      Lol. It's np Ed.. This rod here is an Abu Garcia 28in ice series.. How would I rate it? πŸ€”πŸ€” 11 out of 10.. THAT'S WHY I USE IT. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ good strong ...more hook set, but VERRY sensitive at the same time.. Work best for pan fish, pike was a great fight, and wouldn't be bad if I ran tougher line.. lol but 2lbs works best for me.
