I took my rod out fishing on St. Clair River to see how well it would handle out there. My second cast I hooked into a 29” Freshwater Drum. The rod handled that fish beautifully!! I was super impressed. My brother was also intrigued because it handled that fish so well. His very first fast he caught a 13” walleye. He was so thrilled he said he will be purchasing a MAGS rod. The fact that I was using MAGS’ panfish rod and was able to handle these two fish extremely well means I will be buying many more of their products!! Everything about the rod is 5Star+.
Rod arrived well packaged in sturdy tube with bubble and a plastic sleeve inside. The custom colors look fantastic and the blank was straight with the eyes placed perfectly. Got to use it on panfish and some walleye under 20". The rod performs beautifully in both scenarios, great sensitivity and just the right action. I will buy again in the future.
This is my second open water rod and I love it!! My first few rods are ice fishings rods.. I have sent other friends your way.. We all love your attention to detail and such good craftsmanship Keep up the Great Work!!
Put the custom panfish rod to work!! Love this rod!! Great rods, great customer service and I can call and talk to them if I need to! Looking forward to adding more Mags rods to my rod locker!
Above and beyond the best fishing poles I have ever used the custom panfish rod is my 6th mags rod that I have ordered and probably won't be my last!!! The sensitivity is like I can feel the fish sniffing the bait and the fast tip is amazing.
Great rod can’t wait to use it!
Can't wait to use my new panfish rod! Looks great and came faster than I thought it would!
lightweight... sensitive... powerful... WOW!!! Handles big crappie with ease!!! Simply AMAZING!!!
Amazing rod fast shipping great quality
Haven’t got to fish with this rod yet but wow is it nice can’t wait to put it to work
Rod is awesome. Very sensitive. Brought home a bluegill dinner for the family on the first day out with it!
I was amazed how little time it took to take delivery of a custom made rod. The rod looks great and performed well on its first fishing trip. The sun shirt was a really nice bonus! I first heard about these rods from guide Bret Alexander and decided to make a switch from St. Croix rods for a number of reasons. I see no reason to go back.
Absolutely love it. Exactly what I wanted. Light action detects those finicky pannies!
Great rod, love the grip. Wish it had a stronger backbone and faster tip. Other than that it’s a great rod. High quality build.
This rod is insanely sensitive and has a hook setting ability like nothing I’ve ever used!
My panfish rod has great sensitivity and can handle bigger fish that I'm not targeting. I'm not worried about it not performing.
I had purchased another rod didn't like the idea of it possibly snapping on an occasional bass or pike and looked at reviews of this rod and saw a couple of large fish that were landed on it. I've got 2 ice fishing rods that are great so I returned the other rod and bought a custom rod for the same price. Better feel,custom colors,guides are way better. Just waiting for open water to put it to work.
Massive lake superior smallie hitting the scales at just under 8 lbs! Caught on the panfish rod fishing for perch.
Pro tip: Walleye like big ass dread buns This was the first Walter caught on my new dreamboat of a rod from @magscustomrods
