    I hope they are as good as everyone says! I ordered one this past weekend and expect it any day. The price is great, and the fact that it has extra guide eyes was a big bonus.

    Love the American Premier Nite Sticks. Lots of backbone and my 8 footers casts heavy weights with ease. I own many rods, some higher and a few lower priced ones but the Nite Sticks always go with me.

    You can get the American Premier Nite Sticks from our BOC sponsor, Catfish Connection at an unbeatable price, lots of models to choose from. Catfish Connection caters to us catfisherman and stocks many items you will never find at your local tackle shop and their prices are great. There is a link to Catfish Connection at the top of the page. Abu

    You can buy them from Catfish Connection. Cheap too!

    I just got mine today and love it!! I bought a 9 footer cuz I do a lot of bank fishing and need a little help casting far.

    Took it down to the pier on Lake Erie earlier this evening for a few practice casts. I was whipping 3oz sinkers at least 75 yards or more with 30# mono. Almost nailed a jetskier LOL.

    Never tried the Pac-Hawks. Mine have white blanks with the blue splash, 8' casting rods, model ONG-828AB. They have 7 guides plus the tip.

    Jeremy(Cats4uandme) turned me on to those rods. I started with two 7' spinning rods, and then "graduated" to two 8' casting rods. I love them to death, and will never purchase another catfishing rod.

    I bought 4 of the 7' PacHawk Nite Sticks 3 or 4 years ago when they first became available. They have held up very well. flexible enough for small cats and tough enough for the big ones. Mine are loaded with guides. The white blanks are good at night too.

    Nate, glad you like it. Sounds like you are whipping the bait out there pretty good at 75 yards with 30# mono. I bet the jetskier didn't stick around long. :) Abu

    Abu, I couldn't say enough good things about this rod! I'll never buy another brand rod for cat fishing. Only thing that might change is buying the Nite Stick Pro's with the cork handles. I'm partial to cork, it's easier to hold if it gets cold or the handle gets wet.

    ya. these are great for the cash. i have several. i have two 8'ers with abu6500's a 9' with a penn 210 2 7' one with a penn #9 and one with a 5500. a couple 8 spinning. just traded a 9' with a penn roddy reel for a delta diamond tool box.

    cat connection sells the 8' rod with 8 guides + tip for $19.75. great price. i seen in my boat the 24# 8 oz flathead in my profile caught on the ohio by a 8' american premier on a penn perless #9 and ive caught several 10-13 # channels on then. just caught 2 last night at about 1#. so ya they are even sensitive enough for the small ones.

    for the price i like em alot.

    I have a 9' nitestick on the way, gonna put a penn209 or 309 on it, I haven't decided which reel yet. I have a 209 on an Ugly Stick Tiger, and I'm still learning baitcasters, I'm very happy with the 209 and thinking I oughta have 30# line on at least one of my poles.
