The AvoSlab combo has been developed specifically for crappie and panfish by pairing the correct rod, reel, and line together. These combos use a 500UL reel pre-spooled with Hi -Vis Yellow 4# Stren Crappie Mono. The reel is mounted on a sensitive graphite rod that has a Hi-Vis tip for feeling and seeing the most subtle bites.
