The Ike Signature Series of rods is the result of 3 years of intensive research and development with Elite Series Pro Mike Iaconelli. We worked directly with Mike to design and dial in specific actions that cater to his fishing style. The blank construction consists of 36 ton high modulus graphite for the majority of the series along with some unique, high strain glass (HSG) cranking rods.36 Ton graphite for a lightweight balanced design and increased sensitivity. Fuji reel seat for greater comfort. Stainless steel guides with Zirconium inserts.
