    I don't like the real long ones. I use a 5'6" ultralite uglystik. Works great and has for years.

  4. 10ft and 12ft crappie poles with simple 1/1 plastic reels for holding the line. I use these for drifting and "dipping". St. Croix light action 7ft spinning rod for casting. Love to watch those 10/12 footers start bending to the water as a crappie hits.:)

    For casting I have a 6.5' ML spinning rod. I would like to upgrade to a 7' or 7.5' ML rod with a Diawa SS spinning reel, but I don't have the cash at the moment.

  6. Garyoutlaw 77 Your question is what ever turns us on, my favorite rod is a
    10 ft. Browning steelhead rod that met with a tearjerking accident. A foot and 4 in got broke off , I put a new rod tip on it and decided to use it for crappies, just enough backbone and flex , I love it ,I also use 6 1/2 ft ugly sticks, so what ever pleases you and makes you feel comfortable use it.
    Good Luck
    GOOD FISHING GUYS :F
