More to come when I get them out on the ice. Anyone else pick one up?
Widow Maker Rod from 13 Fishing
I also had a buddy pick one up earlier this week after holding mine, and he said he ordered his right from 13 fishing's website. I'm sure Gander and others will have them soon as well if they don't already. They might also have them in stores now? I haven't been to Cabela's in a few weeks but they were starting to get all the ice fishing stuff out last time I was there.
I've been fishing the 13 Omens for open water for a few years now, and love them. These rods have a higher grade toray graphite blank than those, which is crazy to me for an ice rod. The sensitivity will be amazing on these thanks to the blank.
My favorite part though is the line guides. For me, this makes or breaks an ice rod. I literally cannot stand icing of guides because I don't shack fish much. These have a brand new diamond coated line guide that no one has ever used for ice rods. The advantage is these guides actually shed water, so they wont freeze nearly as easy - this is a huge selling point for me. Can't wait to fish these things, now if we could just get some colder temps...
Can't wait to use them, ice is right around the corner!
