Can't go wrong with Wally Marshell Signature Series. I have 3 of the 5`4 dock rods and have caught big Bass, Catfish, and lots of Crappie in the 2-3 Lb. range

berkley amp or lightin rod 6'6" or 7' is what i use you can buy more expensive but not better for our way of fishing

What is your price range? If you want an excellent 7 footer for general, all-around use, you'd be hard pressed to find one better than B n' M's Sam's SuperSensitive series. JMO.

I have a couple of 8' Bnm bucks graphite jig pole. I like em for deep vertical jigging and they do great for casting floats. The extra length makes the float a bit easier to deal with. Not real expensive. Another good one is the Shakespeare Micro Graphite in 7' light action. Under #20 at wal mart.

I went from an ugly stick to a daiwa Aird this year. The Daiwa is a great rod. Very light and sensitive. The majority of my fishing is done under a casting bobber with artificials.

I have the Eagle Claw Powerlite series, 6'6" in both Light and Medium Light. Fast tip, but with plenty of backbone for crappie, bass and northern pike (yes, even the Light...it's landed more pike than all my other rods combined). The rod color is yellow. I like it because it very easy to see strikes, but some people don't like a yellow rod. I use them for trolling, casting and slip-bobbering.

I currently use a fenwick elite tech 6'8" ultra light. Its been alot of fun to fish with and I still feel like I can maintain some control of the fish.
