Our New Carbon Core Fishing Rods

Two people fish in a small boat during a sunriseThere are quite a few benefits to using a fishing rod made with carbon core technology. These rods have enhanced sensitivity that will transfer vibrations caused by a fish biting the hook through the rod so that you know exactly when you’ve got one. These rods are significantly lighter than most other kinds, which makes them more sensitive.

Despite a lightweight and flexible design, they’re also quite strong. Carbon is more resistant to breaking than other types of rods. Here at Signature Fishing Rods, we have a variety of new carbon-core rods made by Grandt Industries available on our website. The new rods are available in the following series.

Fin-S 22

Every rod in the Fin-S 22 series is made with carbon core technology. In making these, Grandt used high modulus high-strain carbon fiber and a unique layout to create powerful and sensitive rods with the best feel you’ve ever experienced and tremendous hook-setting ability.

These rods contain a carbon reel seat with a texalium inset, PVD coated CNC machined titanium guides, machined double-locking nuts, AAA cork grips and a polished carbon-ebony color. Best of all, it’s made in the United States and comes with a lifetime warranty. You can customize your rod so that your name or a phrase can appear on it. There are also handle alternatives available, as well as optional guides and other design choices.

Grandt Slam

There are also carbon-core rods available on our website now in the Grandt Slam Series. The carbon design ensures an incredible level of sensitivity. With a thinner diameter and reduced weight, these rods will likely be more sensitive than anything you’ve dealt with in the past. It also makes for a stronger rod that’s less likely to suffer damage.

This series contains high-quality components such as a splash back and silver reel seat design, AAA cork grip, PVD coated CNC machined stainless guides and a dark emerald green color. There are spinning and casting rods available in the Grandt Slam EXT series. These both have all of the features we’ve described and come with the appropriate handle and reel seat. The


Also available on the website now is the new Payara EXT Series. These rods are engineered to have an even higher level of sensitivity than you are accustomed to. The lightweight rod is made with high-strain carbon using uni-directional patterns. The rear section contains premium carbon twill, allowing for a softer and more parabolic action.

The rods in this series contain, AAA cork lightweight composite butt cap, AA cork machined grips, custom designed burgundy splash reel seats, PVD coated CNC machined stainless guides, wraps complimented with fine silk-matching, burgundy-colored thread and a translucent burgundy color. They’re available with optional full-feather weave, snakeskin inlay, carbon handles or standard wrap design. These rods are made in America, backed by a lifetime warranty and are available in all actions and powers.

Cuda Series

The new rods available in the Cuda Series have some similar characteristics to the rods already mentioned. The carbon core design simultaneously creates a more sensitive and more powerful rod. The design allows for a thinner wall diameter, uni-directional patterns and increased hoop strength technology. The engineering allows for faster actions and greater lifting power. They’ve added carbon twill to the rear section, similar to the existing Cuda rods.

Features of these rods include a high-strain carbon fiber twill in the rear, the ability to easily handle braid lines, PVD coated CNC machined guides, AAA cork grips with one-inch foregrip and straight-contoured rear grip, splash cushioned fixed reel seat with a unique graphite twill pattern, remarkable hook-setting power, fantastic sensitivity and a translucent dark marine blue color.
