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
Title says it all. Haat makes the best Ice fishing rods I've ever used
Northern NH averages small lake trout. The lakes I fish average 18” Lakers . I bought the 40” medium spinning and it has been perfect. The quality is amazing! The rod loads up really well but has enough backbone to set the hook! It even handles 1/2oz buck tails, but I wouldn’t go any heavier. I’m glad I had this rod when I hooked into a 6 pound 10 ounce laker. This rod handled the trout perfectly and I’m very impressed. Will be buying the 40” medium heavy spinning rod for my 3/4 ounce tubes or bigger jigs.
I’ve never had a bad experience with any item from the Haat company
After losing several big fish and realizing I was under gunned, I pulled the trigger on a black beauty. The rod is well made, the guides are sturdy and perfect for running braid. The extended butt helps horse the big ones to the hole. This this bends like no other for being a heavier rod, and is also sensitive enough to pick up light biting perch as they cruise through with the Eyes. Definitely will have this rod for a lifetime.
