but I'm looking at buying another fishing rod. Would like to have one in the 7 to 8 foot length with a medium to fast tip. The boat is full of rods, don't know where I'm gonna keep another one. Any recommendations on a well made crappie rod?

An 8' ProAngler is hard to beat and the price is right also. Ed also has some tips for the 8' that make the rod 7'8" and stiffer. Either way, great rod.

Don't worry, my wife threatens me all the time about buying more rods and reels. To this point she has not delivered on one of those threats...........

The 8ft Wally Marshall Signature Series rod (tuxedo black/eva foam handle) is also an outstanding buy. Cabelas has them for $49.99. Academy has them for $59.99 but will do a price match. It is a well balanced rod with plenty of sensitivity and power. I've had mine paired with a Shimano Saros and the two have made a delightful combo. Lew's also makes a 7ft'er in the signature series but it is a one piece. Wally also has a tank of a rod in the 9ft solo series rod (the rod blank is a good bit thicker and stiffer than the signature series). I've only seen the 10ft at Academy and Cabelas and for some reason it's not nearly as rigid or responsive as the 9ft. I ordered mine online through Ebay for $46.00. Just as an FYI on the solo series rod, the reel seat is at the very bottom of the rod (fly rod style). I personally like it but everyone does not. Ken is right regarding the Pro Angler rods. I have a couple of them and they too are a very good value. Mr. Phillips stands behind his products for sure. If you're wanting something a little bit more expensive, you may take a look at the 7ft Shimano Compre (medium action). It has a fairly soft tip but it loads up in a hurry. They price out at $109.00 and in my opinion are well worth the money....hope this helps. At the end of the day it'll boil down to what feels right in your hands as we are all different in some way or another.

Great rods. I have several of the older editions but the new and improved rod I held at the CAT Extravaganza has a lot more backbone. Got to order some from Ed. I don't have to ask permission or hide it from my wife. Lucky man I guess to have a wife like her. roflmao


Keep on fishing.

Go ahead and buy it. Never say a word. It's been a long winter and you've earned it.

Oh, I'm not really that concerned about the wife. I just tell her what she tells me when I see her wearing a new dress or new shoes, "This old thing? It's been in my closet for years".
Thanks for all the recommendations guys. Don't know why I think I need another rod but I do.
Papamark, that Phoenix is starting to get pretty full.

If your looking for a slightly used 8' Pro Angler, I can give you the coordinates of where one went into Lake Nacogdoches. No charge!

I bought another one the next day if that tells you anything. Great rods.
