What an exceptional fishing rod!!!

How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
The quality is outstanding. I have fished with "Sam Heaton" rods for several years now. I have had problems in the past with fatigue because I fished so long and hard. But the Sam Heaton light weight solved my problems allowing me more hours on the lake and enjoyment of the "thump".
Would you recommend this item?
I recommend this rod to any serious crappie fisherman. It is like fishing with a feather. Most enjoyable!
Does this help you catch more fish?
The Sam Heaton is especially useful and productive when dealing with "lite taps". You can feel everything a jig touches. Wonderful experience especially when vertical fishing in heavy cover allowing differentiation between crappie taps and bumps on the cover. I find this helpful preventing hang ups, saving time, and catching more fish.
What are your favorite features of this item?
It is a toss up for me between the light weight and the sensativity. It's like the old adage, "which came first, the chicken or the egg"? The weight allows me to fish longer and the sensitivity catches more crappie. In either case, these attributes allow me to more time on the lake fishing.
Was this item priced appropriately for its function?
Everybody wants affordability, but I believe you get what you pay for. But regardless, when you buy a Sam Heaton, I feel certain you get your money's worth!
Does this item meet your expectations?
The SH Jig pole is perfect for my needs. I couldn't be more pleased with its performance.
Please give your general opinion of this product.
The Sam Heaton Jig Pole is outstanding in every regard. Anyone purchasing this rod will never be disappointed in its performance or durability. For what it's worth, I highly recommend this product.
