Blue Ridge Rods
Ridge Tail Water, Balsam Mountain and Caster Series Rods and blanks
Tailwater, Balsam and Caster Series
; Revolutionizing value and performance for custom built rods.
Rods proudly introduces three new series of four piece rods and
blanks, completely reworking our product offering:
Ridge Tail-Water Series Rods and blanks. Extremely light, fast
action rods and blanks designed for fishing. Continuous external taper,
combined with multi internal tapers and multi-modulus graphite, these ultra
light, fast action rods are designed to work at rated line weights.
They handle great at 30' and can shoot line 100'. Built with our TiCh
ceramic guides, custom grips and nickel silver reel seats with mortised
exotic wood inserts, these rods are truly top of the line
at value prices. These rods are
comparable to "commercial" rods selling for over
$600.00. Try it, you will like it!
Blue Ridge Balsam
Mountain Series Rods and blanks. Very light, moderately
fast action rods
and blanks for the angler that has a more relaxed casting
style. Designed like the Tail Water Series, these rods combine multi
internal tapers with state of the art graphite and resin systems to produce
a rod that is equally at home throwing 30' or 100' of line.
Built with ceramic stainless guides, nickel silver plated reel seats with
fine wood inserts and flor grade grips, these rods offer more value than any
other rod on the market.
Blue Ridge Caster
Series Rods and blanks. Moderate to moderately fast action
rods and blanks, built with the same care and craftsmanship of our higher
modulus rods and blanks. These are perfect rods for the beginner
because they offer quality and castability upon which good casting habits
can be built. The Caster Series offers value found nowhere else in
high quality, custom built rods. Built with stainless stripper guides
with blue rings which match the color of the blank, single foot wire guides
and reel seats with exotic wood inserts, these rods offer the most
value of any rod in the $150.00 to $200.00 price range.
