Looks to be a high quality rod and certainly not your run-of-the-mill crappie rod. You've got my interest.

I got to fish with these rods on a photo shoot back in June, and all I can say is that it is the best rod I've ever fished with, hands down. I've been fortunate enough to fish a lot of the western hemishphere, and G-Rods are the best I've found. I got to test the six, seven, and ten foot version, and they all perfomed perfectly. The load of the rod, the low weight, and the sensitivity were astounding. Bridges, boat docks and brush piles...it didn't matter. I've never put my name with a rod company until now, and I can't speak highly enough. In fact, I already got a 6 footer on the way.

Hmm, for a rod in that price range, the warranty doesn't look that great.

No cork handle? Tangle free tip sounds interesting.

Sure would like to fish with a 10 footer and if it's all that I would make the switch.

I've been fishing them for months now cheers
They are by far the lightest, most sensitive rods with plenty of backbone that I have ever put my hands on.
Belinda will have most of the split handle rods and some of the longer rear handle rods in stock in a couple of more days!
They are already on her website, just have not enabled the links till we pick up her shipment.
Still attempting to nail down shipping to keep the costs down, but if anyone would like to put 1 in their hands, stop by her shop, just let me know ahead of time thumb

Yep, having lunch with the owner Glen tomorrow, knew I couldn't help myself... Him living in Plano is definitely the nail in the coffin...
