I was pulling up nice little ditch pickles thru the hard water all day putting in work until my 27" im 6 medium light tip broke. It was just unfortunate and not a kastking quality issue. The customer service I got was unreal! Replacement to in the mail so fast I was able to fish with it again before the ice melted! I love kastking products and their support is top notch!
I've bought 2 Kastking Konvert series rods and reel combos in the last month or so. I've been throughly enjoying the medium tip rods, and the reels are superb! The Medium Light rod tips are another story though. Both Med Light rods have had the guide on tip break off on the first use! When it happened the first time I thought it was s fluke, so I ordered another set. The first time I took the 2nd Med Light rod ice fishing, the tip broke off also. I don't know if there's a defect in these Med Light tips of these rods or what, but I am very disappointed. As I said, the reels are superb, as is the Medium power rod. Just beware of the Medium Light tip!
I got this rod and the Spartacus II 2000 reel for christmas. Just took it out on Lake of the Woods for a weekend of Ice Fishing. It preformed awesome. I could feel if the walleye were just barely holding on or if they had the hook in their mouth. I'm usually a guy with my old rods to Shank the hookset over and over. With this rod, I hardly missed. I pulled probably 40 fish through the ice over the weekend with this combo. Best part for me is it preformed well and a 2 piece since I have to Fly from the south to MN. If fit perfectly in my suitcase.
This rod/rods are much better than I expected. Sensitive tips with strong backbones. The only negative is the reel bands that came with it. Two of the four broke when trying to mount my reel.
My frist twin tip style pole, I have to say it's a very solid feeling pole. Especially for a ice rod. Definitely going to try the light tip first. But, as always KastKing you've done it again.
