Got Hooked on Fishing These Surf Rods!

Years ago i spent $2G on 4 surf rods similar to these rods at a local fishing tackle shop in town. I couldn't believe how weak i was to do that (they did have an AWESOME salesperson who knew my weakness). They were good rods but when i broke it down i found them extremely over-priced. So i designed my own style of Surf Rod that incorporated everything i've ever wanted in a rod & projected a reasonable retail price for it. I wanted to fish the shorelines with an excellent inexpensive surf rod that wouldn't break the bank that i could travel with in a case.

This remained a project on the board until i met Jeff Robles of JRA. He liked some of my ideas and drawings. He then introduced me to John Bretza of Okuma who thought this might be a worthwhile project to follow. John did the work and sent me prototypes to follow-up on. After 6-months the final version was unveiled at the Izuo Brothers Product Show. It was there that Brian Kimata of Brian's Fishing Supply suggested the final alteration.

Finally the end product was finished. It was made through the combined input of some ingenious anglers & product designers. And the MSRP was a fair price. I'm glad that others can benefit from this versatile Surf Rod!
