By Ice Hopper
Ice Hopper Extreme Taper rods utilize solid carbon or fiberglass blanks and fast tapers for the ultimate in tip sensitivity. The tips of these rods taper down to a needle like 1.0mm diameter to detect the slightest bite, but still have plenty of back bone to control trophy panfish. The stealthy clear finish on the solid glass blank and black guides won't spook bull panfish that are always looking up to feed. Reel cork handles minimize weight while synthetic burl front and rear trim provide functional elegance (19" uses EVA). These rods all feel amazing and are designed to perform and feel like rods costing 2-5x the $$$.
