IKOS Hustler - 7', Medium Heavy, Moderate Casting

The IKOS Hustler is the perfect all-around crankbait rod. It handles cranks diving to roughly 15′ deep with ease. It also maneuvers easily around cover and the soft tip casts a mile when fishing open banks and points. Superb, buttery smooth action from the S-Glass construction while maintaining excellent sensitivity to determine crankbait placement around grass lines and bottom composition.

***Hustler does not feature an exposed blank reel seat due to the diameter of the rod blank***

    The Go-To!

    This rod is my go to for finding fish!! Throws light cranks exceptionally well, has great feel, and would be a toss up as my favorite rod in my arsenal. I own two if that means anything!

    Great small crankbait rod

    I bought this rod to throw smaller crankbaits. It has a soft tip with enough backbone to get the job done. I would recommend it for anything up to the 15ft range.

    Small crankbait rod

    The IKOS Hustler is very light for a glass rod. It will throw small flat sided crankbaits all the way uo to deeper diving crankbaits in the 15ft range.

    Cranking glass rod

    I like the fit feel finish of this rod. I will be ordering more. It got enough backbone so it doesn’t feel like noodle. Id recommend it and will purchase from them agin. It also arrived very fast

    Amazing rod

    Best crankbait rod I’ve ever used. Super sensitive, great parabolic bend when hooked up. Casts a DT series like a dream. Absolutely amazing rod.
