Pros & Cons Of The Bull Bay Stealth Sniper


  • Good blend of power and action
  • Great for many different lures and species
  • Tangle-free guides
  • Casts amazing (this is the rod I use for our lure contests)


  • EVA grip material
  • The split-grip (personal preference)
  • Hook keeper does not secure a weedless soft plastic

This inshore rod is strong enough to get a good hook set with soft plastics but light enough to cast little crab lures for sheepshead in the winter.

I also use this with paddletails and topwaters for snook and redfish.

There are only a hand full of rods that have a great combination of both power and action.

And the Bull Bay Stealth Sniper is one of them.

That’s why we used the Stealth Sniper blank to create our custom inshore rod.

Thanks for reviewing the sniper. Will you consider reviewing the bull bay rods Banshee soon?

Made in USA right? I’d say that’s another ‘pro’ for sure.

I actually have several Bull Bay Sniper rods which costs only a few dollars more than the Stealth Sniper and have the split cork. Love the rods. We fish mostly artificial and agree with Luke that the MH in both 7’6” and 7’ are probably best choice for inshore reds and snook, but I also love the 7’ Medium (6-12 lb). It’s a great finesse rod, light as can be, and can handle good sized reds and snook.

How does it compare to their Reel Animal Model?

I picked up the Stealth Sniper for a steal, recently. The only one available was the 7’6 Medium Fast 6-12. I was cautious at first because that is a lot lighter than any rod I own. Mind you, I own 2 TFO Pro 7’6 MF. They are rated 6-12. But they have a much thicker backbone. That said, I hooked a 33 inch Snook today at the Spillway. I played the fish a little lighter than normal but the rod handheld the fish beautifully. This rod is a lot of fun. I have it paired with a 2500 Fuego LT w/10lb braid. Casting distance is comparable to the TFO rod. I get a little more distance over the TFO. I am able to launch a 3/16oz jighead with the Sniper. So far, it is a great rod so far. I’ll write a better review once I’ve put more time in.

I looked at all of the BB rods at a local tackle shop and was really interested in the Bolt. It is the most expensive of the BB rods. Can you do a review of that rod Luke? Can you sell BB rods on the shop page? I know this is off subject, but I agree with you on the split grips. I have a hard time cleaning the cork on my rods. What is the best way to clean cork without tearing of chunks of it?

Magic easier cleans cork handles well. Get it wet and it will take off the dirt. Then use U-40 cork seal to protect the cork for the future.

Try using simple green on it and or a Mr. Clean magic eraser.

It’s interesting that the link to the Bull Bay Stealth Sniper rods doesn’t give a rod option for a 7′ 6″ Medium Power Fast Action 8 – 17#. There is one for 7′ 6″ Medium Heavy Fast 8 – 17#, and also a 7′ 6″ Medium Power Fast Action 6 – 12#, but not the rod showed in the review.
