Fenwick Elite Tech Ice Rods are serious ice rods for serious ice fishermen who know the value of a quality ice rod. Typically, traditional ice rods lose grip during cold, wet conditions on the ice – until now. Fenwick Elite Tech Ice Rods give anglers the best grip with the ergonomically shaped TAC (Technically Advanced Construction) and cork handle that increases grip and durability in even the most rigid conditions. The high modulus graphite blanks include smoked stainless steel frame guides with zirconium oxide inserts to reduce overall weight while handling harsh conditions placed on ice fishing equipment. The Fenwick Elite Tech Ice Rods feature a down locking 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. All these rods have a fast fishing action.
