    Default Crappie Rods

    I'm not trying to start a big stink, but I was simply wondering if there are any crappie rods manufactured in the U.S.?

    but you'll PAY for them :p (well, most of them, anyway :D ) OK ... some may not be "specifically" built for Crappie but, that's no sign that they can't be adapted to that use.

    These brands all say their rods are "American Made" :

    St Croix
    Grandt
    American Rodsmith's
    Seeker
    Stiffy
    RaZr
    Allpro Rods
    Orvis
    Setyr Rods
    Falcon Rods
    Kistler
    Shakespeare/Ugly Stick

    ... cp

    Allpro is made about fifteen minutes down the road from me. Owner is Roger Gant . The guy to talk to is Billy Campbell. Billy used to run The Outdoor Shop years ago and when he sold it, he got to do what he loves and fishes almost everyday. They are a little pricey for me, but lots of the Bass fisherman around here brag and brag on them. They are becoming a very popular brand in Middle Tennessee. www.allprorods.com

    Cherokee Rod Co. Made in Eufaula OK. by Leland Shanks. He was making them for Crappie Pro. Lot of backbone to haul biguns outa the trees & brush but, VERY light. Not cheap but, EXCELLENT RODS!!! <*)}}}><

    St. Croix and Orvis are making their cheaper rods overseas, now. That may just be their fly rods, though.
    I cheated in a crappie tournament and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.

    They may be assembled or wrapped in the US, but are there any blanks that are american made?

    Dorber makes their own, and they're in Arkansas. Not sure if they make crappie rods, though.

    www.dorber.com



    All the top fly rod manufacturers make their own blanks here, but they are not cheap!

    Default American made rods

    Thanks guys!! I was afraid that all the rods were outsourced. I'm really glad they aren't, and I will strive to only purchase American made rods. Thanks again, and goog fishing to you all.:D
