    Default Bnm Pro Staff Trolling Rods

    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.
    If you don't get hung every-once-n-a-while you ain't jigg'n it right..:D

    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.

    Default B n M Trollling Rods

    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.

    Great! That's exactly what I wanted to hear!
    Thanks
