The Shakespeare Crappie Hunter Spinning Rod features a 9' length with a light action, perfect for crappie and panfish. The moderate action soaks up heavy bites protecting light lines. The comfortable eva foam grips matched with the lightweight IM6 blank makes for an easy to fish rod for those all day excursions. The low-profile stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts reduce line wear.
Additional features of these rods include:
The front grip on this rod measures 7 1/2" and the rear grip measures 8 1/2". The overall length is 20 1/2" including the reel seat.
talk about long casting , take this rod for it
Like this rod as I have some other Shakespeare rods and have performed well for the money spent. This looks like a nice rod to use for crappies feels good.
