This is used in our light weight crisp action steadfast bass series. These fishing rod blanks come as a standard sanded finish with exposed graphite. HM is used to give lots of power in a small and lightweight blank. We found the perfect HM material that gives sensitivity without the breakage due to our HX2 resin system.

This is a great fiber used in fishing rod blanks for years. We use this fiber to give a lighter power than the HM products. This has been referred to as IM6, RX8, IMX and many other names. In the end our interpretation is it's all the same just another marketing game. Build your next USA made fishing rods on Thrasher!

This is where it all gets tricky! So we decided to go after the breaking point for fishing rod blanks . When you take a blank to failure you get to see the action under each pound until it breaks. This ultimately will give you a true "line rating range" Somewhere between the when you start to see the action of the rod and before it breaks. We now put a safe line rating that pushes the blank to it's potential without coming close to it's breaking point. This is why you should build usa made fishing rods
Like nature itself each design is different using different types of material, mandrels and amount of material. We can design 2 different fishing rod blanks with different material, mandrels and amount of material and give you the same action and weight but diameter might be different. We tend to focus more on the process then design........you give us all the feedback and ultimately are the final designer. At Thrasher we are fortunate to be associated with Brad Loomis one of the best process engineers in the industry. Build USA made fishing rods!

Welp, that's the secret to all this isn't it. When I started this process I didn't need to know much, but I did need to assemble a team that did. Our team boasts a lifetime of rod blank design and building, aerospace and material consults, lifelong fisherman and extremely detail-oriented tradesmen. We played with unidirectional fibers, we wrapped them in different directions, angles and layers. We considered terms like Helix, triflex and quad-core, ( it's all good stuff). We also have the ability to kick some dust in our resin and call it nanotechnology—we passed. A few months into the process the correct questions were asked and it was decided to get outside the box. We decided to work with the material manufacturers, we knew they would be happy to manufacture custom prepreg materials consisting of any fibers and resins laid out to our specifications. ( I know, I know, typical high level rod manufacturer sales tactic bullshit). After a few months and many thousands we had our material and went to work. The results are in and now available to everyone. If you want to see what Thrasher's are made of, watch our rod testing videos. If you want to know what makes them the best rods on the market, sorry, that's some top-secret shit. We give you some info on our blank source page but the rest is locked up.
