13 Fishing Black Betty Ice Rod/Reel Combos feature solid graphite rod blanks, complete with a combination cork/EVA handle with an up-locking reel seat and a hook keeper. The rod also features stainless steel guides with polished inserts, perfect for use with monofilament and fluorocarbon ice lines. The 1:1 retrieve ratio of the reel is great for repeating your presentation at the desired depth. This style of reel allows the line to feed straight off of the spool eliminating line twist, line coiling and the spinning of your lure/tackle.
The Black Betty reel features an interchangeable retrieve, right or left hand. The aluminum revolver custom spool adds durability as well as aesthetic value to the reel. An oversized EVA handle knob allows use without the need to remove gloves or mittens. A smooth cork drag provides protection for light lines and hard fighting fish.
Features of 13 Fishing Black Betty Ice Rod/Reel Combos include:
I used the pole to fish Minnesota at temperatures of -23 and the pole worked just great. Sensitive to the bite. Hooking a large fish will require a little finesse in controlling the drag so as not to break the line.
nice lightweight ice rod/reel combo
Top notch. Very well made and love the drop down reel. I can keep my cloves on while fishing.
I also love the Super Ultra Lite pole.
Never thought I would spend more than $20 for a combo for ice fishing, but when I saw this Bad Boy, something made me say, "Gottta have it!" . The pictures don't do this work of art justice. Quality from the tip top to the reel is second to none. This is a serious piece of equipment.!
With that said, I have to wait 4 more longgggg weeks for my vacation to try my Black Betty out on the ice. But just spooling it up with fresh line and playing with different jigs in my Man Cave, I know I won't be dissapointed. Already stashing my coins so I can buy another one, hopefully before my vacation gets here!
You can spend more money, but why? This combo has everything you need.
