Batson Rainshadow

Recommended Posts

A local shop is clearing out a bunch of inventory. I dont want to get ripped off. The rods are batson rainshadows. Nice cork grips. They seem really nice. Just looking for feedback on purchasing handmade tackle. Please no obvious statements. I dont mean to be rude but theres been alot of that. Thanks guys.

Depends on the series. Batson blanks range from $12 for some rx6 models to $100 and up for some of the RX8+ models.

Right, then there's the rest of the components and overall build quality to consider. Basically shop the same way you would for an unfamiliar brand.

Are the labels on the blanks? Does the person selling them know the person building them? Lots of unknowns to be able to adequately answer your question. If he does, ask what kind of guides are on the rod. After that if it reels good I say go for it if the price is right.

I have an RX8 XMB843-TC and a Rainshadow RX7 IMB843.  I like both.  The Rainshadow is the prettiest with red trim, so I put my Zillion 50th Anniversary on it.  Nice!  :teeth:  Great feedback with a 3/8 oz. spinnerbait with Colorado blades.  Can feel the vibration from the very start of the retrieve.  Something I can't say about a lot of my other rods.
