Uncle Buck's Crappie Casting Rod
Great With Zebco Bill Dance Crappie Reel
This rod is great with the Zebco Bill Dance Crappie Reel, with the 10lb Camo Test line. The 4'6" model is great for casting under trees or heavy structure. Throw two 1/16 oz. lead sinkers, a Bass Pro Shops Balsa Pencil Bobber, and a cricket on a #3/0 Eagle claw hook.

I will say for the price it is a very good rod. Has good back bone and casting.

Outstanding sensitivity, good backbone. When coupled with the UB35, its an excellent panfishing set up. With more power than a true ultralight, it handles the unexpected larger bass or catfish with no problems. Great rod at an affordable price, I have 6!

Tough and Sensitive
I bought this rod for my wife. In the past she had trouble felling bites with an Ugly Stick. She has also broken other high dollar rods in the past. I bought this rod on sale and couldn't be happier. The bluegill bite was light on a recent trip to Arkansas, and she consistently pulled more fish into the boat than the rest of us. When I asked her how, she said she had a better feel with this rod. This is a comparison to her Ugly Stick, an Abu Garcia Vendetta(which she broke), and my Falcon Low Rider XG. She also hooked some small bass and had no problems getting them to the boat. This rod has great sensitivity and enough backbone for most general fishing.
