The new 18-inch St. Croix Avid Glass ice fishing rod has been designed so that anglers can detect bites without the use of a bobber.
The Park Falls, Wisconsin-based manufacturer says its premium X-treme Flex solid glass blanks are ‘super’ strong and more flexible than carbon fibre.
“The carbon handle is designed from very light materials that help transfer energy and vibrations, making it ‘super’ sensitive,” said Jason Brunner, St. Croix Rod’s Director of Engineering. “The rigid handle also keeps the blank from flexing back into your hands when fighting a fish. That gives the angler more control and power.”
The Avid Glass also features a Kigan stripper guide and low profile running guides. Keeping guides close to the blank allows line to travel with reduced resistance when the blank flexes.
“It is a perfect rod for sight-fishing panfish or fishing in tight spaces,” added Jeff Schluter, Vice President of Brand Management. “The entire Avid Glass ice rod series is popular because they are simple to use, effective and great fun to fish with such super-flexible blanks.”
Designed and built at its US headquarters, the rod retails at $50 (US) and comes with a one-year warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service.
