Anyone ever use a Shakesphere crappie pole. I see they make a 9 foot and a !0 foot. They are blue and it says there are made of IM-6 graphite.

I use them and love them. Light weight, sensitive and durable. Best for hand fishing not so good for trolling.

Our local tackle shop sold 100 of them last year and 63 came back broken, maybe good for bream?

I have 2 10' and 3-12 footers. I like them. They are a bit soft, 1/2 oz weight and the tips are touching the water with 5 degree rod holders set up 18" from floor. I have caught 5#grinnel, bowfin or black fish and WOW was that cool. They did fine.
