1 piece 6ft UL

Recommended Posts

I am in search of a 6ft 1 piece UL for crappie fishing.  My budget is $150.  I plan on using this rod for casting road runners and maribou jigs.  Any recommendations?

I have a  6' Avid Ul but I wouldn't use it for those baits, it's too light even to set the hook on a crappie. I prefer a regular light for those baits unless the jigs are tiny, less than 1/32oz.

Look at the st.croix panfish series! Premier also. But I prefer the panfish

Field and stream tec lite is only $50 and I PROMISE you it won't disappoint! I have a 6'6" 1 piece light action that I use for trout and panfish.

And like @everythingthatswims on less expensive rods, I can
wholeheartedly recommend Bass Pro's MicroLite spinning
rods. I've got a 5'6" L travel rod that is more like a ML power,
and now a 6' ML.

They are excellent rods for the money. Caught many smallies
and perch. Plenty strong yet plenty light to cast lighter lures.

Ugly stik or lower-middle range shimano rod paired with a nice pflueger reel would be a great little panfish/crappie rod.

AVS60LF would be a good fit. It's $180 but I'm sure with a little looking could find it around $150. It only weights 2.5oz.

This!^ I love fishing for sunfish and crappie and this rod is the best I have used and I have used a lot of different rods. The BPS MicroLite Graphite used to be a close number two, but they have changed the rod completely and I haven't fished it since they changed it.
