St. Croix Premier Ice Combos feature the St. Croix Premier ice rod, matched with a St. Croix STC500 ice reel. Premier ice rods feature a solid carbon blank, stainless steel guides and traditional cork handles. They have a metallic teal finish with black guide wraps trimmed in silver. The rod handle comes with wide reel bands that can be heat shrunk to fasten the reel to the rod, except model PIC32M which comes with a fixed reel seat.
The STC500 front-drag ice reel features an aluminum body, aluminum spool, 3+1 ball bearings, left or right hand retrieve, and infinite anti-reverse for quick hook-sets. The elongated stem improves extra room and increased comfort when wearing gloves. This is a quality spinning reel.
