The New John Crews ICON Signature Series is the cultivation of hours and hours of design. Tirelessly testing and pushing to the limits to give you a rod worthy of an elite performance. Taking the experience of the ICON series, molding it with the experience of Elite Series angler John Crews. Creating the John Crews ICON Dropshot Rod.
If you have not heard of the dropshot rig, then you have been living under a rock. This technique has been taking the bass world by storm the past few years and has proved to be the way to catch big ones from north to south and east to west. This finesse technique is one you do not want to ignore, because it could be the difference maker of winning that tournament. This 7’4″ Fast, Med-Hvy spinning rod is the perfect length for when laying into those bass. This helps keep the small hook pinned just right, making it easier to land feisty smallmouth on those northern lakes.
Using our American sourced pre-preg with an engineered and upgraded epoxy; we have created one of the lightest rod blanks on the market today. Our ICON blanks are un-sanded, which helps protect the blank with an epoxy encapsulation on top of adding a signature look with added impact resistance. The John Crews ICON Dropshot rod still has the signature red/black Cashion carbon fiber / fiberglass grips and the bait keeper near the butt to keep the weight from swinging around. John Crews decided to go with the American Tackle Microwave guides to not allow wasted energy and give you even more distance on your casts. A comfortable exposed reel seat that cover’s the rivets but does not sacrifice the feel of the bite in any way.
** All rods are designed and built right here in Sanford, North Carolina, USA
