I bought a couple years ago from Netcraft. Not sure if they still have them. Google Janns Netcraft.

I would not waste money on one that's my 2 cents I'm all about one solid blank. I do not even care for those 2 piece polls. I'm a big big fan of the Okuma Reflection or SST line of rods!!! Worth the 50-100$

Looking for makers of the telescopic crappie poles/rods with multiple eyelets. Whatcha got on these?i have several of the hitech shooting stars that i bought when i had a smaller boat and space was limited...they work fine for vert trolling or spider rigging.....have since bought capss/coleman BnM rods......but still use the shooting stars from time to time when i can run more rods, or if i break off and dont wanna stop to re-tie.....they will work well with a 1/2 oz of weight and a jig head or a double rig.....they arent as nkce as my BnM, but again they will work fine

Is it easy to put a spinning reel on the shooting star?

I have several of the B&M SloTroller poles in 13' and 16' they have eyes and reel seats.They are now called the Black Widow pole by B&M. I have mine set up with underspin reels and they work great the only problem with them is they are a little heavy but they are very strong. I don't use mine anymore and have thought about selling them if you are interested PM me and let me know.
