Built for Lakers

Perfect rod for bouncing large tube jigs and bondys in deep water. Lots of backbone but still enough sensitivity to feel everything. Not my first Haat Rod and not my Last.

Jamie (Sault Ste. Marie, MI, US)

Yes, thanks for asking.
I set up the rod with a, Abu Garcia c3 bait casting reel with 15# power pro line. Fishing mostly deep water in Lake Huron for Lake trout. Depths anywhere from 40' to 200' and jig heads/buck tails ranging from 3/4oz to 3oz depending on the current. I like the length and stiffness of the rod. One thing that bothers me when jigging is the length of the handle. I have several other rods including custom made ones that all have a bit shorter handles and work well. Maybe rod handle lengths could be an option? Haven't landed many with this rod yet, but over all happy with the performance.
Thanks, Jamie

Big Lake Trout

The perfect rod for 30"+ lake trout. Landed more big fish last season because of it, other rods just could take the fight of the Big Macs. Would definitely recommend.

Best rod I've used

Sturdy, reliable, light, and strong. It is by far the best ice rod if not the best rod all around I've ever used. If there were full size casting and spinning rods available I know I'd use those too.

Great Rod

Extra Heavy Casting Rod has everything I was looking for in a big fish rod. I have used many different rods in the past from local rod builders to mass produced rods, and I think I have found my new favorite. This rod is sensitive! Rod handles big headshakes and big fish with awesome backbone. Customer service was absolutely amazing to work with and answered all my questions, even helped with some shipping issues, Michelle was extremely quick to respond to all emails. I don't see myself buying a different rod anytime soon. I am going to be ordering the Black Beauty as well.

Love my Haat rods

Got the 45" med heavy, and the 45" extra heavy. Great rods can definitely handle any fish I'll catch. Extra heavy rod has lots of backbone

Robert Wagner (Green River, WY, US)
Great Rod

This rod is well built. Eyes are big enough to help with ice build up, and tip is sensitive to feel the bite with plenty of backbone. It also looks great.

Justin (Fort Pierre, SD, US)
Excellent product

The medium heavy casting rod is my new go too. It is sensitive enough to feel a soft perch bite and has more than enough spine to handle those 30" eyes. I am looking forward to putting the extra heavy to the test with some big lakers but I have not yet had the chance. Both rods are excellent quality. the long casting handle makes the rod very comfortable to operate. Highly recommend these rods!

Patrick (Camden, SC, US)

Brought 2 of the 45" extra heavy casting rods to catfish with here in the southeast. I've hooked and landed 60 pounder's with them, man you talking about a fight. If I had to do it all over again I would. If you reading this review do yourself a favor and get one. You will not regret it those rods are Bad to the Bone.
