This is the ultimate perch fishing tool. A firmer tip yields superior sensitivity and the power to tame larger panfish jigs, spoons, and swimming lures. The rod and reel load perfectly for fish of all stripes, including those beloved jumbo perch. The sensitive Light IceRod has technique specific actions and durable aluminum oxide guides. The solid cork handles are sized and shaped for comfort. It is matched with a feature-rich spinning ice reel built to perform in arctic-like conditions. The reel's freewheeling performance is driven by three ball bearings and one infinite anti-reverse bearing. The machined aluminum spool has a durable titanium nitride lip. The silky smooth drag system will not stick or seize up and Frabill's proven Sub-Zero gear lubricant keeps gears cranking through the bitter cold.
