Perfect Crappie rod
June 23, 2019
This might be the perfect all around Crappie rod. Well balanced and very sensitive. I have used it with a slip float and could feel the hits. It is my go to panfish rod and I have caught a lot of smallmouth bass also.

Pros1.. super sensitive 2.. very well balanced 3.. super light in weight 4.. just a beautiful rod (fit and finish are perfect).

Would the Shimano Stella 1000 FJ be a good pair with the 5’6” UL fast rod? I’d be mostly bank fishing into a creek. Would the UL be to whippie for crappie or should I go with a lite rod? Thanks
1 Answer
Hello Jeff, 

The Stella 1000FJ would pair well with this rod. The rod will definitely have a super soft power but for what you will be doing, will fair well and be a super fun time when reeling in those (hopefully) big Crappie! 

Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!

Other than a difference in 3 inches how does the 6'-9" light model differ from the 7'-0" light model? I see the 7' model says extra fast where the 6'-9" shows fast action. When you you want one or the other?
1 Answer
The action, recommended line weight, and lure weight are the only differences other than size.
