96% tubular graphite, rear mounted fixed reel seat. 20" EVA foam handle adds more balance, feels 25% lighter. Light, sensitive and strong.We introduced the very first graphite jig pole over 30 years ago, the Bucks Graphite Jig Pole. Now, the pole that every crappie fishermen has in their boat just got a great face-lift and even greater features. Redesigned. First, we improved and enlarged the guides. The single-foot Dynaflo guides are lighter and more durable because of the alloy construction and inserts. No more ceramic eyes popping out! And, the increased diameter of these guides will provide more versatility when using a float or bobber. The all-new reel seat now keeps the reel tighter to the pole, allowing for even more sensitivity yet providing outstanding shock absorption. All of these great new features, along with a new, flat-black rod finish, come to you at no extra charge.
