Title: Affordable pike rod
Post by: Remps17 on Jan 10, 2019, 02:16 PM
Hey everyone.

I have some custom ice rods that are designed for pike and I love them. But I got a group of friends and family that I have to outfit for an ice fishing trip.

I like a longer rod for pike, something in the 32”+ range. I fish these rods on a flag system mostly so won’t be doing to much jigging.

Price range is that 40-70 range.

Thanks.

Stay safe

i have a few of the HT polar golds and really like them but they dont make them in a  32+

these would probably work well for pike too.

leaves a nice portion of the money for a reel which i think is more important.

They may come in a combo but junk the reels and put on a better reel then you're set.  Cheap at $15.
