These rods are by far worth every dollar, they keep fish pinned, and the eyes don’t ice up, I’m very happy and would highly recommend , I own a few now. Will be buying more
This was my first Haat rod and I love it. Ordered it for jigging heavy jigs in deep water. Caught 50-60 Lakers with it so far and have ZERO complaints. Will order from Haat again! Great product and great service!!
Best ice rods I've found on the market durable and they look good paired with my Shimano Sanford 2500HD series spinning reels I would highly recommend them for catching big Lakers
Hooked into a 15 pound lake trout and it handled the fish perfectly! Awesome action that absorbs big head shakes great.
I wanted a fishing rod that could handle redfish and speckled trout here in the Florida panhandle while still being small enough to not crowd the boat too much. I was skeptical at first but the Medium heavy spinning rod not only was the perfect size, but had no trouble bringing some good sized fish up to the boat. I've only been able to go a handful of times this year, but so far this little over achiever has brought in redfish, speckled trout, black drum, plenty of lady fish, a jack crevalle and even a stingray! I absolutely love that this little fella gets giggles from my "serious" fishing buddies, at least until I start catching. I know its not meant for the way I use it, but it handles everything i throw at it and the size is perfect for my situation. Exactly what I wanted, Thank you Haat folks for making an outstanding product that looks great and performs even better,
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!!!!
Rod is awesome! Great feel when fighting big fish. Awesome hook ups and rod give a really nice bend.
Couldn't be happier with this rod love how sensitive it is for those light bites and how well it handles head shakes through the ice. First day using it and have absolutely no complaints. Keep up the Great work Mr. Haataja
