Salmon/Steelhead, Casting/Spinning

Our RX6 blanks utilize the baseline standard modulus graphite material. Of course, the word “standard” is used a bit differently for RainShadow. Over time, RX6 graphite has been improved by enhancing both fiber design and the resin systems. RX6 is now as refined as ever, offering enhanced sensitivity to feel every bite, and added strength for brute lifting power. The possibilities are endless with this vast line up. From trout, panfish, inshore, sea trout, redfish, popping, snook, and multiple application Salmon/Steelhead rods, feel confident with the RX6 line up of blanks.
