Is this what you mean? If so, I think they are no longer making rods. Don Iovino used to offer rods made by them on his website, but has since switched to Lamiglas.

those are the rods I saw them on there own site. U can get 3 for 90 bucks. U got to wonder they make it sound like u would throw your loomis in the lake. I would have to think u get what u pay for. But then again what do I know. Realmech would have to pump 1 rod out every 3 min to make any money at that rate.

I would run far, far away.  Any rod company that tries to convince me super-low modulous graphite (24mil modulous im-6) is the way to go and far superior to high modulous/high strain graphite should definitely raise a red flag  :o.  Here is a quote from their ebay auction...


  "All rods are made from 24 ton graphite (IM6), because most agree that higher module graphite is not only inferior in casting control, flexibilty, and durability, but also the much higher cost does not justify the teeniest of weight reduction and supposed sensitivity. Also, higher modulus graphite rods tend to break more often than IM6 because they are more brittle."


Teeniest weighty reduction?!  Supposed sensitivity?   ;D ;D ;D
