Sensitive lightweight rod with tiny eyelets    (from prior model)
Pros: Lightweight, Sensitive
Cons: Tiny Guides
Best Uses: Smelt Perch
Comments: The tip of one of these came off on the first day I used it so I superglued it back on...slightly crooked. I ended up cutting off one of the eyelets, 2nd from the top because there were so many, and they are so small. For $7.99 for the 24 inch it is hard to complain, by the eyelets do ice up very easily. I need to find a way to enlarge or adjust them. Otherwise, very sensitive and great for smelt and panfish.

Best affordable rod, period.   (from prior model)
Pros: Good price value, Very Sensitive
Cons: Needs more backbone
Best Uses: As designed...ice fishing for trout and panfish
Comments: I've loved these rods for years. For the money, you won't find anything better. I love them for their sensitive tips and they fight panfish well. I also love that there are long versions for hole hopping and an 18" for sight fishing. Only knock is they are a noodle all the way through, they could use a little more backbone. And I wish the guides on the 48" were the same as what are on the smaller versions(bare metal instead of plastic lined)

Great little rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Lightweight, Sensitive yet durable tip, stays flexible in cold weather. does not break easily, great value for the price, nice and sturdy little rod
Cons: none to speak of
Best Uses: ice fishing for smelts
Comments: I really like this rod. It's well made and does the job I bought it for (ice fishing for smelts). I have no complaints. They are very lightweight and sensitive to any bites. A couple of weeks ago I bought two different little rods for ice fishing from a different company and paid only slightly less for them only to have one break before I even got to use it (they were poor quality and not at all what I was expecting). I can't say that about these rods. Count me as a pleased customer... in fact I have already ordered an additional two rods already.

Kevin
Great Rods!   (from prior model)
Comments: These are fantastic rods if you are on a budget. I prefer the 30" length, I feel it has the perfect amount of backbone and tip to keep crappies and bluegills hooked up. The 24" is okay as well, but has a little less backbone.

great rods for the price   (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Backbone, great price, Sensitive
Cons: No real negatives
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: This is a great rod. I have the 24" and the 30". I've pretty much gotten rid of my spring bobbers as these rods detect everything. They're fun to use for pan fish and handle the surprise walleye or pike with ease.

I Had My Doubts   (from prior model)
Pros: Lowest cost QUALITY rod, stays flexible in cold weather. does not break easily, Flexible
Best Uses: Winter crappie fishing
Comments: I had my doubts about this rod, because of the low price. The positive reviews swayed me to give it a chance. I have the 24", paired with a No.8 inline reel, and together they are sweet! First, the rod looks great. I love the color combination. Second, it is very lightweight, and detects the slightest nibble. It has great sensitivity, yet maintains a good backbone. To be fair, the largest fish I have caught with it, is a 14" walleye. It handled the fish with ease. I've caught numerous perch, and crappies also, and it's with the panfish, that I believe the rod shines. I plan on purchasing another one in the near future.

Great Purchase!!!!   (from prior model)
Pros: Great light weight rod
Cons: Too flexible
Best Uses: Great for Blue Gills, Winter crappie fishing
Comments: This is a great rod and great buy if you are planning on bluegill fishing. I lucked out and caught a few big crappie on this rod too, the ONLY "bad" thing about this rod is it is a little too flexible for bigger fish. Other than that I couldn't be happier with it!
Cmack
Good For the Price (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible, Lowest cost QUALITY rod, Sensitive yet durable tip, Durable
Cons: Power, Guides 2 small ice up
Comments: I got the 24 inch for general ice fishing, mostly panfish and bass. I have used it for 1.5 seasons. These things are VERY durable and sensitive, like most fiberglass poles (ie Ugly Sticks). However, the last 3 guides freeze almost instantly, making fishing a great hassle. I replaced them with much wider homemade guides. Also, my rod has almost no backbone, so I struggle to keep control of larger fish on the line. Do not get me wrong, I do like this rod and it is a tremendous value, but keep my cons in consideration.

Comments: I have bought a dozen or more of these ice blues and I think they are the best rods for ice fishing. I have never broken one and every time I show them to people they want to buy one. That is why I bought a dozen or more. The orange tip acts like a spring bobber. They are a great little pole.

Perfect Ice Rod   (from prior model)
Pros: best for light bites
Cons: they have memory
Best Uses:
Comments: I use these for fishing mainly for perch but they are fun for any pan fish. I think they give you the best showing for the smallest of bites, better than any graphite rod that I have ever used.

