After doing a search, I could not come up with any recent comments on these rods. I am interested on opinions for vertical jigging and spider rigging with these rods. I am wanting a good 10' rod, with a moderate backbone, for vertical jigging. For spider rigging, I am looking for the same in a 12' rod. I am new to both technics and looking for good equipment to get started with. I have been looking at other brands just comparing my options:fish

I can't comment on those rods, but I can weigh in on your spider rigging length. I started out with 12' rods and quickly moved up to longer lengths. I'd stay at 14' or above.

I bought a pro angler 10 foot rod last year for trolling crank baits. No problems so far, I recommend them and bought a second one early this year. I use them with planer boards too, but I have never spider rigged with them.

I concur ... I started "spider rigging" with 10' rods, and ended up buying 14' rods (BnM PST & Capps/Coleman).

If I did a lot of "vertical jigging", I'd use my 10' rods (Huckabee Dippin & Sam Heaton) with the Dippin rod being the 1st choice.

The BnM Capps/Coleman 14' rods are a little softer in the tip than my PST (which I was told the C/C rod translates a soft bite a little better) ... but, since I mostly "push" jigs with them, I haven't had the opportunity to put that theory to the test. Although, I have noticed that the Capps/Coleman rods do tend to "bounce/bend" more when the boat is rocked by waves.

14 ft Southern Crappie rods for spider rigging and he also has some really nice single poling rods in different lengths.

I have lots of pro angler rods, for single poling they are my favorite.
