Three new rods to hit the market in the next few weeks

AGOURA HILLS, Calif. – Professional angler Marty Stone has
agreed to terms with iRod Fishing, makers of the Genesis I, Genesis II
and Air line of rods. Three rods designed by Stone will hit the market
soon while additional models will follow in late 2012. The series of
Marty Stone rods will be a sub series of the $149.99 Genesis II line up.
The Marty Stone rods will make up the Stone Cold lineup from iRods.
Stone expressed his desire to build rods that are both affordable and
quality for anglers of all skill levels, “We have worked and worked to
get these initial three Stone Cold rods exactly right. I feel we have
done that. These rods are light, fast, strong, and incredibly sensitive.
They are also remarkably affordable. The quality of these rods is
equivalent to the quality found previously only in $300 rods.
The initial three rods include the Stone Cold Spook and Trap rod. Stone
designed this 7-foot,4-inch rod specifically to handle topwater
spook-style baits and lipless crankbaits. The second rod Stone designed
was the 7-foot, 3-inch Stone Cold Swimming and Vibrating Jig rod. The
final rod of the initial series is the Stone Cold Square Bill rod.
When discussing his decision to partner with iRod Fishing Stone stated,
“In coming back to professional angling I have hand selected the
companies I want to work with. I have worked for some great rod
companies in the past and have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge
from those relationships. Then comes Matt Newman, president of iRod
Fishing, who is tireless in his meticulous efforts in designing fishing
products to push the limit to the ragged edge. He has asked me to be a
part of his iRod design team. I was humbled by his desire to have me as
part of a very small and elite team of pro-staff and rod designers.”
Newman is equally impressed with Stone, “Marty is not only one of the
greatest anglers out there, he is also one of the best human beings I
have ever met. Marty’s insight to designing rods is priceless. Utilizing
his experiences, knowledge and attention to details has already and
will continue to improve our lineup vastly.”
The Stone Cold rods are due to hit tackle stores in the next few weeks.
Stone and Newman are already in the process of designing the next Stone
Cold iRods for the lineup.
