I'm about to pull the trigger on some rods for longlining looking to see who is the cheapest online . Any suggestions would be appreciated

Grizzly Jig. They have a discount also for 3 or more.

X2 - Grizzly Jig is the way to go. I have found them at Cabelas, but rarely. And the price wasn't any different. I happen to favor the SHSS models myself. :)

Don't necessarily need B&M's to longline, they are good rods, but not the only rods. Crappie Max at BPS are good as well, just about any light action rod will work.

I will only buy B&M Rods. B&M hands down has the best customer service there is! Mr jack has come through more than once for me.

Snagged again

PST's and BGJP's for trolling,pulling,pushing.Sam Heaton SS for single polling.....Yes Grizzly is the place to buy your B&M rods 3 and over to get the discount......There are a lot of real good reports from quite a few guys on Southern Crappie rods.....

If you're only going to be "long line trolling" jigs ... w/o heavy weights added ... the PST rods may be a bit of overkill. :dono

And the BnM Capps/Coleman trolling rods are a bit softer in the tip than a PST. (just FYI)

Look at Monks Crappie also, they have great prices on B&N poles, when I bought mine they were cheaper than grizzly jig

Something near 15 years ago I bought some B&M Bucks Ultimate 10' rods and they are not low cost compared to some, but I maybe could challenge that thought. I still have these rods and they still do the job when I want the 10' ones. I mostly use an 8' that I was lucky enough to have made and want another one very bad, but just have not pulled the trigger. The 10' Bucks Ultimate are tuff and durable and have lifted more than one crappie with them. Not sure how many rods that are low end make it 15 to 20 years?

Guess I should add I pull 1/32 Oz Roadrunners!
