Has anyone had any hands-on experience with these puppies yet?

I hope to hear positives as I just ordered (2) 12' and (2) 14'

Hopefully their "great blend of strength and tip action" will keep the tip breakage to a minimum.

I got them today, don't know how they fish yet but the craftsmanship is outstanding. I gave them my ole "how sensitive are you test" with excellent results. I do that by having my wife drop a paper clip from about 3" on the very tip. I thought it broke my arm for a minute.....

Well if I get the rest of my parts for my "toon" by early next week, a week from tomorrow may be it's maiden voyage.

The BnM poles are good but one word of warning don't load them up. What I mean is try to pick up a large fish ( crappie,bass) cause if you do the tip will not take it.

I fished with a guy this weeekend who uses that rod. He absolutely loves them.
They are strong and sensative according to him and he fishes every week in competition.

Had opportunity to try these rods on some 2 to 3 lb Crappie over the weekend and was amazed on how good they are. We used both 12 & 14 ft, I ordered 4 -12 footers this morning. These poles have some back bone.

We have used regular B n M poles in the past and had problems with breakage and they were only being used on 1 to 1.5 lb fish.
