Corey Sanden is the owner of MC Swimbaits and arguably the greatest innovator in soft plastic swimbaits in the entire fishing industry. His innovation in weedless bait technology and technique brought many Southern California fishermen their personal best saltwater bass catches. He developed the 8” MC Slug which many other manufacturers chose to duplicate. He then moved on to the 7” weedless bait which he says anyone can effectively fish and catch large inshore species, and large paddle tail baits called the “Viejo” series aptly named after his good friends on the tournament circuit.
These innovations in bait creation and selection required the same level of intense development on the side of the fishing rod. For many years, inshore fishermen used what they had available to them. Typically it was a graphite “trigger-stick” designed for freshwater bass fishing. With the use of non-stretch spectra lines coupled with high test fluorocarbon leaders on top of the stiff graphite rods, the system would react to the strike of the fish even faster than the fisherman. It all resulted in short strikes and lost fish. It was Seeker Rods who came to Corey with a solution. Utilizing the highest grade S-Glass and combining that material with high-density carbon/graphite created a composite rod that had the soft tip of a glass rod and the power of a graphite rod all in one. The sacrifice in weight greatly outweighs the effectiveness in getting the fish to engulf the bait.
That is the technology used in his Corey Sanden InshorePROTM signature rods. He and the team at Seeker have chosen a variety of rods built on S-Glass composite technology blanks that are built specifically with the inshore angler in mind. These light-weight rods are equipped with polished stainless steel Fuji guides, EVA Split-Grip handles, and graphite trigger reel seats. Undoubtedly the finest, most powerful American Made inshore rods in the business.
*Polyurethane coatings require the use of denatured alcohol during the clean up of the blank in lieu of the traditional acetone. Acetone is a polyurethane dilutant and will breakdown the finish of the blank. Please take note as our warranty does not cover the finish and use of acetone.
