JT Open Water Snares

SNARE- Technical description and specifications

All new to our open water line up is the addition of a long awaited SNARE! The snare rod utilizes our same world class proprietary Toray carbon fibers material in the blank build. The unique taper and special blend of materials achieves the perfectly balanced and engineered design for running live bait rigs with bottom bouncers or slip sinkers. This rod is also ideal for long line trolling crank baits and spinner rigs with or without snap weights. This technique specific design allows the fish to grab the bait with plenty of cushion and time for the ultra-soft tip to load up “snaring” the fish with little to no motion from the angler. The result is a far superior hook up and landing percentage.

The additional components of this rod include a state of the art Hero High Grade Alien reel seat coupled with a carbon fiber insert that makes direct contact with the blank for added sensitivity and feel transfer. The upgraded Hero-high grade eyelets complete with silicon nitride inserts, helps anglers maximize the rate line passes through for faster deployment of presentations and improved casting distance. We finished this impressive build with our proprietary full Sure Grip handle for the ultimate feel and control. The signature color of the Snare rod is smoke silver base with maui blue accents.

Our rods are made of a combination of domestic and foreign sourced components.

"Hands down the best rod for casting light jigs in the spring. The length on this rod allows for casting light jigs a mile without effort. Weather its casting a small jig and minnow or a smaller hair jig this rod is the perfect rod for the task. This is my go-to rod all spring. I pair it with a size 2000 spinning reel and 6-pound mono or braid and a short fluorocarbon leader. The sensitivity of this combo and its ultra lightweight makes it very easy to fish with all day. I have yet to hook a fish with this rod that left me thinking I was underpowered. This is by far my favorite open water rod offered by JT. "
Loving my JT Panhandler ice rod!! The sensitivity is amazing and paired with a Okuma C10 reel it is a joy to fish with!!
