Yea we got them at BPS they work well on smaller fish but the rods are really soft getting a good hookset on bigger fish would probably be pretty tough.  For my first ice rod its ok but I'm ready for something a little more powerful to help me land some big fish.  Maybe an ugly stick they seem to have the backbone that would be needed to set the hook on bigger fish.

hahaha...Honestly slayer I'm not sure how they would handle those bigger fish. I'll be buying a new rod tonight and just put my pflueger trion reel on it. If I didn't have a son on the way I'd be up there this weekend

buy a st croix ice rod or a lightning rod if you can find em, i'e had good luck with both of these, you have to tape your reel on but i actually like that better than the slip on ones, just dont be afraid to use a lot of electrical tape to firm it up, if you get a big fish and you don't have a lot of tape on the reel you will actually feel the reel trying to pull off, they make some good rods witha good feel to em.
