Yes maybe even 10 years but he was claiming he used the new micro.

As it goes that sometimes manufactures will allow a few people chosen to test their product out before the final release date.

I highly doubt they've been letting people test them for "a few years". Got a micro in the mail finally, thought it'd be smaller based off the other okuma tanks I have but it'll work

Not for a few years.  They don't have time for that much field test.

I have been wearing a new pair of Ice Monkey Yeti Ice Fishing Gloves for a week now (5-13 Nov). 

These will be my ice fishing gloves for this season so I have been wearing them shoveling snow to break them in. Really nice.

Easy to get on and off.  Waterproof, warm, and fit great.  I have used them with the Ice Monkey insert-gloves as well.

I am going to say they are better than my Striker Defenders and my Clam Ice Armors.  And cheaper than both.  75 for the Yeti Gloves and free inserts.

I have decided to invest in a few 9AH batteries this year for the drill.  Going electric.  No more hand cranking.

If anyone gets to hold this let me know, interested but wondering about the sensitivity and how well it stays in the handle

Looking over the Okuma Ice rods.  The Cold Water Ice rods appear to be most similar to St Croix Mojo Ice rods even the line guides have similar size and spacing.  The Inspira Ice rods appear to mimic 13 Fishing Tickle sticks with the flat tip.

What's a bit misleading is the picture that Okuma using to showcase the Cold Water ice rods.  They show 4 line guides plus tip guide.  However the actual rod itself is 3 line guides plus tip guide.

Makes me wonder if the rods did come from the same manufacturing plant.
