Any of the ul's would be great for trout. I not only ice fish, but have flyfished from Alaska to New Mexico, so I have alot of experience figuring out what you can get away with when going after trout. Plus ul's are a blast!

Walleyes i fish this rod in a 27" Medium, this is using a decent sized spoon or a jiggin rap. if you are fishing a dead stick or lighter spoon or a normal lead head jig, i would use a ML rod. Great rods though. Crappin i would hightly consider getting a ST. CROIX Legend Spring Tip, in either UL or L. Those crappies can get pretty picky at times!

I would recommend the Medium. I have the ML and it's too light for an 18" walleye.

The actions on the Fenwick Elite-TECH Ice Rods range anywhere from a Ultra Light to Medium depending on which one is purchased.

Rods have great feel to them! Have fished a lot of preimum ice rods and this ranks right up at that top with the jason mitchells and st. croixs. Cabelas rods rank right up there at the top too! Fenwick rods are probably top of the line when it comes to sensitivity though, very nice! Also depends on what kind of handle you perfer too!

answer 4
extremely sensitive. i have a 28 inch medium light and it works great without the floppy tip where it shakes all around without even moving. i bought it for walleye jigging but after using it catching gills, i would not use anything else from now on.

You can't go wrong with the ML (Medium-Light) for an all around rod. It is tough enough for the walleyes, yet light enough for the crappies. If it were me, I would go with the 28" ML. Seems the longer you go in the ML's in this series, the more backbone the rod has. My 24" ML feels like a little lighter action than my 28" ML. (I just ordered the 26" ML so I can't speak for that one yet.) That being said, if you are mainly fishing for walleyes, the 28" ML would be a great choice. You will appreciate a little longer rod blank when fighting the larger fish such as walleyes and the occasional pike. Great rods for the price!

answer 3
Walleyes fishing heavier spoons or jiggin raps get the MEDIUM rod. Fishing a lead head jig or a lighter spoon i would suggest a ML. These rods are very sensitive and you will feel every little tap, expecially with a braid line (fireline crystal perfered). Gotta love it!

If your catching eaters I would say the ul's. I have landed up to 23" northern with my 23" ul. If you want a trophy you may want to go to the ml. The ul's would be great for the crappie light bite.
