    Get yourself a couple more Glowstiks, that way when you're not fishin' you can have "lightsaber" fights with friends:tounge_out:

    I dunno man....my Glowstik is without a doubt my favorite rod, only thing better than a Glowstik is TWO Glowstiks!

    there are alotta good rods out there for the bank fisherman...i love the costume strikers by master...night sticks are good as well...i never could afford a st croix so i dont know much about them...my opinion is that you need more backbone to your rods from the bank the you do on the boat...ya have to get them turned before they find those dang snags...hope you enjoy whatever you get...keep on castin folks

    I've bought two Glowsticks but haven't been able to try them yet. I got an 8 footer and a shorter 7 footer for use where I don't have all that much room. It appears they are pretty beefy. I have Shimano Cardiff 401A (LH) reels on both and 65# Power Pro. I got them because I wanted a sturdier rod for these reels and needed to keep cost down right now.

    i have two of the 8' glowstiks and i just love them. im thinking if you love yours get a matching set, stick with what you already know you like.

    I have never seen a rod do that... How can you call a St. Croix a good bang for the buck? The first time I close a $300.00 rod in the trunk..... SSSSHHHHHooooooooeeeeee!!!!!!!!! I'd hate to hear that language.

    What's funny to me is that coming from a flyfishing background St. Croix rods ARE the budget rods! and people think nothing of spending 500-800 dollars and many fishermen spend more. For 300 dollars if you slam it in the trunk they replace it you pay shipping. If you have ever fished with a high end rod you know it's SWEET the sensitivity is amazing and the castabliity is unreal. That said for chucking bait to cats a cheepie rod will catch fish all day long.

    I have 4 St Croix panfish rods I think ay good rod will do for cats as long asi it is tuff St croix are high modeulos rods made to feel somethig sinsitive with MOST catfishing is done by visually seeing the bite or hearing a clicker So The cheaper E Glass rods do fine

    I know I am the last person who should say this but, "If it aint broke don't fix it". If you have a combo you like and works for you, stick with it. The reason I say I should say this is, I have been buying different rods left and right lately. I haven't gotten a chance to use any of them, but i will write reviews of all the rods i try out.
