Daiwa Mike Iaconelli Rods

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has had one of these rods yet. Looking at getting me a new deep crankbait rod and they have a 7'8. Was wondering if anyone has got to use this rod yet.

From Glenn's pictures and the ESPN footage it doesn't even seem that Ike likes using them. He had one on his deck and seemed to primarily use the older Daiwa Light n Tough series.

Here's Glenn's pics showing Ike's front deck, not a single Ike rod.

Yes the video where he is just talking he says he used the Ike rods, however if you watched the actual ESPN coverage showing him fishing then you would've recognized that the rod he was pitching that tube with was A Daiwa Light n Tough. Those two rods do not look similar so it was not confusion.

is it possible that he used different rods on the day of the tourny i think those pics are from practice right? i dont see ike lieing in an interview about what he used. i also talked to ike at the worcester fishing and hunting show and he said he would be using his line of rods in the classic.

Again, watch the live coverage. He was clearly using a Light n Tough. I really like Ike. But pros put their names on products to make a little extra pocket cash. It happens.

The Daiwa Ike rods are probably nice for the price, but Ike uses the Steez rods 95% of the time.  Just because he uses a higher end rod doesn't mean he can't endorse/recommend a rod that is less expensive for everyday anglers.

It is pretty evident that he used the L&T at least during the times at the Classic he was on camera actually fishing.  That doesn't mean he didn't use anything else, or that he may not be on tape using something else, but everytime that I saw he was using the Light and Tough.