BEST winter spinning rod ever   (from prior model)
Pros: Good price value, stays flexible in cold weather. does not break easily
Best Uses:
Comments: These rods perform perfectly for winter time crappie fishing. The super flex tip can indicate the slightest bite like a spring bobber. I 've caught 8 pound wipers with these rods and never broken one yet. I dropped one in my slip last year and luckily caught it this year. I wiped off the crud/moss and put on another reel and it works as good as new after being in 18 feet of water for a year. It outperforms expensive graphite rods that break easy in extreme cold weather. Now around 20 guys I fish with have them.

HT Ice Blue Rods (from prior model)
Pros: Super sensitive, strong
Best Uses: pan fish and jigging off a boat early season
Comments: While scanning reviews I noticed a review I placed in 2007 when I first started using these rods. Now, its 2013 as of last year ALL of my fishing friends are using these rods in the 36 inch range and some people I have met on the ice that were very interested in ordering them for their own use. I can't say enough about these rods, they will hold BIG fish just take your time on the retrieve and a loose drag, the last post I made I stated a stripper and a salmon since then I have taken many strippers up to about 12 pounds. If your fishing from a shanty I don't recommend the 36 inch unless you have a big tent the 24 works great. Over the years I must have ordered about 40 of these rods for different friends, I alone now have about 8. Anyone that has one cannot go back to the old style ice rods its like fishing with a telephone pole. You won't be sorry......Good fishing this year 2013......if we have ice haha

Sensitive, Durable and Deadly   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive yet durable tip, Great backbone, Good price value
Cons: No real negatives
Best Uses: As designed...ice fishing for trout and panfish
Comments: I purchased three of these rods and had the opportunity to test them fishing on Diamond Lake here in Oregon this last week. Our party of three each used one of these sensitive to detecting the bite rods and all caught some nice trout. We had some fish over twenty inches long and the rods performed very well with these large trout sawing around the bottom of the hole befroe finally being slipped out on the ice. The rod tips let's you see the most sensitive bump wether using bait or lures and yet have the backbone to put the screws to larger fish when setting the hook. The reel handle bands are simple yet allow you to use a wide range of reel types for whatever is your style.

Using the 48-inch HT Ice Blue Super Flex down South    (from prior model)
Pros: Lowest cost QUALITY rod, excellent for light biting fish, great fun, the extra length of the 48" is advantageous
Cons: No real negatives
Best Uses: Hole hopping on the ice, vertical jigging reatively heavy lures from a boat, fishing really light lures with spring bobber
Comments: I bought two of these rods recently. Of course, the streams don't ice over in central Alabama where I live, but these rods have proven very effective in vertical jigging from my bass boat. I target yellow perch, crappie, white bass, bluegills and Alabama (spotted) bass in water depths of 4 to 50+ feet. The action is "light" - the parabolic action, 48" rod doesn't have an ultra sensitive, really fine tip, but for the relatively heavy (1/12 oz. or heavier) lures required when fishing from a boat in wind or current, that is a perfect action. Furthermore, the bright orange tip helps in detecting strikes. With 2- or 4-lb. test superline having a very low stretch (Nanofil, for example), these rods are hard to beat. I know the 4-foot ice fishing rods were designed for hole hopping on the ice, but they work well for deep or shallow vertical jigging from a boat. Even in a moderate wind, a 3- or 4-foot rod is about the mininum you want when fishing out of a boat, because it's just too hard to keep the line away from the boat or the trolling motor with a really short rod. On a still day, however, a shorter ice fishing rod or a rod with an ultralight tip can be used if desired. One of my 48-inch HT Supe Flex rods is rigged with an a long flat HT spring bobber, which is fairly stiff but adjustable, and I really like this combination. The additional 4 or 5 inches of length provided by the spring provides greatly enhanced visual indications when a light-biting fish is nipping at the lure. On a day when there is little wind, it is possible to fish very light lures such as those used by ice fisherman from a boat. I have more expensive ice fishing rods in my arsenal, but the HT rods are a tremendous bargain, and I've caught a ton of fish with them. I have read some reviews where the slip ring reel seats received negative ratings, but I don't find them objectionable at all. The HT Ice Blue rods are great.

solid rod for the price   (from prior model)
Pros: very sensitive
Cons: durability
Best Uses: Panfish
Comments: I bought 2 of these rods from this site to replace my 3 year old ice blue super flex rods. My line was starting to fray due to the last rod eye being "grooved" from fishing line. Very sensitive rod that is my go to panfish rod. FYI I have use these rods for quite a few years. The first one of thes rods I had I snapped the rod tip on due to having the jig hooked in one of the lower rod guides. During transport and vibrating my reel managed to crank to the point of snapping my rod, so loosen your drag on the reel or don't hook your jig through a guide on the rod.

