« on: Sep 03, 2022, 04:47 PM »
Either the 44" UL or 42"Noodle. Can't make up my mind. Let's hear it.

Have all the Elliottís and most of the 2b rods. The 44 L is my go to perch rod. Ul is a great crappie rod. I use the noodle for a perch deadstick.

I just ordered the EE 44 UL. Gonna use it for my hole hopping pannie rod. It won the coin flip vs. the 42 Noodle.

I just got an evolution 42Ēul. Iíve been sick w Covid so didnít really check it out til today. Looked good from far but upon closer inspection the eyes are crooked. Looks like a drunk going down road. I work construction and anyone does know how your eyes view level, straight, plum, this looks like a non professional did this. Iím sending it back. Canít stand paying extra for something someone wonít/didnít put the time in but simply inflated price. Very aggravating.

Did you buy it direct or from a retailer?

As did I. I'd read where this was an issue, but was told the issue was corrected. So I ordered one. Mine is ok. 🤷‍♂️

Well I write them an email and Iím gonna try calling tomo. This doesnít sit good with me. I install something you donít need to call and tell me thereís a problem. Itís my responsibility to check it, as this was theirs. They failed and should be embarrassed. I wasnít aware of the issue but now Iím even madder cause they knew about it and still didnít extra check

If I'm gonna drop some serious money on anything...I'm investigating it. Make calls, check reviews, previous owners, etc. before I take the plunge. Sorry your experience didn't go as well.

X2, I do a lot of research before I buy anything expensive.

Itís actually not super expensive per se. Some guys spend more a night at the bar but the price is a little high. To me fit n fish is key, quality control is key. Iíd expect more if I spent 40 bucks on the rod. We will see what customer service does
