It’s not winter yet, the water’s not hard yet even though ski season has begun here in Colorado. With our outstanding fall fishing weather, bright sun, cool days and even cooler nights you just know those winter days will get here soon. Need a reminder? Just look up at the snowy Rocky Mountain peaks and the last of the fall colors and you know it’s about time to get some new winter gear.
The three new Avid Glass Ice rods are designed for panfish and feature Xtreme-Flex solid fiberglass blanks with high-vis, flexible tips and super-sensitive carbon handles to detect the most subtle takes. They’re also made in the USA with foreign and domestic materials – and feature Kigan stripper guides and lightweight, low-profile running guides. The result is an ice tool quite unlike any previous glass rod on the market.
“Avid Glass Ice rods are easy to use and very effective”, says Jeff Schluter, St. Croix Rods V.P. of Brand Management. “Rather than relying on a built-in or after-market spring bobber, these rods have the spring bobber built in to our Xtreme-Flex solid glass blank. Knowing many ice anglers prefer this style of rod, St. Croix decided to build a better version of it. Our carbon handle offers improved sensitivity over cork or EVA, and the bright orange tip makes it easy on the eyes for seeing strikes. Creators of the ice industry’s only patented spring bobber rod and holders of numerous exclusive fishing rod technologies, St. Croix proudly offers three new Avid Glass Ice models, light power 26-, 30- and 34-inch rods, each retailing for about $50.
