    I don't have a special rod for Brim,I just use my Crappie rods with the 8 ft Wally Marshall Pro rod probably being my Brim catching favorite.Great post CP....I also treat all my rods(and other equipment for that matter)like they cost a fortune,and take care of them.

    6.5 Ugly Stick Lite with 4 lb test line works well for me.

    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. John 15:7 Jesus says..." ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

    When using a casting presentation, I would use a 4.5' to 7' rod. The shorter rods in tight places and the longer ones when it's more of an open area. Richard Williams Crappie Wizard rod (CW75) in the 7.5' version. BnM also has 6.5' Buck's Graphite Spinning Rod (SP65G). For the shorter rods BnM's SharpShooter and Buck's Graphite Spin Casting and Spinning rods come in 4.5' to 5.5' lengths. I have found that many ultralight rods just don't have enough backbone to get a good hookset. I like to really stay connected to my bait not only for the hookset but also to feel the slightest of bites. I think you'll find that all the BnM rods will have just the right amount of backbone. The longer rods are 2 piece, so if by chance you do break a tip you can get a replacement tip section for a fraction of the cost of buying a whole new rod. Hope this helps.
