Ok as a follow up to my crappie reel question.

When vertcial jigging what rod length do most of yall prefer? Also how many peices do these rods usually break down into? Being a bass fisherman the idea of using multi peice rods sends shivers down my spine! :shock:

I like 11' & yes it's a two piece.

I've never had a problem with the joint...

I used Craphac's Sam Heaton BnM rods during the last tourney & I'm still a fan of the Bucks BnM's....

Sam Heaton 102 S/S — 10’ two piece jig pole seems to have more sensitivity than my 11’ . Also use 10# test line — tied with loop knot on jig .

I have two 11'-ish rods, and two 10' all-stars. The 10 footers are extremely sensitive and super light, but I have to grab the line to swing a fish in the boat, while the 11 footers have the backbone to horse a big crappie out of a brush pile and sling it on board.

Really I use them both at different times.
