    Wink Crappie Combo.Pole

    Hello Sam1, I bought three of the cad. crappie combo from bass pro shop last christmas. Two for gifts and one for myself. I realy do enjoy using the pole, It is nice. The reel works well and the handle locks in place once you have the right amount of line out. I like the line running up the center of the pole. One problem tho, If you lose all the line off the reel it is a real pain to get new line back down the center of the pole. they give you some fine wire to do this with, but take a nerve pill before you start. The way to do it is to tie new line onto a piece of old line before you lose it all off the reel and pull it through the pole and you got it made, Otherwise it is a pain. Hope this helps. Good Fishing! Jimmy S.

    I have one but it seems like the reel part would be a pain to get in and out of a rod holder. Otherwise I really like the pole. I mainy use mine for fishing minnows with a float around shallow stumps in the spring never put it in a rod holder.
    Ya ain't holdin' your mouth right.

    Default Cussed it.....

    I got one 6-7 years ago for Christmas. Used it twice (first time and the last time). It is now a garage ornament. Another good idea that sucked. Who needs the hastle of threading a line thru a pole with a wire through a little hole in a rocking boat? haha...Anyone who wants one, I have one for the rite price...Come get it.....................

    I have used similar poles and another problem can be the tip breaking off. But, they are cost effective and I use mine quite a bit.
