It’s pretty simple. Nobody spends more time on the water (or ice) than Eric Haataja. Guiding over 300 times a year, he simply had enough of rods that didn’t meet his performance standards. After attempting to get other rod makers to build a better product, and having them reject his ideas because they cost too much, or couldn’t be done in China, Eric set out to design a world-class rod himself! Designed in the USA and built in the USA with domestic and foreign parts, you won’t find a higher quality ice fishing rod on the market!

US Angler Selects Haat Rods as Best Ice Fishing Rods
Love this hat and all of the other gear! Will be back for more!
Have not had a chance to use my new spoons yet. Going to Florida in early April, unless I'm not allowed to travel, and I'm looking forward to using them there. Love the company and the fishing videos. Order was filled and shipped immediately.
Perfect for jaw jackers!
Handled a 6 lb burb decent can't wait to try on lakers
I gave the rod to my husband for Christmas. He was super pumped about getting it and can't wait to use it.
31 inch Bkack Beauty, excellent jigging rod, backbone, sensitivity, heavier jigs, great length for inside hut. Looks great, well worth getting!
Best and best looking and performing lake trout or big pike rod you’re going to get
Jigging Spoon - Rooster
I have just started using them, so still learning.
But I smashed on some Giant Lake Erie smallies last week.
I haven’t used yet because there’s no ice but it looks very nice
I like the looks of them. I have not had a chance to use them. I will have to get back to you.
I must’ve lucked out and ended up on the top of the stack but my order was processed so fast I could hardly believe the tracking notice. Haven’t fished them yet but the proof is there. Solid people doing solid business. I wish I had a use for some ice rods just like supporting the small guys And gals. Pretty sure the whole family fills orders way to go Haat squad!
I haven't been able to use my rod quite yet, but the overall look and quality of this rod is amazing and have no doubts that it will hold up to the biggest fish!
It’s a really great rod and the quality is on par.
