Ok, I'm getting this rod as it works on ducks according to BassPro! :lol:

Doesn't everybody fish for ducks?I mean I love to cast out the latest duck decoy swimbait and catch those hawg mallards.They really put up a great fight especially when they try to fly away.

I sent them an e-mail on the error. I wonder how long it will take for them to correct before they sell too many under the presumption that they catch ducks, and people start to return them cause they don't. :lol:

Hey the bcr. series catches seagulls. When jimmyb came to my town to fish, I caught a seagull on my bcr853-alpha ito, with a texas rigged sweetbeaver.
