 Sweet ultralight
Pros: sensitivity, Good back bone, good cork, Good Tip Action
Cons: reel attachment, color
Best Uses: trout, panfish, perch
Comments: Awesome! It doesn't get any better than this when it comes to ice fishing for perch. Sensitive tip detects light bites without being too soft, so you can still use spoons for deep perch. Also has plenty of backbone for big trout. Reel attachment is 2 cheap o rings, break out the electrical tape.
 Premier Rod
Pros: Excellent feel
Cons: All action is in the tip.
Comments: Might be good for pan fish, not what I bought it for though.
 great rod
Pros: not overly priced
Comments: Love St Croix rods, landed a giant lake trout on the 32 medium. They are not overly priced, spending $100 on an ice rod is tough.

 The only Rods I use ice fishing
Pros: love jigging action, tough
Comments: Fast tip..........good backbone..........means walleye on the ice !
 Pretty good for the cost
Comments: I like these rods for the cost. Great name, great rod for the price, if you break it then it won't break the bank to buy a new one. Not real psyched about the new ice blue color.
 Great ice fishing rod
Pros: Well balanced, have the beef but also the finesse
Cons: handle is a little short
Comments: I just purchased this from Fish USA. 36" ultra light. Very happy with the action and balance. Quality product form St. Croix.

 30" Medium Heavy Action
Pros: Lightweight
Comments: Great ice fishing pole.
Pros: good blank, good cork
Cons: bad assembly
Comments: These are good blanks, and good cork handles. Not as much filler as the competition. BUT these rods are notorious for having the eyelets placed incorrectly according to where the spine of the rod blank is. BIG NO NO! Also misaligned guides is a problem. Happened to me on a st croix legend as well. The tip broke off too. If your looking to get one of these, make sure you go to the store. That way you know what your getting. All rods are not created equal, even if they are identical model rods. It would be a good rod if they put it together properly. All the parts are there.
 St Croix
Pros: Universal and well made
Comments: Great all species rod. Caught a laker with the medium and had no difficulty.

Best Uses: Ice Fishing

 excellent rod
Comments: excellent rod
 Very nice Rods!
Pros: Sensitive, Excellent feel, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I have bought both the ultra light for panfish and the medium light for walleye. So far I have only been able to use the ultra light and have really liked it. It is very sensitive but still has a good back bone for good hook sets. All in all a good rod value!
 Best rod for the money
Pros: Excellent feel
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: These rods are as advertised. They are a great rod for ice fishing and they don't break your wallet.

 Best ice rod on earth
Pros: Lightweight, Durable
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: If it is lighweight that you need with the backbone to go along with it then this is the rod for you. Coming in at a mighty 24" this rod can fight the smallest perch all the way up to a dinner sized pike. With its size you can put this in your everyday backpack and trek across the frozen heaven you are fishing.

Manitouwadge, Ontario, Canada
 My best lake trout ice rod I ever had !
Pros: A very lightweight, Very good reel saddle, Perfect finish, Durable
Cons: Needs care at transport
Best Uses: Lake trout ice fishing
Comments: This rod is soo good when ice fishing for lake trout ! A very best use of it is when using jigheads dressed with tubes and rod's 36" length helps with those high lifts with a little arm movement.
 The Best!
Pros: Lightweight, Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Excellent feel
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: This is an ideal jigging rod for walleye and trout. The 42" model provides more feel and control and allows me to jig in the hole farthest away from my chair.

 Quality Ice rod
Pros: Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Lightweight
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: Light and sensitive. The lack of reel seat allows for adjustable reel position for balance. I should have purchased 2. My order arrived quickly!
El Dizzle
Littleton, CO
Pros: Lightweight, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Cons: Breaks Easily
Best Uses: Large Fish, Ice Fishing
Comments: Dont have anything bad to say about this rod. I have the 36" mh spinning. If you're fishing in a hut probably get a bit shorter rod, other than that this rod is awesome for jigging everything from a 3/4oz tube jig, to an 1/8oz kastmaster. Do not hessitate to buy. Love the reel seat!
