Holding an ice rod for hours takes a toll on an angler’s body. The lightweight 13 Fishing HCG Ice Spinning Combo addresses this issue with the rod’s Evolve Hybrid Comfort Grip handle, which is specially contoured to nestle into your hand snugly for all-day comfort and fatigue reduction. Altogether, the HCG Ice Combo is a well-matched, fun-to-fish setup. The reel has an all-graphite body and rotor, aluminum spool, 2 ball bearings with instant anti-reverse, and a Soft Touch handle knob for easy control even with cold, wet hands; converts easily for either left- or right-hand retrieve. The 13 Fishing rod is built on a strong, forgiving solid fiberglass blank and features tough stainless steel guides with polished inserts for smooth line flow.
