IRG693C - Lone Star Special

Designed by Harold “The Legend” Allen. Harold was looking for a rod he could use for almost everything and that he has.
This rod is great for shaking worms, fishing topwater, spinnerbaits and even jigs. If your looking for a all around rod in a
shorter package, this is it.

IRG693CC - Stone Cold Crank

Very similar to the Rip Rap Special but a bit shorter for fishing near and around overhanging trees and cover. Another
glass/graphite composite blank with a glass tip to help with casting and hooking nipping and slashing fish but also has the
graphite backbone to control the meanest of fish.

IRG6102C - Jerk Bait

Great all around jerk bait rod. Its Medium-moderate action will cast the small to 110 size baits a mile with keep em pinned
on even with tiny treble hooks.


A staple of every quiver this rod is perfect for all light to Medium fishing. It is a perfect rod for: worms, jerkbaits, poppers,
senkos and flukes and traps.

IRG703CC - Gabe's Rip Rap Special

Designed by Gabe for small to medium crankbaits and most reaction baits. Its composite of glass and graphite give it the
perfect soft tip to allow for casting and hooking reaction fish, but has plenty of backbone to turn the biggest of fish.


A good all-around heavy action rod for jigs, heavier worms and medium topwater baits.


A slightly faster version of the 704 for docks and overhanging cover. Great rod for jigs and light pitching' too.

IRG723C - Stone Cold Swim and Vibrating Jig

Designed by Marty Stone for Swim and Vibrating Jigs but also a great rod for most other reaction baits. The
tip is not only perfect for hooking reaction fish but also aids in effortless roll casting.

IRG733C - Lone Star Special

A longer version of the Lone Star Special giving it a little more tip. Great rod for bigger square bills, senkos,
small to medium topwater etc.

IRG734C - Stone Cold Spook and Trap

Designed by Marty Stone for the popular walk the dog type topwater baits and rattletraps. Also a great rod for
spinnerbaits etc.

IRG742C - Britt's Finesse Cast

Due to the growing popularity of using small swimsuits on light line, we converted the spinning version into a
casting version with a little more backbone for winding on hooksets.


One of our more versatile rods in the line up. It's perfect for topwater, spinnerbaits, jigs, c-rigs, pitchin' and
big worms.

IRG753C - Snyders'Smiper

Designed by Kayak Pro Rus Snyders for making long casts and covering water with rattletraps, spinnerbaits,
chatter baits, etc

IRG754F - Magic Stick

Originally designed as a frog rod but it became so much more. Similar to the IRG744C but with a bit more beef.
It's a great rod for frogs, toads, flipping, big worms, jigs and bigger topwater baits.

IRG764C - Junk Rod

Very Popular reaction bait rod in a Heavy. With it's moderate action it easily casts spinnerbaits, chatter baits and topwater
a mile with enough backbone to pull them out of any grass or cover.

IRG7633C - Crank Launcher Jr.

The little brother of the Crank Launcher, third was designed for mid-size crank baits and is also a fantastic rod for other
reaction baits. It has a MH tip that transitions into a nice parabolic bend with tons of backbone power. It will send your
baits out a mile and keep the fish on all the way in.

IRG775C - Flippin' Stick

A true Flippin' stick made to comfortably pick apart heavy cover, with a soft enough tip to make accurate casts, and enough
backbone to get them out.

IRG7113C - Crank Launcher

Designed for deep diving cranks but will work with mid-divers and larger shallow divers. Not your usual crank rod, this
rod is all graphite and is not whiny and soft like others. It's tip is strong enough to drive in a hook set, yet forgiving
enough to play the fish without ripping out the hooks. It will also cast any crank bait a country mile, which is needed
to get the big cranks down deep.
