Beaver Dam knows that panfishing is serious among hard-water anglers, but until now, ice anglers had to settle for rods that were not really made for them. The Custom Noodle rod was made with ice fishing in mind for anglers who want just that. Don't settle! Get serious with the Custom Noodle Series that is made JUST for ice angling. The Custom Noodle Series has a soft tip, but ridged blank that allows for detecting bites while still ensuring positive hook sets. A High-Vis orange tip for detecting subtle hits is helpful while lightweight stainless line guides are durable. Comfort Fit cork handle is stock. The rods offer uniquely machined, ice fishing-specific soft tips for soft bites, from finicky bluegills, to heavier crappies, to thumper walleyes.
