    Re: Cashion Rods (Ranger va 1)

    I first saw them at the 2011 richmond expo. After talking with pat golden, i purchased a 7'6" mh for the carolina rig. I now own approx. 10, and love each on. Give the 6'9 mh cranking rod a serious look, it has been perfect for me throwing 1.5's and the like. I must be honest, I am now recently affiliated with cashion rods, but i honestly chose them as a consumer, and think they are an exceptional value. my .02

    Made in Pittsboro NC. Has an awesome warranty. Matt is as nice a fella you ever wanna meet. The rods are very sensitive. I have a 7 ft jig rod and absolutely love it. Pair it with a Lews reel and I am in jig throwin heaven. Put it this way...I love my Bill Poes rods...have a custom on a St Croix SCIII blank I was throwing jigs with for 6 yrs. It got demoted.

    I have one I won in a raffle. 6'10 spinning rod. Its ok but I wouldnt buy one over alot of the other rods in the same price range. Its not as sensitive as my crucial spinning rods.

    Love, love, love my Cashion rods. I bought my first one about a year ago and won't buy any other brand now. I've compared it side by side with $385 Loomis rods and prefer the Cashion. Best rod ever IMO.

    I was finally able to get out this past saturday and use my knew rod, 6'9 med-hvy worm rod. I actually tied on a L.C. jerkbait and it worked just fine.
    The rod is incredible, very well balanced and very sensitive. Also very light, you can use it all day with no fatigue. In my opinion, one of the best rods out there.

    Re: Cashion Rods (Robobass1967)

    Hate to say it but I wasn't impressed with em. I bought a 7' cranking rod from TW. I took it out of the rod tube and just didn't like it. The handle was just way to small and I have small hands. The action of the blank reminded me of a G Loomis cranker but it was so small at the end of the rod that I just couldn't see it standing up to a bigger fish especially around cover. Now that being said, I don't like the Duckett's or Carrot Stix either. Me personally, I'm just not a fan of the micro guides and the way the rods keep getting lighter and lighter. When you don't change the material used to make something there's only one way to make it lighter, yep less material. Hated that I didn't like em, especially since they are American made but they just weren't for me.

    Not to be nit-picky but Cashion actually uses a much different blank than a lot of manufacturer's. The graphite they use is linear, opposed to the more common spiral graphite.

    Matt Cashion has a Ph.D in in chemistry with a concentration in advanced materials, which is why his rods are different than a lot of others. Linear graphite is stronger than spiral wound, therefor you can use less and save weight without sacrificing strength.

    I checked them out at a show in January. They feel light and sensitive. The only reason I didn`t try one is that I do not like micro guides at all.

    I never had micro guides either. I finally bought a Cashion rod with them. I can zing a jig or a t rig a long ways. I got a 7ft MHF type (in boat so I cant remember model number). I bought another not long ago, a 7'3 MHF type with microguides. I love these rods. I talked with Matt a couple weeks ago. When I get more to replace other rods that I normally use braid with a flouro leader, I will get one with regular guides. He can make em either way. What I like best...he is local to me so if I have any problems, he is close. His manufacturing is local so people in the US benefit that work there, spending what they earn here and pay taxes here. Matt is a real good guy, family man, and works hard to make his business a success. Everyone has different likes/dislikes I know. But it is really important to me to buy products made here and by people who care about their customers.
