    Sometimes there is a fine line between innovative and flat out cheesy.




    .....In this particular instance the line is a little thicker. lol.:D

    Then by all means, disregard my opinion and buy yourself 3 or 4.

    Im sure the catfish won't mind one bit if your rod looks like a christmas tree.

    For a 150 bucks a pop...I can do without the Christmas tree. I just wonder if the rods are any good. They seem to put more emphasis on the lights than they do on the quality of the rods.

    I use to have a Berkley glow stick which was nice.
    Now I just wire tie glow necklaces or the glow bracelets on my rods.
    The necklaces seem to work better and last longer.

    I prefer these over having lights wire tied at the end of the rod.

    I use a couple of methods. I try not to have any lights on when ever possible. Just when needed. I used to use the 1-1/2 inch glow sticks or chem sticks depending on how you refer to them. I attach them just below the tip of the rod with the narrow colored electrical tape. Works very well and does not leave a sticky residue on the rod when I remove them.

    Now all glow sticks are not the same. Some last 6 or 7 hours and are not very bright and others will last twice that long and glow brightly. Also if they are too bright I can use narrow black electricians tale t block some of the light.

    Here are the packs that I have had the best luck with. Note the three glow sticks by the dime.

    I have since switched to Whisker Seeker LEDs for my rod tips.

    They do a great job and as long as you remember to reverse the batter, turning the LED off, they will last a long time. The holders come in two sized so if you decide to try them be sure to determine which size you need. Sizing in important.

    I second Tom's recommendation of the Whisker seekers LEDs. And do not buy replacement batteries from Whisker seekers, they charge way too much. Amazon sells the same batteries for a fraction of the price.

    I got lucky there Eric. I initially ordered three LEDs. I liked them and ordered three more. Whisker Seeker messed up and got my order mixed up with some one else and sent me three packs of batteries, two in a pack. I immediately called Whisker seeker and explained the problem. They did a rush order to get me what I had originally ordered and told me to keep the three sets of batteries. Whisker Seeker went out of their way to make sure I was happy and to correct their mistake.

    I throw my glow sticks in the freezer when I get home to make them last longer.
    I have the Nyte Styx and the Whisker Stix and they both work great but being on the bank I prefer the 20 inch glow sticks.

    I have used the longer (bracelet style) glow sticks from Wally World on my large pool noodle home made floats. They are fun to watch at night.

    Stacee, Dan is being very quite. Heard from him lately?

    I hope he doesn't think we are shunning him because he lives close to Gnaw Bone. haha
