ffp Compound Rods
These rods are so sensitive you can actually feel the spinner blades in motion, especially on the lighter ones like the 20 pound rated S2720.
You really need to go out and do some practice casting before you go fishing to prevent way too far casting on the narrower streams. I've heard lots of complaints regarding lost lures from this very circumstance. (Lost in the brush on the other side because they didn't take the time to learn more about the easy casting distance.)
Catching more fish because of the sensitivity of the rod, and it feeling any changes in line tension, and how fast you are into the backbone strength when setting the hook. Considerably less missed fish with the Compound Rod.
Less weight on the end of the line, for longer casts, makes it easier to control the depth you work during the recovery of the line. This, in turn, makes it easier to work various depths and, as a result of that, find more fish.
Let's take a look at what some of the Compound Rods there are. We'll start with what I have on hand, then take a look at some of the other models we've built in the past. If it's not "on hand", you'll need to do a special order for your rod of choice. Just contact me first and I'll let you know if I can build right away, or I'm waiting for supplies and it may take a while before I can get it done. The order forms are below the listing of on hand rods.
On hand as of 8/1/2011
This is a 2 piece, in-line, 5' rod rated for up to 10 lb test line. Casts surprising distances, extremely sensitive with a great backbone strength. (Lots of folks have tested this at shows and were blown away with how well it worked.) Soft tip but immediate hook setting strength with a short flick of the wrist. List Price $195
This is a 2 piece, in-line, 6' rod rated for up to 12 lb test line. Because of the Compound tip it casts great distances, has outstanding sensitivity and works some pretty good sized fish with no problem. Like all of the other Compound Rods using this one will increase your catch rate! List Price $215
2 piece, in-line, 7' rod rated for 20 lb test line. Look at the eyes and you'll notice that these aren't laid out in the usual pattern you find on most rods. This is done for better performance from the rod, increased backbone strength and the ability to handle fish you go after with 20 lb test line. Just another of the "unconventional" aspects you find in the Compound Rods. List Price $235
This is a 3 piece, surf style rod, with 2 different tips, 13'(+/-) rod rated for 30 lb test line. The longer tip provides a "softer" feel while the shorter tip is a little faster, but both maintain the same level of sensitivity and casting ability. This was first done as an experiment but proved to be a really great surf rod. Only have one but will build again if requested using the Special Order process. List Price $395
To purchase one of these rods please contact me first and Iâ€™ll let you know if itâ€™s still "on hand", or it has been sold and I just haven't had the chance to update the list.
