Marty Stone's Gear

Rods

  • The iRod Air Series Casting Rods are the lightest rods iRod has ever created. Featuring a special blank construction and premium components, they deliver the perfect blend of lightweight sensitivity, power and durability.

  • Literally designed, tested, created and used by some of the best pro bass anglers in the world, the iRod Genesis II Series Casting Rods build on the success of the originals - and are now a full 30% lighter.

Reels

  • Extremely lightweight - weighing in at only 6.7-oz - the Lew's Tournament Pro Speed Spool Casting Reels offer fluid function and serious power in a compact, easily-palmable design.

  • Offering cranking, high speed and super high speed models - all with the same weight and design - the Lew's Tournament Speed Spool Casting Reel Series offers consistently smooth and powerful performance at a moderate price point.
