Medium heavy or heavy here in michigan I use ice hoppers from sports men's direct or even ice blue series rods from ht


Might be better off with a medium in other states ware walleye is smaller? A big 30 incher you don't want to break the rod if avarge is smaller then ours at 18 to 20 inches then a medium maybe the way to go..

36" Schooley Arctic Ice fiberglass. Labeled light but fishes more like a medium. I work everything from  1/4 oz. Rip n Raps to 1/2 oz. Swedish pimples. Usually run one as a dead stick.

32 and 34" carbon

Actually you should call them and ask for an Ice Hopper built on their new walleye special blank- it's probably the best bang for the buck walleye rod out

Walleye special is the blank I built for one of my walleye rods. I like it better than some of the other blanks I have used.

You can’t go wrong with that one! The 34” is plenty versatile inside a shelter or out.
 I just love mine! I have a buddy on their pro staff. Great products. Good luck with it

You’re gonna love it - I use mine also for perch, trout and even landed some pike on it. It’s my go to ice rod.
