Ok after drooling over the Gaffight Ice rods I have been able to get my hands on this year I finally made the trip out there this Saturday. Totally knew what I was looking for before I was there. Couldn't wait had the reel with me as I was planning on using my new lucky rod for the afternoon bite.
As I walked in I was made to feel as though I had been a life long customer. Brent is a great guy spent time with me talking about fishing what kind of a fisherman I was, getting to know my style. So I had the rod picked out..... Until Brent started making suggestions and fitting my reel on some stuff that "I just HAD to feel". Ended up going with a tight-liner rod and as much as I knew it was a great rod and I would love it I still was kinda of like "I cant believe this is the rod I bought. I was not what I planed on, I knew what I wanted, and I did not get what I came in for. BUT I KNEW I had a rod that I was gonna love.
Got out for the evening bite with my new LUCKY rod and let me tell you this thing is AWSOME!!! I can't believe how much I love this rod. I caught every thing from dink gills to slab Gills and crappie to about a 2+ lb bass and oh boy talk about fun.
Brent got to know what I was after and put what I needed in my hand.
Great Shop, Great Guy, EXCELLANT craftsmanship!!!! This rod I ended up with is so stinkin sensitive I can literally FELL when a 2" gill is SMELLING my jig.....................
If you don't have a Gaffight you need one Period!!!! Its worth the trip to spend some time at the shop!!!
