The AF27C unit has a 4bb reel with a fold down handle and winter lube. The unit includes a 27" solid fiberglass Medium light rod with five guides built specifically for smaller fish and the ability to have a nice fight from the fish. The Automatic fisherman base and all the hardware are included. A new product that eliminates the line from freezing in the ice has been added to the system, it is called the Ice Stopper. The solution for the ice stopper product is included, it consists of a 8 oz. bottle of -50¼ solution that goes inside the reservoir and stops the line from freezing in the ice hole. This is a great system for Perch, Crappie, Blue-gills and shallow water Walleye and Northern, because you can adjust the slack of the bobber to match the mood of the fish from day to day.
