    I used to look down my nose at these rods, not any more.

    A couple of years ago I needed some long rods, I did not want to spend a fortune and tried to nite stik rods in 12 ft.

    I doubt I will ever buy another rod...I have caught 5 flatheads over 40-lbs and big fish of 55-lbs and these rods handled them with ease.

    You can get them in lengths from 7 to 12 feet.

    The longer the rod, the stronger it is, I dont know why but the 10-12fters are much more stout than the 7fters.

    Cost runs anywhere from 25 - 40 bucks depending on length.

    I love the 9' casting ones. They are really good sticks!

    These are great rods for the price. I have several, including 2 10 footers and a 9 footer and they are stout. Great rods if you're on a budget but want something that can handle a big fish. Put a Shakespeare tidewater 30 on there with some 40 lb. big game and you've got a cheap combo that will land the bigguns. :big_smile:

    I have a 9 ft mh version. It's a really good rod. Really strong. I use it with an Abu 7000 and it works great. I have 2 11' Catmaxx rods that are supposed to be here tomorrow and I am getting ready to order a couple Catfish Safari rods. I will always make room for the NiteStick though.:wink:

    I have several of them. I used to use 9 foot 2 piecers, and loved them. Now I'm always in my boat. I have several of the 7'6" I think they are. pro series. they are an awesome rod. I had a couple of the light weight regular ones and didnt like them. they felt like a crappie rod. but the pro series are awesome. the only rods i like better are surge.
