The Best Rod Blanks on Earth

PARK FALLS, WIS. – Whether crafting a stunning, one-of-a-kind piece of art, a highly practical fishing tool, or anything in between, custom rod builders are always looking for ways to enrich their work. That might mean learning or perfecting a new skill or technique, committing to working with a new material or piece of equipment, or discovering new ways to work more efficiently. Ultimately, each builder wants to create better rods that look and perform beautifully – for themselves or their customers.

Rod Geeks exists to drive each practical or artisanal rod builder toward that end. Backed by St. Croix Rod’s 75 years of experience and expertise – Rod Geeks is incredibly proud to have helped support custom rod builders for nearly a decade by delivering the foundation on which they skillfully overlay their passion, creativity, and vision.

Rod Geeks offers custom rod builders the greatest selection of premium, North American-made fishing rod blanks available today. Precisely handcrafted with complete, vertical control in our state-of-the-art factories in Park Falls, Wisconsin and Fresnillo, Mexico, Rod Geeks blanks combine the very best in design, engineering, technology, and craftsmanship. Rod Geeks’ goal and commitment? Create high-quality, high-performance, pride-inspiring fishing rod blanks that our customers consider worthy of their talents.

In the same way that custom rod builders adapt to deliver improved products for their customers, Rod Geeks is evolving to provide even better service and an expanding range of product choices.

New Choices

Starting this year – right now, in fact – is adding all-new blanks featuring new materials and technologies in all the lengths, powers and actions necessary to deliver elevated performance to any project. This is in addition to existing favorites. Specifically, 2023 sees the addition of BASS 3 Series blanks, which have never been available to rod builders before. BASS 3 blanks feature a hybrid construction of premium, high-modulus SCIII carbon and exotic, super-high modulus SCVI carbon, matched with Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) technology and Taper Enhancement Technology (TET) to yield maximum power and strength with significantly reduced weight.

Moving forward, Rod Geeks will continue to offer customers new and previously unavailable blank options each year that incorporate the very latest materials and technologies.

Improved Service

As a custom rod builder, providing faster service is one way to deliver more value and satisfaction to customers. Builders want to understand what their options are for a particular build, and once they make a decision, they want their blanks as quickly as possible.

To this end, Rod Geeks has been making more and better rod blanks at both Park Falls and Fresnillo than ever before. We’ve also streamlined our distribution. Every Rod Geeks blank is now shipped from our brand-new Park Falls Distribution Center. The results of these changes are decreased lead and shipping times for the high-quality Rod Geeks blanks discriminating rod builders depend upon.
