Serious ice fishermen know the value of a quality ice rod. Typically, traditional ice rods lose grip during cold, wet conditions on the ice – until now. The new Fenwick Elite Tech Ice Rods give anglers the best grip with the TAC (Technically Advanced Construction) handle that increases grip and durability in even the most rigid conditions. This is the first of its kind in the ice fishing market. Stainless steel frame guides with aluminum oxide inserts reduce overall weight while handling harsh conditions placed on ice fishing equipment. Another feature that is unique to the Fenwick Elite Tech Ice Rods is the Twist-lock reel seat with stainless steel hood. This eliminates any need to tape the reel to the rod, giving anglers one less worry on the ice.
