The Custom Noodle Series has a soft tip, but ridged blank that allows for detecting bites while still ensuring positive hook sets. A High-Vis orange tip for detecting subtle hits is helpful while lightweight stainless line guides are durable. Comfort Fit cork handle is stock. The rods offer uniquely machined, ice fishing-specific soft tips for soft bites, from finicky bluegills, to heavier crappies, to thumper walleyes. Combo includes a custom ice-specific spinning reel with three ball bearings, aluminum spool, size 300.
