Questions & Answers for Bass Pro Shops Bass Pro Shops® Crappie Maxx® Signature Series CXS Universal Crappie Rods

Question

Can this pole also be used for tightline and long line trolling?

With the economy I need to find something that I can use to jig and troll with. Is this rod capable of doing both?

answer 1
I haven't trolled with this rod yet, but used a 1/2 oz. sinker and 2 1/8 oz jigs for spider rigging and it handled them with ease. This rod has a soft tip , with plenty of backbone.
I'm sure it would troll small cranks very well. Keep in mind, it's a 'pandish' rod.
Good luck..

Yes. This rod should be ample for doing both presentations for what you are looking for.
