Ratings & Reviews
Previous negative review by another is not accurate description
by Dustin Sturdevant
All due respect, Mr. Staff who wrote a previous review for this rig must not understand or know that the little black turn switch on the back side if the reel (the one that says “DROP SPEED”) is used precisely to surplant the “backlash” issue he complains about. Honestly I don’t think in the 2 straight months of fishing the ice last year with 3 of these rigs all day long everyday did I once ever have an “over-travel” issue because I understood to set the drop speed adjustment. So NO Mr Staff you are completely wrong again, you don’t need to lower your line in increments at all! Pull the trigger and let it drop as fast as possible back down to that perch school and snag another, repeat....THE MAIN REASON I LOVE THIS REEL IS FOR THIS REASON, IT CAN BE DROPPED FASTER THAN SNOT AND CAN BE STOPPED ON A DIME BY SIMPLY RELEASING THE TRIGGER ALL WITHOUT ANY SPOOL OVER-TRAVEL
Best rod/reel combo ever. Period.
by Dustin Sturdevant
Mr Staff is correct about one important thing..... this is by far the best rod and reel combo I’ve ever bought and used. PERIOD. My go-to rod in upper MI for slaying the 12-14 inch yellow perch all day long. Super sensitive so no spring bobber is need while at the same time the toughness and spine on this little bugger easily pulled in bigger fish like whitefish, sucker, large mouth, walleye, and even a huge northern pike!
Tickle rod/reel combo review
by David Staff
Reel takes a little getting used to. It will over travel and get the line to loosen on the spool and make a huge mess. So pay attention. Lower the jig in increments. Sensitivity of the rod is fantastic. Detection of bites is very good. Be carefeful with the tip. This rod is my small jig rod. I use tungsten jigs size 10, 3.5mm and 5mm sizes. I catch, perch, bluegill, and crappie with it. Largest fish caught was 13" perch. With the drag properly set it will catch bigger fish. It is my go to rod. Note: Most of my fishing is in water less than 20 ft deep.
