The Abu Garcia Ike Signature Series Rods are a result of three years of intensive research and development with Elite Series Pro Mike Iaconelli. These signature rods were designed directly with Mike to dial in the specific actions that cater to his fishing style. The Delay Series blanks (made for winch reels) consist of high-strain glass (HSG) construction, which creates a parabolic action that's ideal for crankbait fishing. EVA split-grip handles provide a comfortable hold that lets you spend all day on the water. These rods also feature tough, lightweight Fuji reel seats, stainless steel guides, and Mike's unmistakable cosmetics that set them apart from the competition. Long Cast Delay: 60% Backbone/40% Tip.
