Are the bonehead rods worth the money? What's the best length to jig with?

If'n I bought one it'd be round tha 10 ta 12' range but it'd totally depends on yer preferred fishn method, mine being vertical jigging that'd be my length range although some would say that'd be too long...  :ROFLMAO
SOME GO FISHN, ME I GO CATCHN & ALWAYS FEED'EM A JIG CAUSE IT'S FASTER THAN CHASEN A MINNER IN A BUCKET!!!
HOPE YOUR JIGS STAY WET.....

I have an 8' and it is easily my favorite rod.  That being said it will probably be the only one I own just because of the cost.  Have several other rods that are very close second that were a fraction of the cost.   That and the fact I already have more rods than my wife thinks I should have.

If money is not a limiting factor, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks fellas I have a couple of rods I bought from bass pro called the difference! They were 40 bucks a piece and both tips broke off. I do a lot of vertical fishing and the rods I have are 12 ft! I'm leaning more towards a 10ft now and I checked one out at the bait shop in chandler. He said it was a little over 100 dollars! But it seemed well made so I may get it!

If you fish under any low bridges you might want a shorter rod.  I just bought a 7ft. BoneHead and it's a nice rod.  Lots of backbone for the occasional bass or cat.  Also bought a 6.5ft ProAngler which is also a nice rod for half the price.  Don't know that one is anymore sensitive than the other but the BoneHead is lighter and I think better balanced.

That makes sense! Lol I broke my tips fishing under the 155 bridge. Creek side in chandler had a nice 8ft that felt good so I'm probably going to go a little shorter. Seems like the 10 ft would be great out in the stumps.

Yes sir, if you're out in the open or jigging stumps and trees then a 10 or 12 footer is hard to beat.  I like a long rod when fishing lay downs too because you can place your jig where you want it.

seems to me to be very durable ......very sensitive ....and very strong ....
but then gain what do I know ....with an IQ a 10 its hard to find my shoelaces
much less tie them .... :ROFLMAO
but on a serious note they really are pretty nice rods in my opinion ...... :clap
a bit pricey ,but ya know what they say ...ya get what ya pay for ....
comparable quality runs around twice that price or more .....

Are you sure they weren't talking about mental age instead of IQ?    :ROFLMAO

Since I am still a relative newcomer to the crappie game, I still fish with some cheap equipment. I keep thinking about getting a pro Angler or bonehead but just haven't committed to it yet.

Yep I fish with middle of the road equipment and have caught plenty of fish. A hundred dollar rod isn't necessary but a real treat!
