Trolling Rod Has enough strength for trolling for kokanee and trout with plenty of rod action to watch the crank bait wiggle the rod tip. The tip is lighter color which helps. The rod at 14 feet can be a little awkward to bring fish in but it keeps me out of the other lines. August 13, 2012
Really fill a much needed niche for crappie These rods will outperform every rod out their for what they are meant to do . I have 8 of them but only usually use 6 at a time when trolling cranks by myself, 3 off each side . When I have a fishing partner I still use only 6 but will throw in two 7'6" med cranking rods to the mix also . I also use them when it's windy for bottom bouncing over lighter rods to help reduce all the crazy bouncing that goes with windy days . They also handle 4-6 oz. weights for those days you want to troll cranks behind heavy weights . I would give these rods a 5 star rating except the eyes are a little flimsy so they get a 4 even though I havn't broke any yet .These rods have really made me a much better crappie hunter than I ever thought I could be . If you are serious about crappie fishing then you will want at least two 12'ers and at least one of each of the rest . July 3, 2011

A: 
I have 8 of these rods . I have used both types of reels on mine so I would question whether or not the previous answer is thinking about these particular rods . Probably a mistake. Anyway these rods aren't really meant for casting anyway . They are meant for crappie trolling techniques and also can be used for still verticle crappie offerings . Although I would like to say that on Basspro's Outdoorsite Library I saw a video where Wally Marshall talked about these rods and suggested that the 12' rods make good catfish rods also . So like the good little starstruck flunky that I am you just know I had to give it a try and what do you know he was right . I never use more than 3oz. weights on them but even with 1oz.sinkers on it , it will cast a mile and half . I would not expect that these rods will cast any type of crappie rig or lures worth a darn. They are just too heavy a action to cast these light offerings very well at all. Look for ultra-light to light action for crappie casting chores. A seven foot ultralight will outcast anything out there at casting tiny crappie lures. I would suggest a BassPro Crappie Maxx Mighty light 7' or a BassPro Crappie Maxx Signature Series Spinning Crappie Rods 7'. You will be much happier I promise you. Oh also the answer to the question about the eyes turning around to the bottom would be no. These eyes are aligned in the standard fashion. Hope that helps you out in some way.

A: 
No.. the reel seats must be made larger so as the seats of the reel can fit into the rod seats on both casting and spinning reels..
