    :yeahthat: I've got 6 of them. Run them for trout on the big pond, and walleyes.

    Another vote for Ugly Stik here...I have 8 of them from 6'-8', and target walleye on Lk St Clair. Can't help hooking big Musky, Smallies, & Cats out there by accident trolling for 'eyes, and I've never had a problem. Dick's in Canton has a grand opening on Mich Ave & Canton Ctr, and I saw a some for $29.99 right now.

    I've been super happy with my Okuma Classic Pro CP-LC-70 rods for running my Church boards. They're 7' leadcore/planer rods in medium action. Big heavy duty eyes and a decent reel seat. Tackle Haven in Benton Harbor sells them (He is also ALFS Tackle on Ebay) You can get a 4 pack of them from him for about $80 shipped to your door.

    I had the TDR's be carefull the tips like to break right under the second eye. Lost 2 in one trip. One with a fish on the other putting a board back on. They were a few years old, I liked them up to that point. This year I'm going to start switching to ugly sticks for the eyes.
