Honestly, for the price it’s wonderful
I generally find most ice rods to fast and light.. not enough backbone etc. This rod is generally the same but it’s only 12 bucks! For that price im just glad it hasn’t randomly shattered or the reel seat fall apart or something. Ive been using this rod for two years now and have caught up to a 7 Lb lake trout on it.
I use it as my second line with a live minnow. I have a ht clip on rod holder on a bucket of minnows a few feet from the hole im actively jigging. That rod holder is a little tight for some of my better fenwick rod butts, but this little cheapy fits perfectly. The tip is pretty sensitive and will move very slightly with the minnow swimming. With a bite it will dip dramatically. With a moderately loose drag and the soft rod, a fish can take the bait without feeling the setup.
I would not recommend this as a primary rod for pickerel or lake trout jigging , maybe fine for perch or something. As a second line its great but will bend in two on any decent fish. As far as i can tell its more durable than you’d expect for this price.
