Uncle Buck's Deluxe Crappie Pole
I purchased Uncle Buck poles for trolling. The small section is much to limber to support weights and jigs for trolling so I break it and remove it through the handle. It only shortens the pole by about 2 1/2' and they work well at that length and will support the trolling rig. If weight get hung the pole will break at the reel seat. I have lost two. With that said I think still they work better than any other poles I have found for trolling. Not great but work well and reasonably priced. I recommend them to friends.

great for tight line trolling
I've used these rods on the front of my boat for over 5 years one on each side 14 foot long. I use shorter rods (4) on the rear of the boat for tight line trolling Lake Wiss AL. several lakes in Ga. and Tenn. They give me greater fan coverage in a 24ft. sweep be hind the boat and have enought back bone to reel (2) keeper crappie in at the same time more than once.It is easy to pack up at the end of the day.They do not cast all that great but what i use them for they do just find.Feed a little line out as you troll.

Better than expected
I spend most of my time Crappie fishing in flats with live bait. Sometimes I'm searching for fish and sometimes I'm catching fish. With these poles, I can quickly lay out eight poles on my holders, but when the fish turn on and eight poles are not manageable, I can quickly fold up a few and get them out of my way. No more long rods laying in the floor to trip on and get tangled up. These poles are tough too! I've brought in 7lb Largemouth with these, and 6lb mono will break before the pole will.

The uncle bucks crappie pole is amazing. Its not like normal crappie poles it doesn't cost near as much as most big name brand poles and the durability of it is wonderful, I caught big crappie and bass left and right off of it and with most crappie poles they break while retrieving a big fish such as a fighting bass and I completely lifted it out of the water. Another thing about it is it's portible nomatter what your driving it ould fit in the car/house with ease I love mine
