Our Current Bamboo Rod Offerings

Brookie Rod Series
 

Our one and two piece Brookie Rods are designed using our own proprietary tapers and range in line weight from 2 to 5, 1 to 2 sections, 5'6" to 6'0" length with pentagonal (5 strip) construction. This series of rods is our most economical series and all rods have a very smooth powerful medium action. Don't let the low price fool you; we make all our own blanks so no cheap Chinese blanks are used for any of our rods like some of the competition.

All Brookie Rods come in a quality rod bag and custom aluminum tube with solid brass ends complete with our name and logo (optional on one piece Brookies due to the extra cost). All models are available in natural blond bamboo color. Your choice of down-locking slide band or threaded barrel nickel silver reel seat hardware.

Custom/Classic Rod Series
 

Our Custom/Classic Rods are precise designs of some of the finest classic rods ever made. You can choose from rod tapers from any of the famous makers such as Garrison, Leonard, Payne, Young, Powell, Dickerson, Thomas etc. And using our own Rod Design and Analysis Software (http://www.RodDNA.com), we can make them in virtually any line weight, length, and any number of sections while preserving the original rods feel and action!

You can completely customize your rod. You start by choosing a contemporary or classic rod taper from our rod database of over 850 rod tapers, then choose the style and size of the grip, the color of the wraps and tipping, the color of the bamboo (blond medium or dark brown), specify a swelled butt, lighten the rod via hollowing, select blued or bright nickel silver ferrules, select the type of reel seat and select from exotic burl wood inserts, etc.
