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***

    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.

    Best crank bait stick!!

    I love this rod!! Perfect power for slinging crank baits and lipless and perfect action for holding the fish on so they don’t throw the bait. Strong and smooth. Best crank bait rod I have ever used. Definetly my go to for square bills and medium diving cranks and treble hook baits.

    You like a crankbait? You buy this rod now cowboy!

    Paired this dude up with a slx dc 150, and it will cast some light cranky dudes quite a long ways. Caught a 3 - 3.5 pound largie and it felt awesome. This bad ass dude is really sensitive, not just for a glass cranker but in general! WAY more sensitive then the Edge by Gary Loomis rod that I bought at the same time. BUY NOW YOU BUY ROD NOW!
