Haven't tried either of these brands but I think the ozarks could be slightly over hyped. I haven't heard anyone who's not on the pro staff sing their praises. I'm looking to buy one or two to try out. I'm really wanting to get away from b&m.

The nice thing is the tips are $13.00 as opposed to $25.00 for BnM. I've yet to break one though.

southerns are good rods I own several, but it also got a lot to do with how you'll use them I longline and tightline with mine.. I don't vertical jig or cast using them, they may work for that but there's others out there I like better for the last two types of fishing I mentioned.

I have all 14' to 12' footer, never used any shorter than that. YET>

We only fish the 14 footers from Southern Crappie Rods. I've got a building full of other brands but for tightlining, I've not used a better rod.

How's the action and tip strength on the 14's spider rigging? Thoughts?

Not on Ozarks pro staff but they are one heck of a rod. I bought four 16' ers and love them. Strong backbone and very light tip. I recommend giving them a try. Great product. Bill can hook you up.

I noticed on their website they charge sales tax to out of state buyers according to where the buyer lives. That sucks but if that's the way they want to do business then so be it. Having to pay sales tax and shipping takes away most of the low price advantage but it still may be a good pole, just not a great deal.

I'd buy another at 20% more if I had to. I don't remember paying sales tax but won't swear to it. Anyway 7% on $36 is less than $3. I don't think I'd cry too much. I like the pole and to me that's important. An older gentleman once told me that if you want good, clean oats you will have to pay a fair price.

If you want oats that have been through the horse there are a lot of bargains out there! :)

Lots of truth in that.

I think the only sales tax they charge is for N.C. residents which is by state law. I would give them a call if you are being charged, I'm sure it's probably just an error.

I have two 10's and four 12's, I use them to spider rig and love them. I am wanting to get two 14's, the main lake I fish is clear and I want to get the baits out father from the boat. Southern crappie rods are great rods.

I agree with you. They shouldn't be charging sales tax to non-residents but this is what their website says under the heading of Sales Tax.
