Each LakeLady rod is crafted from the finest components available and designed to provide maximum performance while reducing weight and friction. Quality components affect the longevity and durability of your rod. LakeLady Rods feature blanks from St. Croix, Batson and others.
An inherent feature in all modern composite rod blanks is the spine or backbone. A rod that twists out of alignment, moving right or left while under stress or one that delivers the cast “off target” is a rod that was built without consideration of the spine. A properly tuned rod will be spine-oriented to achieve optimum accuracy and responsiveness.
World-class components from ALPS and others, line guides with ceramic inserts start the process. These guides are created from space-age technology some with titanium frames. The choice of guides can reduce weight and friction and when properly placed, they can produce dramatic improvement in casting length and accuracy. Torque or twisting of the rod can easily be managed with guide alignment techniques. This is especially true with casting rods.
A custom rod is a fishing tool, but can also be a work of art. Beautiful figured wood, cork and feather inlays, fancy geometric thread wrapping or weaving combine to create the uniqueness of a custom rod. Choose from handles and reel seats of custom-formed burl cork or lathe-turned, exotic or native stabilized burl woods such as Black Ash, Box Elder, Maples, or Exotic Burls from around the world. Or space-age light weight metal CNC produced seats.
While beauty does not improve function, it does improve pride of ownership beyond all proportion to cost. The choices are many, from subtle wrap tipping and highlighting to exotic colorful woven art. Accented with your preference of colorful wrappings and coated with special protective rod epoxy.
Each rod is inscribed with your name or nickname. It will be delivered with the builders original signature and a unique serial number. They also will arrive with a custom embroidered “rod sock”with the anglers name embroidered.
