Today’s rods are high-tech tools that have moved the industry forward
at a rapid pace in the past few years. For shoppers, it’s a bounty
unheard of just a few years back but it can also be a multi-headed snake
when faced with the task of expanding your arsenal. Even more daunting
is the fact that regardless of how light and responsive a given rod is,
it may NOT be right for the particular reel, or series of reel, you plan
to add to the rod. The RIGHT rod is one that performs at optimum levels
for your particular reel and style of fishing. Doss
Custom Fishing Rods will build you a rod that offers
excellent performance for your needs and your fishing style.
Determine In Advance What You're Looking For
You shouldn’t shop for a fishing rod like it was a
tomato. You’re not looking for good color and nice feel. You’re looking
for performance! Consider what it is you want to catch, what pound test
line you plan to use, what type of lures you intend to cast, what kind
of line you will be using; braid, mono or flourocarbon and finally,
consider the length that will best fit your application.
By taking this first simple step, you’ve narrowed your search considerably before you ever leave the house.
Advanced Reinforcing Technology™ (ART™) is an exotic carbon fiber material that adds a magnitude (10X) of strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight. ART significantly improves the hoop strength of the blank by preventing it from deforming or “ovaling” under a severe load, such as a powerful hook set or fish battle. ART is also a critical part of our slim-profile ferrule design.
