I have an ultra lite for panfish.Its a toss up which is my favorite for panfish.The Amplifier that is so sensitive that I can feel a fish fart,or my noodle rod.
You won't be dissappointed if you get one.They really do amplify the slightest bite.
I would suggest using it inside the shak so that you can fish with the gloves off to get the best feel.

I had one and loved it. They have great sensitivity. Lost it in a windstorm on MilleLacs earlier this year frown.gif Been looking to replace it ever since, just can't seem to find much of a selection left anywhere

I bought my third one this afternoon. I have a medium, light, and now, an ultralight. I am replaceing cheap rods with them. They are very sensitive in actual use on the ice.

I got a 28" Med/light and I love the rod!
I can feel every little thing.
It is almost a must to have fireline or powerpro on it. I does really increase the sensitivity.
I really like the blank, it has a nice soft tip will a strong back bone.
The med/light works great for perch, crappies, walleyes, and the occasional pike.
I would recommend one to anybody.

I've had one for a couple of weeks now and have caught perch, crappie, walleye and northern on it. Nice rod, I have seven rods and find myself grabbing the amplifier because it's so fun to catch fish on it.

Anyone find that their hands get cold holding this rod? The last time I checked, metal and cold don't go hand in hand. Probably a good choice for permanent houses that can stay warm. Just 2 cents.
Good Fishing to ya's

I use mine in a shanty, the handles don't get cold in your hand. When I first pick one up when I change rods it is cold but warms right up. I haven't found it to be a problem.

Ya after I hold it for a little bit it warms up right away.
I also find it fun to catch fish on it. Its definitly a rod I use every time I go out.
I still do think next year im putting a thorne bros rod on the "to get" list.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
