Bass, Crankbait

When durability is what you are after, look no further. The RainShadow E-Glass blanks offer superb strength. RainShadow offers a wide variety of rod blanks in the E-Glass series from ultra light power for catching trout/panfish, to multi-purpose crank bait bass fishing, to heavy duty boat rod blanks, and trolling blanks for the saltwater. The Bass Crankbait series is perfect for both the fresh and saltwater tournament/weekender, that need to win and win now! The durability and price point of the lighter weight SPG blanks are great for all rod builders. RainShadow’s E-Glass models are sought after due to low-modulus ratings and strength that is unrivaled. This translates directly into negating the demands of lightness and sensitivity; its ruggedness and lifting capability will astound you.

Review of GCB710MH 
“I just wanted to share a little information you may or may not be aware of already. A few weeks back I got a call from a customer for whom I had built one of my Canoe Creek fiberglass cranking rods using the GCB710MH Rainshadow E-Glass blank. He was calling to tell me that he had failed to strap it down on the front deck of his boat and had bounced it overboard in some rough water here on Lake Guntersville. He turned around and headed back to mark the spot with his GPS in hopes of being able to dredge the bottom and hopefully snag the rod/reel with a deep diving crankbait.  However, it proved unnecessary, as the rod was floating horizontally when he returned. He could not believe it!  Were you aware that this blank floated? Even with a reel? 


 Just another example of why I only use your products for ALL of my rod builds. “
