I have been making ice rods for a number of years now and have been getting request for open water rods. I just need help narrowing down some blanks. I was hoping you will be willing to share your experiences and what blanks you use for a dedicated purpose (for walleye or bass).

Take a look at the Batson - Rainshadow rod blanks.
In their catalog, you will find just the blank that you need.

In particular, the Immortal and the Eternity blanks have been well received by the Walleye crowd.


Good luck

Hi Michael,

Rodgeeks blanks are all St. Croix designs and materials (they are our partners), and are a hit with Walleye and Bass fishermen. You can check our our selection here: [rodgeeks.com]

They can be ordered right on our website, and wholesale is available if you have a legally established business.
