Designed from the core with features to perform in all hard-water environments, the Convergence Ice spinning rods are equally fit for hopping holes in sub-zero temperatures or long sessions in the hut. Shimano packed the Convergence Ice series with angler-minded features to create maximum enjoyment and performance while on the ice. The Ultra-Light and Medium-Light models feature a custom-shaped AA cork Tennessee handle and an orange, hi-viz tip section for enhanced bite detection during even the subtlest of bites bite. The 40MH and 42H models feature a flat custom-cut EVA rear grip to provide extra leverage for bracing against the forearm when fighting larger trophy-class fish. All models in the Convergence Ice series feature Zirconia guides, while the Ultra-Light, Light and Medium-Light models also incorporate lightweight coil guides. Thoughtfully located, Shimano placed the hook keeper a bit further from the reel seat to provide a more comfortable zone for direct finger placement on the blank for improved sensitivity. Engineered with purpose and to better match angler preferences, Shimano built the new Convergence Ice series with features to maximize performance.


Reinvented for the modern age of ice fishing, the Sienna Ice Combo is offered in an arsenal of actions designed for all creatures that lurk below the ice. Sienna Ice rods now feature a new streamlined grip and a reel seat that reduces excess material to allow for better balance and a more comfortable grip, ultimately providing a lightweight rod with enhanced sensitivity. The EVA foam handle increases the rod’s durability to allow for years of fishing. The ultra-light and medium-light models of Sienna Ice feature an elongated hi-viz tip section for easier bite detection when fishing with light lures or jigs for panfish and walleye. These models also feature Aluminum Oxide guides as well as coil guides for decreased weight when fishing with lighter lines. Medium and medium-heavy models also feature Aluminum Oxide guides for increased durability when fighting larger fish. Available as a combo or as the rod by itself, the Sienna Ice is ready to challenge the elements.