Perch and Gills beware   (from prior model)
Pros: everything
Best Uses: perch and bluegills
Comments: I have had at least 10 of these rods and love fishing with them. I take friends out fishing and let them use them and they always ask where I got them. Needless to say I have had to purchase more because I lend them to my friends and I never see them back. It's not that I have bad friends, but rather this is a great product. They work great for perch and bluegill. I have even caught eyes and pike and the rod handle awesome.

Not just for Ice Fishing   (from prior model)
Pros: Very Sensitive, Inexpensive
Cons: The tips can break easily, but we abuse them with bigger fish
Best Uses: Trout Panfish and small bass
Comments: My grandson and I use these for trout fishing in smaller mountain streams and creeks. Over Labor Day weekend, my grandson caught a 4.5 pound, 22 inch rainbow trout on a 48" ice rod and 6 pound test on the reel. No trout bite is too small to go undetected with these rods. Also, makes a great little blue gill rod. At the price of these rods, I keep at least 4 of them on-hand at all times. Love them!

To soft for me   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Good Tip Action, Lightweight
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: Purchased after 20 years of fishing with Schooley rods. Thought I would try. Rod is ok but doesnt have the strong backbone in it. The schooley rods have a soft tip with a stiff backbone for maximum hook setting power. I gave these to friend. Just not what I was hoping for. I guess it is called superflex so my fault.

Great ice rod for the money   (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Lightweight, Sensitive
Cons: Breaks Easily
Best Uses: Ice Fishing, Small Fish
Comments: This is a great rod for the money. I have them in 36, 30, 24 and 18. They are very good for perch and other panfish yet have the back bone to land larger fish such as walleye. I had one rod break at the tip so you have to really watch how you store them. I have many rods and usually end up using this one rather it be trout or other panfish.

Pros: Flexible, Lightweight, Durable, Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Ice Fishing, Small Fish
Comments: This is a ice rod that should be part of your ice fishing equitment.. Especially for Panfish.. This rod not only is flexible, but it also has the back bone to hook the big fish. No need for a spring bobber... the tip is all that you need. This is the 4th Ice Blue Super Flex that I have, for the ice. I have found out the 24" is just the right lenght when fishing in my portable shelter.

Best Uses: Ice fishing, Small Fish
Comments: I have reeled in even large fish with this ultralite. Had to add a spring bobber even though advertisement said none would be needed.Rings do not stay in place well with my tiny okuma reel this may be due to such short handle, might have to use some tape.

Comments: Great rod for the money. I recently broke an older model HT and needed to replace it. I swear this rod is identical. The rod is a different color is all. I've used them for about 15 years and never had a problem other than the breakage that was my fault. You won't beat the price either!

Best panfish rod made...Period (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible, Sensitive, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: Ice Blue Super Flex fishing rods are the best ice fishing rods I have ever used for perch, bluegills and crappies. I hate using spring bobbers and the light action rods with very sensitive tips from Ice Blue allows me to fish without any add ons to my rod. If your any kind of a fisherman at all you will out fish anyone that's not using an Ice Blue. Can't say enough... Try one, you'll love it.

THE pole for "finesse" ice fishing   (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Flexible
Cons: Guides 2 small ice up
Best Uses: Small Fish, Ice fishing, Trout up to 2 pounds
Comments: I bought 1 of the 24" superflex poles 3 years ago and although I take 12-14 ice rods with me I kept finding myself fishing with this one!! Last year I got into night fishing for super light biteing crappie and this pole was the best bar none. So I ordered another 24 and a 30". After useing the 30" 3 times this year, I love it and will soon try the 36" model. No need for a wire bobber with these poles, even fishing for perch and crappie. These poles are very thin. You think they would break but I have landed 2# trout and 26" burbot and all they do is bend in half!! They are too light for a stiff hookset and the eyes are small and ice up, but I still keep fishing them on all but the larger fish!!

Can you see the bite?   (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: I use the product ice fishing. The 24" works the best for me. The 18" is a little stiff for jigging for me to see the bite. I do use it with a cork. The longer one is ok if you sit on a bucket or something.

Not sharing the secret: IB48   (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible, Durable, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: IB 48's. I don't recommend these because my secret will be out. Perch and bluegill on St Clair and Simcoe. We see the bite with the red tip before we feel it. Add a non-stretch line to the open water fishing. enough back bone for those occasional 5 lb bass. More fun, more productive than heavier rods. I give them away for christmas to my fishing buddies.
