    Pass the "Sportsman Baton" on before you're gone, promote values for others to hunt and fish upon.

    If I had a set of them, I wouldn't need any spare tips.

    BRM said it best......
    Like I’ve said many times, BnM DESERVES our business. They always help when asked. They’ve invested tons of money and equipment over their many years in business to every organization out there that promotes the sport of crappie fishing. Kudos to Jack Wells and BnM Poles. In my opinion, The Best In The Business.

    Don't take me wrong. Not trying to say that they are not one of the best crappie pole manufacturers cause I believe they are. Just saying I've got more than my fair share of poles in the corner with broken tips.

    Are those rods with broken tips "old" rods ?? By that I mean several (5+) years old. BnM did have a period of time where they got a shipment of rods that were damaged in transport or mfg'd with flaws ... and there were several complaints about "weak tips" and breakage of the tips. Oddly enough, most seem to have broken in the same area of the blank, hence the idea that they could have been damaged in shipment or mfg'd with flaws (bad machining or substandard materials). It's been a few years, but best I can remember .... those that contacted Jack Wells directly & explained their dilemma, were sent new tips.

    Now, user error can also cause damage to the tips : tips banging on the edge of something during transport, and holding the rod straight up with a heavy fish dangling on the line are two of the more common causes. (but I'm guilty of both with my 14' PST, and it hasn't failed/broken on me, yet.) In fact, here's a picture of me holding a 2lb Crappie on the PST with the rod almost straight up and my thumb against the line (trying to keep the fish from swinging around long enough to get the picture taken). The rod tip is bearing the whole load of the fish's weight.

    I stopped doing that when I read about others having tips break on them, and I wouldn't even consider doing it with the BGJP or even the Capps/Coleman series rods. Their tips are not as stout as the PST's tips.

    ... yeah, you go ahead & test that theory on your 16' Southern Crappie rod & I'll be right here

    (I doubt that rod is graphite or kevlar ... most likely heavy fiberglass ... and it has to be at least 25ft long)

    My guess was 100% graphite and very expensive. I was right.

    Hurry -- only one left!
