I had the opportunity to fish with Carl Graham a few years ago and still see him quite often

on Pickwick. Carl founded the company, but I believe the company was sold several years

ago.

Ummm, an hand made in the USA rod by stay at home moms is like an Ugly Stick?  I think you're thinking of another company.

 

They look pretty nice to me, good Fuji components, micros, split grips.  Price looks good, too, at under $200.

I thought you were going to ask which hammer would be the best to use on a couple of your rods.  :teeth3:

They are headquartered in Guntown, MS but are built somewhere in AR. I've held several of them and there is no way to logically compare them to a Ugly Stick or Rhino. They are great rods and will be what I buy next.

does Midsouth outdoors still air?

 

I used to find some old clips on youtube but seems to be really hard to find now.

No. I think the show was cancelled a couple of years ago.

Kent, I doubt the rods you sampled years ago are the same as the rods they are selling now.

I bet you are right. I think I will edit my responses on this thread.

I have not fished with the newer Hammer Rods.

 

Thanks John! That is a very good point.

Have you guys actually tried them? I am trying to compare to Duckett and Dobyns.. I have heard components and quality are much better than duckett. and  i have spoke with the owner.. he seems to be a nice guy.. compared to dobyns champ with the deal they have going on the 40% off the second rod.. will make these close in price for two rods.. just let me know and thanks!

I have not handled a newer model, but Hammer Rods usually have a booth at the outdoor

shows here in Memphis. Do you know any stores that carry the brand regionally? If there is

a store in this area I would be glad to check them out for you.

Here is a list,http://www.hammerrods.com/page.php?Custom%20Pages=5

 

Shane the owner said he may be able to get a demo my way.. but it might be awhile

 

 

The Pickwick Store in Counce, TN is a.k.a. Gants BP.  We have several members that frequent that store regularly.  If they have them in stock, someone should be able to check them out in the next couple weeks or so!
