Use these rods for pulling crankbaits, jigs or live bait in open, clear water. The additional length will keep you far enough away from the crappie to prevent shadowing or spooking. As with the rest of this series, these rods feature an upward reel seat on the 21 inch EVA handle to allow ease of use with any rodholder. They have a lot of backbone for the most aggressive trolling depth at any speed. 100% graphite.
