I just saw these rods listed at BNM at 28' and 29' in 2 sections. It seems like these are listed for heavy weight trolling? Im wondering how heavy they are, and how they would be for dipping?

Dang, I thought you made a typo. I want one just to play with.

I have a telescopic, not sure of the length either 18 or 28 but its heavy and unwielding. I was guessing that these would be lighter not being over an inch in diam. I like weird stuff:D.

I think that's alittle typing error.Looks like they have a 8 footer 2 piece and a 9 foot 2 piece.They talk about vertical jigging in tight pieces.Could you imagine trying to store a 2 piece 28 footer.WOW lol PJ.

That makes a lot more sense!

Man I sure would hate to find a spot for a 2 piece rod that is still 14ft and 14 1/2 ft after being broken down. I have seen him fishing. And most of his rods are way shorter then that. LOL

I entered one in cart to see the item number, it ends in 082, which wold normally mean 8' 2 piece. So i guess its a typo.

I have fished with the Gants and I can assure they don't have 28ft poles in the boat. Eight footer would be about right with the way they side pull.

BnM Pro Staffs are now available in 18 and 20 ft models. I have not ordered any yet. I will; however. I will fish the 18 and 20 from the back of the Triton. Mrs Monk will not use the longer poles. She has a problem with the 16 footers.

I emailed Jack Wells of BnM Poles about this. He confirmed that it is a typo, and the poles are actually 8' and 9'.

The new Roger Gant rod is a 8 ft side pulling rod Jack owner of BnM just brought one in here to Grizzly Jig to show off the new line. After fishing against Roger and seeing him win several tournaments across the country he has proven to be one of if not the best side pullers in the country. And the rod will be a perfect when it comes to pulling jigs you can bet in that!!
