Just bought a Jason Mitchell Meatstick rod...
« on: Jan 10, 2011, 04:12 PM »
question is... it doesnt come with clips to secure a reel to the rod... so how do you guys secure the reel to the rod? can you buy clips for these rods (the cork is fatter then most jig rods)? or do you just use tape? any help would be appreciated

electric tape, cable ties (not my favorite), or you can also get some shrink wrap pieces (i know st. croix supplied them with their rods)

If the bands came with the pole, they are probably shrink bands. My St. Croix came with black shrink bands.

Mine became 3" shorter on the first outing. The tip just broke. POS in my opinion.

It was sensitive for sure. My biggest complaint was the lack of service when I took it back to their booth at the Syracuse show. The rep said." Yeah, they've had some problems like that". That's all...no offer for replacement. I didn't demand either. At that point I 'd already decided not to deal with that company again.

Never had a problem with a Yad rod....for 1/3 the price of JM's expensive junk.

I broke my meatstick the other day, the tip is super sensative, my gill jig got slammed by a pike and the rod tip shredded. I have not called in yet to see what I can do

RG let me know what the name of those rods are please. I would love to try them. I really like my meatsticks but would definitely be willing to try others. I use the ST Croixs some but not the lengend, to much money.

give them a shot some time, the spring bobber on the legend is th best on the market in my opinon. The rods are good, perfect length and strength for the spring bobber
