    You can obviously catch crappie on about any pole. When it comes to fun I would stay in the UL - ML range. ML is the stiffest I would go. I fish crappie with a 7' ML Fast action premier and love it for crappie.

    I currently have a 6'6" M/F spinning rod with 8 pound mono line on it, and I could put 6 pound on it if needed. But I was thinking of buying a new one to set up just for crappie so I keep my bass rig as is. Also was thinking longer is better for some reason, so I am looking at a 7' rod, and either a M/F or ML/F power and action. Specifically, the Shimano Convergence rods, paired with a Pflueger Trion Tri30x or Tri25x reel.
    That's what I use. Ita worked fine for me. I know for jigging they recommend a long rod, but for what I do a 6'6 medium has worked for me. I do want an ultralight to make it more of a challenge and all that. But from my LIMITED experience your setup is identical to mine and it works just fine for how I fish for crappie.
