NORTHLAND FUELS LONG ROD FEVER
NEW TWO-PIECE FIRE-TIP ROD BLENDS FISH-FIGHTING POWER
AND CONTROL WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF EASY STORAGE
Bemidji, Minn. – Long rods are all the rage with hardwater warriors across the Ice Belt, thanks to a variety of performance benefits that boost your odds of putting fish on the ice. Northland Fishing Tackle® fuels the fever this season with its new Fire-Tip Rod series, which includes five sweet extended sticks that feature the added convenience of two-piece construction.
“Long rods give you more power and control, accentuate the fight and work great with premium ice lines like Northland’s Bionic Ice® Braid and Bionic Ice® Fluorosilk,” says ice fishing ace and Team Northland® pro staffer Scott Glorvigen. “They’re ideal for stand-up fishing in large houses and hole-hopping outdoors.”
Unfortunately, the extra length makes one-piece rods hard to safely stow during transport. Thankfully, Northland engineers and pro staff collaborated to end storage headaches with the two-piece Fire-Tip series, which includes five models ranging from 36 to 48 inches in length and actions from ultra-light to medium-heavy.
“Built from solid carbon graphite, the new Fire-Tip series has the right actions and backbone to handle anything from panfish to lake trout and everything in between,” says Glorvigen. “Their blank-through-handle design is extremely sensitive, while the rubber cork handles are easy to grip in all conditions.”
Added amenities include a lock-down reel seat, high-visibility tip and premium guides that work with braid and mono. As a bonus, each rod comes with a protective sleeve. Fire-Tip Rods are also available as a combo, paired with a 5-ball-bearing spinning reel featuring instant anti-reverse, a metal spool and foldable handle. Rods alone retail for $43.39; combos run $74.99.
