I'm gonna have to say a 32" Thorne Brothers Perch Sweetheart with recoil guides.

I would love one of those thorne rods...but im on a budget and the m or mh st. croix premiers are a great buy! All my walleye ice rods are premiers. Hope this helps

If people focused on whats important in life there would be a shortage of fishing rods.

I believe you should always give 99% that way there is always room to get better

I agree although I don't have the recoil guides on mine. I wish I did!

I've found a new favorite custom rod. It's a tuned up customs precision series medium light with recoil guides for about 20$ less than a comparable Thorne bros rod. I've got them in 36"34"&33" all of them have met and exceeded my expectations. The St. Croix premiers are great sticks but once you start using a custom you'll never look back

I have a 28 and 30, and love them! Even though I don't have recoil guides.

That would be my pick.

If you're going the 32" route, for me, the walleye sweetheart in a medium action with recoil guides would get a slight edge over the perch sweetheart. Both are about as good as it gets, with the walleye sweetheart giving you the ability to fish some larger baits a bit better. Personal preference at this point!

I started using Proline's Ice Pro rods last year ... I love them ... Graphite over fiberglass construction ... great feel and durability... And a great price.

My dad and I each picked up some Frabill Straight Line 27" combos this year and man do we love em. I dont know why they say for panfish? They have a great backbone! People must like them as they are sold out.
