HEY Y'all!

I noticed that PRO ANGLER rods have gone up like 20 bucks from when I used to buy them--- now that they are pricing up there with the Whisker Seeker rods, is it still worth getting them?


I find that I am not able to cast very far with my 10 foot PA (spinning) and was gonna try the Whisker Seekers out- What are y'alls thoughts now that they are priced very similar?



THANKS!!!

Going to a shorter rod won’t increase casting distance. I’d suggest looking over a coastal tackle shop that specializes in distance casting.

A lot of variables go into casting distance. The reel is the #1 factor. The bait size, rig size and length, are all major factors, not just the rod length.

Casting distance was not factored into my decision making when I chose my catfish rods so my opinion is worth about 2cents but I do own 9 of the whisker seekers. Guys that run PA will tell you they are their favorite. Guys that run WS will tell you they like WS the best. One is E glass and the other is S glass composite tip. 2 completely different rods so personal preference is the true deciding factor. I love my WS 7’6 “ MH. I still have some of the gen 1 from 4 yrs ago that are still going strong. Now that WS offers the FMJ they are easily my favorite rod. They work great in the summer on 2 lbrs and even better in the winter on 50s. They have the smoothest pulling tip I’ve fished with which makes a huge difference on eye strain when drifting. texas


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

[align:left][/align]I own both rods and the seeker warranty is wonderful. I do own eight pro angler rods and never broke one so no warranty is better than not needing one. The seeker I broke was in my garage door and I must take the blame but seeker did replace the rod. So even me being dumb was covered by the whisker seeker rods. So I guess it would be a choice of which one you like the action of the most. I think they are both fine rods . Most of the guides I know seem to go with pro Angler rods but chad uses his seekers. I would say you will be happy with either.

Interested as well, I have 7 pro angler rods and 5 cheap bass pro rods, I’m about to replace the cheap bass pro rods, I’d like to get 4 of the ws 9’6 rods and one more pro angler 7’6. I hate to dump $400 into ws and not like them.. I’d buy a pro angler if they made a 9’6 but they don’t so I’m looking other places.. does anyone know if the ws rods will fit in a bee ready rod holder? I’ve ran into some rods I like but won’t fit so I had to pass..
