View Full Version : What rods for riggin ?

03-09-2015, 08:48 PM
I had my mind made up but I like soliciting advice from the masses, and there seems to be a few fellers on here with experience. I'm about to buy a whole new riggin set up.
I was gonna buy 16ft BnM pro staff trolling rods. I already have 4 (12's) and have been very pleased with the durability.
(You know when you look up and notice your snagged and your rod is already doubled over and looks to be past it's breaking point. ) Haven't broken one yet despite several instances where i gave them every opportunity.
Anyhow I've been hearing about these southern crappie rods and upon research learned they're partly built with Kevlar ? Sounds tough.
What rods are yall runnin and do you love em ? Tell me why.

We use eight grizzly jig co 12' and though they are a little heavier than some they are easy on the pocketbook and we have had zero issues.

Southern Crappie in 14. Got PST's in 12. Like the Southern's better. Much more sensitive and still plenty of backbone.

Pro Angler 14 & 16' trolling rods! Very light, amazing back bone. Tourney partner had two crappie over 3# on at one time and the rod loaded up and had no issues. Give em a try you won't be disappointed!

Caps & Coleman's 12 and 14s. If I ever find the need to change, I am going to Southern Crappie.
