I received the Evolution 44" UL a few weeks ago. Think I'm gonna like it.  ;)

I got the Paragon and 44L last year. Iím needing something that handles my 5-6mm tungsten a little better than the 44L.

Any opinions on which way to go? 44UL or 44 Noodle?

I think the 44UL would easily handle the 5-6mm jigs. The biggest I use is 4mm but mostly 3mm.

When I was deciding between the Noodle and the UL, I contacted them with the questions I had. I would suggest you do that. They were a big help to me in my decision.

I won't go 40" but definitely will be grabbing one of the new odysseys at one of the ice shows here in MN.

Acme has a new Mick-E tungsten jig. 'Features Mick-E ears that help the jig glide and dance through the water like a real water bug.'

I'm curious to what the action looks like...

Well I emailed them last night and got a response this morning. They said the noodle is better for deeper water, more parabolic and UL is better for shallower water.

Yup. One of the questions I asked as well.  And because I rarely fish water over  20' feet deep, I opted for the UL.

That is a very odd response considering that in deeper water a glass rod is less capable of delivering the proper jigging technique to quiver the jig.  Furthermore it also has that loss of hook setting on point when especially gentle and precise hook setting is required on some of the softer bites.

It is still scenario specific because the mid winter doldrums when the fish are barely inhaling lures does call for a noodle action while waiting for the fish kissing the lures.  Looking for that 1/2" or so slow tip movement that a responsive graphite tip won't give.

For sure seeing the influx of lighter weight rod designs of all tennessee handles and titanium recoil wire ring guide frames.  New player to me, Della Bay customs ice rods.

Looks to be on par with similar price point ice rods.

Their 42" Noodle is an UL with Fast tip...the 44" UL has an Extra Fast tip. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah. Been looking at the jigs. Wondering how big the "ears" are.   :-\

Now that I looked at the pictures a little bit, double take.  They got the wrong picture on the Snitch Pro.  It's still the old Snitch.

The Snitch Pro is pictured in the combo or freefall combo.  :o

I have the 42 Noodle and love it for 4-5mm tungsten, I have the 44-LF for small spoons and small rippin raps.
The Odyseyy 40 Noodle is almost identical to the 42 Noodle in action.

Love these rods.

Della Bay makes some nice rods also,  been in the game for 6+ years I bet? Two younger guys in the twin cities. Still pounding out rods but unfortunately Nate is dealing with some serious health issues.  Needs a kidney transplant bad.

Vmc bull spoon just came out at my local shop. Has kinda of a clam flutter spoon shape to it but thicker metal. Picked up one in each size. Looks good.

I got a custom Parenteau Pup last season. Good rod. Probably a little stiffer than the L action itís designated.

My eyes do have a problem when tying on hooks and lures. But I wouldn't resort to using that tool.
The battery adapter to connect and reduce tool batteries to 12v is a great idea but it's not for sale on their website. They only list the knot tool.

I thought you guys that are doing the track sleds without lights would enjoy this one, going out at dark thirty like we do. To get the HOT hole lol;) For you
old dogs like me where you need a little more light to tie a knot. It was an awesome find. HH
