Rod Companies that make their own blanks in USA

Recommended Posts

Besides Falcon, Seeker, St. Croix, Lamiglas and G. Loomis what other rod makers build the majority of their bass rods on their own blanks in the USA.....or am I wrong and even these companies get there blanks elsewhere. I say majority because I know some of the Falcon low end saltwater rods are made in China while all there high end stuff in USA, St. Croix low end is made in their own plant in Mexico.......

ALX rods and their blanks are made in the USA. I believe Hammer Rods are as well.

A little poking around on a rod building forum produced the following list. These are blanks, not finished rods, and some of the companies listed also import their lower end blanks.

St Croix

North Fork Composites

Steffen Brothers

Sage

Scott

Winston

Orvis

Talon

Lamiglass

Calstar

Seeker

Mystic

Liberty

Batson

St Croix, Hammer, ALX (Hydra), Kistler uses proprietary blanks made by NFC - Power Tackle uses some too. I'm not sure Falcon produces their own blanks. Once upon a time they used Shikari blanks. Phenix blanks are manufactured over seas. The only Rainshadow blank produced in the States us the best RX9+ Eternity.

Batson's blanks used to all be made in china (most  still are ) but some of the newer ones are made over here . people ought to remember that they produce a lot of blanks for major rod companies , which ones they can't divulge but it's a lot ...

Thanks, Does ALX make their own blanks???

ALX uses Hydra blanks. I copied this from the FAQ on their website:

Q: Are your rod blanks really made here in the USA?

A: Our NG Series rod blanks are 100% made in the USA. We source a US made prepeg and then build them to specs here in the USA
