Just ordered 2 tuned up custom rods, anyone in the icefishing community have any opinions on these?? Am I getting the bang for my buck. I normally fish with the frabil rods, just want some input. Thanks

Have you ever looked at Thorne bros custom ice rods? I’ve been using them for 7-8 years now and they always get the job done. Not sure where yours are made but tb are assembled one at a time in Minnesota. It feels good to support American workers.

You will be more than happy with those TUCR rods. Which models did you get? You will definitely notice a difference between the Frabill and custom rods.

Anything custom is probably better. I have Thorne Bro and they are similar. You'll be happy with them.
