Handmade specialist rod for trolling and of course catching big pike!
Through custom rod builder JVS Rods we offer a very special handmade trolling rod named ‘Viking’ in 2 casting weights (150g and 250g) for your big pike fishing! Fast parabolic action with a remaining sensitivity in the top, this powerhouse of 2.40m (8ft) length can easily cast and troll all your big baits and fight the biggest pikes in the lake. It’s not only super strong, but also forgiving when the pike stops the lure and fights to the extreme. Thanks to the carefully selected blank, your very own chosen customization and the professionalism in building by JVS Rods you will have a unique and exceptional rod for life! Chose the exact finishes from grip to guides, colors, logos and texts.

The ‘Viking 8ft 250g’ is ideal for trolling big rubber, swimbaits and big/deep running crankbaits. Also suitable for speedtrolling. Combining trolling and casting is perfectly possible with this rod.
The name ‘Viking’ was chosen as this specific rod was heavily tested and approved on the biggest loughs in Ireland.

These are the possible options you can chose:

1. CASTING WEIGHT: BLANKS Viking 2.40m – 8ft
Blank 250g : American Tackle (US) – The American Tackle blanks are rolled with multi-pattern materials and Japanese carbon under pressure with advanced resin systems to establish a refined action and sensitivity without making the rod bulky or heavy.  Stealthy durable “Black Satin” finish.

You can chose between EVA Duplon or Cork finish for the grip of your rod.

You can chose between standard FUJI (colour ‘ashgrey’) or Aluminium ALPS (color ‘gunsmoke’) reel fitting


You can chose between Gunsmoke or color for the cone and checks on top and bottom of the grip. Gunsmoke is often the most chosen option as this gives the rod a classy look and combines beautifully with the reel fitting. In case wish to have the cone and check in color, including black, the most chosen option is to go with the same color as the binding on the eyes. Gunsmoke comes standard at no extra cost, color has a fixed added pricing. This will be confirmed after you place your order.


5. EYES (9pc)
Delta Guided Eyes – snagless (American Tackle) (standard) : Super strong high quality eyes that are positioned at an 12-15° degree angle to the rod. Especially when casting this design avoids any tangling of line around the eyes. Matte finish.
