More Haat rod quality 40”MH

I purchased this rod at the same time as an equivalent Tuned Up Custom rod. The look and build quality of the Haat is better in my opinion, especially at the tip where the tuned up has a damage prone rod eye extending beyond the rod end as if someone wacked off a walleye rod after one of the middle eyes. I’m sure this doesn’t bother some, however because I jam too many rods into an aluminum riffle case, it is a concern. Can’t speak for performance yet, as I have only accidentally caught low 40” Musky on both, (plenty strong) not sure of ability to absorb head-shakes properly. Seems to have just the right combination of backbone and flex- ice might not cooperate for this years late ice laker hunt🙄... Overall, it’s the favorite rod in my case next to some St. Croix Mojos and a Tuned up- Thank You!!!!!
BTW Thank you to Uncut Angling (on YouTube) for turning me onto this rod!!!!

Better than the rest

I bought this rod and the extra heavy baitcaster rod for a trip to Nipigon where the my other trout rods likely wouldn't be able to handle the weight. Unfortunately the trip was covid cancelled but was able to test out the 40" MH on a Canada trip before the border closed. The rod was noticeably better with hook sets and didn't bounce as much during the fight like the St. Croix and Fenwick M and MH 36" spinning rods on the 4-10lb trout. If you have the space in your house or fish outside, this rod is worth the extra money. Can't wait to break 40" with the extra stiff baitcaster. Haat rods are a superior product in my opinion.

Medium heavy spinning rod

Medium heavy spinning rod Has to be one of the best ice fishing rods out there. I have to say I have every rod that they sell and everyone is magnificent. If you are looking for great action in a rod these rods are it. I wouldn't ever buy another ice rod from any other company. I have put these rods to the test not just ice fishing but I have also used them in the ocean. The rods held up to blue fish fluke and sand sharks. Not only are the rods amazing but the customer service is like no other. They are very responsive on getting back to you. Over all I will give this company 100% all the way around.

40" MH Laker Rod

I only got to use the Rod a couple times since purchase, caught a couple lake trout on Big Green Lake where i`m a Avid laker fisherman. Great rod and seemed to handle the fish very well, the only thing i would like to see on the rods is a bigger line guide in the rear closest to the reel so it does`nt bind quite as much on bigger fish otherwise Love the rod so far! Hopefully next ice season it will get a workout and see how it stands up! Great Quality made Rod! Thank You!
