    Not positive about this but I think he uses Evergreen Rods and has them imported from Japan. Something crazy like $1000 a piece. Like I said, not positive, just remember hearing him talk about something like that

    He was interviewed on a local radio fishing show on Saturday morning and he talked about how important it is to use a GLASS rod. Very interesting interview.

    I am a chatterbaiting fool. It is my go to bait. I use it everywhere with the exception of deep, clear lakes and smallmouth. I have followed B. Hite for sometime because of his love of the chatterbaits and his numerous tips on fishing them. I have heard him on more than one occasion mention the glass rod for this technique. Personally that is one aspect I'm not buying. My favorite set-up right now is a 7'3" Omen in MH with a fast tip rigged with a Lew's Team gold 7.1:1 reel. As I said I do a lot of work with this rig, especially up on Champlain. This rod has the forgiveness and the strength to root those bass out of milfoil and over laydowns. Just my opinion, but I haven't won $243,000 in the past 6 weeks either.
