First Strike

Performance Features:

  • Our USA made, NFC, hand-sanded, naked-graphite blanks, do not hide blemishes and are on average 20% lighter than their coated counterparts.We hand-sand to avoid sanding into the fiber, damaging it and creating a weak spot.
  • Our in-house custom braided carbon-fiber grips save weight, add “feel” transmission, performance, longevity, and ISR Casting models feature split grips, while spinning configurations are finished with full braided grips.
  • All models feature the patented EDGE Rods reel seats.Our special offset ergonomic design, for our casting models lowers the reel position for better torque/rod roll control, increases casting accuracy, and enhances cradling of reel reducing wrist fatigue, allowing it rest in a natural position.
  • To improve the feel of rod sensitivity, a highly developed feel through reel seat is featured on the medium-light to medium heavy power rods, allowing direct finger to blank placement for maximum sensitivity when using our casting models.
  • Proprietary lock-nut for a vice-like grip eliminates rocking reels.
  • Minimum epoxy on guide feet reduces weight and impact to blank action.
  • Titanium frame with Zirconium insert guides are corrosion resistant (saltwater) and 40% lighter than comparable guides.
