Marty Stone Inks deal with iRod Fishing


March 14, 2012


Agoura Hills, CA – Professional Angler Marty Stone has agreed to terms with iRod Fishing, makers of the Genesis I, Genesis II and Air line of rods.  Initially there are three Marty Stone designed rods with additional models to follow in late 2012.  The series of Marty Stone rods will be a sub series of the 149.99 Genesis II line up. The Marty Stone rods will make up the Stone Cold lineup from iRods.


Stone expressed his desire to build rods that are both affordable and quality for anglers of all skill levels, “We have worked and worked to get these initial three Stone Cold rods exactly right.  I feel we have done that.  These rods are light, fast, strong, and incredibly sensitive.  They are also remarkably affordable. The quality of these rods is equivalent to the quality foud previously only in $300.00 rods.


The initial three rods include the Stone Cold Spook and Trap rod.  Stone designed this 7’4” rod specifically to handle top water spook style baits and lipless crankbaits.  The second rod Stone designed was the 7’3” Stone Cold Swimming and Vibrating Jig rod. The final rod of the initial series is the Stone Cold Square Bill rod.


When discussing his decision to partner with iRod Fishing Stone stated, “In coming back to professional angling I have hand selected the companies I want to work with.  I have worked for some great rod companies in the past and have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from those relationships.  Then comes Matt Newman, president of iRod Fishing, who is tireless in his meticulous efforts in designing fishing products to push the limit to the ragged edge. He has asked me to be a part of his iRod design team. I was humbled by his desire to have me as part of a very small and Elite team of pro-staff and rod designers.”


Newman is equally impressed with Stone, “Marty is not only one of the greatest anglers out there, he is also one of the best human beings I have ever met. Marty’s insight to designing rods is priceless. Utilizing his experiences, knowledge and attention to details has already and will continue to improve our lineup vastly.”


The Stone Cold rods are due to hit tackle stores in the next few weeks. Stone and Newman are already in the process of designing the next Stone Cold iRods for the lineup.
