    Does anyone have any experience with them? I am trying to decide between the 7'6" A.S. Nite Stick Pro or the Jim Moyer "Boss" rod in MH. I mainly bank fish with 2-4 oz. sinkers for flatheads. Who likes what and why?

    I have heard the Boss Rod is a mighty fine rod, it's made out of EGLASS....I do believe the american spirit is a graphite rod, which I personally dont like for flatheads..I have owned one american spirit rod, and found it lacking in quality...Now I do have a ugly stick tiger rod in m/h action, and I highly reccomend it for flatheads.

    Moyer rods are legendary. I mean try to find an ECAT on Ebay, you wont find it. I have tried 100 times. The Boss will be the same way, When they stop making it, people who dont have one will be trying to get one. Get a moyer rod, you could literally reel in a whale with one. One thing with the Moyer rod though, it has stainless steel guides, which dont work as good with braided line.

    The nite stick pro's are a great rod.I have a friend that has 2 of the 10' pro's and he loves them.I have the red/white 9' and its great.I've had it over 6 years and its never let me down.IMO,the difference between the pro and the regular is the pro has a cork handle and different color.I don't think you can go wrong with any of their rods.

    I have a 9 foot nite stick pro. Just had it a few months but have not caught anything on it to give a report. But, the rod seems to be made pretty good and it looks good.

    Flathunter, it is true that American Premier makes the nite sticks out of graphite composite, but they are beginning to make newer series of rods out of E-Glass. You must have gotten a bad rod or something, because I cant see any way for an AP rod to be bad.

    Hey there. I have recently been thinking about purchasing one of these rods. I like the way they look. I bought an ol whiskers catfish rod last summer after breaking my old shimano rod. I have a 9ft which i dont like to use much and bought a one pice 7ft rod that i hate to carry with me. The ol whisker while a "pretty rod" is not stout enough and doesnt cast well. So I have been looking for a replacement. Any input on these rods will be great. Thanks.

    I have a 9ft ap nitestick spinning rod and have used it quite a bit for the last 7 or 8 years, and it is still in great shape. I like the looks of the nite stick pro also, reminds me of my berkley reflex rods.

    Oh yeah, the only thing I don't like about the boss, and the reason I haven't got one yet, I mainly fish at nite and can't stand a black rod. I could just put some reflective tape on it but for some strange reason I just can't bring myself to buy one :confused2:

    I got a 7'6" Nite Stick Pro casting rod this year and have loved it. Its a well made strudy rod that I have confidence in with fighting the biggest fish. I too looked at the Moyer Boss rods when deciding what to get so I decided I would eventually get both!:big_smile:
