Question For Rod Experts

7 posts in this topic

Today I received a Mr. Walleye Series rod that I ordered. The catalog states that it's an IM7 Graphite. The rod says Spiral Halix Carbon Fiber. It seems to be a nice rod for client use but is this a graphite? Thanks

Which series did you get? They make the Mr. Walleye series and the Mr. Walleye Superpro.

The Superpro has the Spiral Helix Carbon Fiber

The other has 100% Graphite

And yes, Carbon fiber is a polymer which is a form of graphite. Graphite is a form of pure carbon. In graphite the carbon atoms are arranged into big sheets. The sheets look like chicken wire.

Carbon fiber is aranged into strands. They look like ribbons of graphite. Bunches of these ribbons like to pack together to form fibers, hence the name carbon fiber.

I got the SuperPro. They retail for $129. I got it for $77. It sounds like what your saying is that I got my moneys worth. Right?

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
