Any advice on a new noodle rod. I broke the tip on my gander mountain rod a couple of days ago trying to get ice off the LINE, dont ask me how that happened. Anyway this is the second one I have broken and am looking to get something with a little more quality. Thinking about the shimano clarus from cabelas ($90) in a 9ft ML action. It has a lifetime warranty thats why I'm leaning towards that one. Any other quality rods you would recommend?
