip, replaced it and actually casts a bit better.

I have 4 of these rods now. One in each length . I use them for bottom bouncing and straight lining and drift/trolling light jigs. I love these rods although I wish they had just an ever so slightly faster tip. When it's windy they will bounce a little crazy . They aren't so bad that they can't be used though. The only true defect to these rods is that the eyes might come unglued on you at some point. I carry 5 min. quick dry epoxy and tooth picks at all times in my plastic 3700 series utility box marked terminal tackle . So when it happened to me it was a quick fix . Other than this defect these rods are the most easy to transport from one crappie hole to the next rods with reels out there. Try one and you are sure to like them too..

I bought four of these rods for crappie fishing, 2 twelve and 2 sixteen foot. The sixteen foot takes a little getting use to, but works well. I like the reel seats on these rods an work well with Uncle Buck's crappie reels.I bought these rods to go along with my other rods for trolling for crappie. I have a 13' gheenoe that is set up for trolling 15 rods at the same time. It makes quite a sight going across a lake. It kind of looks like a big caterpillar. It take 2 people to handle the rods when you get 8 to 10 fish on at once , but a lot of fun.
