Every Rod Forge fishing rod is built with an emphasis on quality and reliability. For this reason, we test 100% of our blanks before they ever leave the factory.

For multi-piece rods, we also provide replacement sections as a fast and less costly alternative to returning your rod or blank for service. Additionally, replacement sections can be carried as spares for travel.
