With a rod for almost every saltwater application, The Black Steel rods have landed everything from rock fish to the largest yellowfin tuna ever taken on rod & reel. This composite rod utilizes E-Glass and graphite to create a strong rod with a slightly softer tip than our Super Seeker rods. An extensive line of blanks backup our finished rods to create a massive selection for custom rod builders and beginner fishermen alike.
*New for 2015: An average savings of 10% by changing the titanium guides to Fuji BMNAG.
Black Steel™ blanks are built from longitudinal 120g graphite carbon fiber, E-type fiberglass, and a proprietary resin bonding system that allows us to combine the two materials without fear of de-lamination. Our Black Steel blanks have been the standard in the industry. They have slightly softer actions to accomodate the use of braided lines with short top-shots but have the pulling power to stop the hardest fighting fish swimming. Unlike other composite blank manufacturers, we have an extensive lineup of different actions that meet the needs of the most discerning fisherman. There are a number of models that aren’t even built into our seeker finished rod lineup. Those are reserved for the fisherman who is looking for that specialty rod that no one else has. Black Steel blanks use a polyurethane* high gloss coating with UV inhibitors. This coating has been found to be the most durable and the most long lasting of any that have been used in the past.
