Bushido Rod Blanks


Click for Specifications

Bushido freshwater and inshore rod blanks, the newest American Tackle blank introduction.  31 models comprised of high strain Japanese carbon fibers combined with advanced resin-systems focused on reducing weight , increasing material recovery and adding sensitivity.  Comprehensive application specific selection of newly refined actions and lengths offered in a stealthy durable "Black Satin" finish.

Microwave Guide System
Doug Hannon's Microwave Guide System by American Tackle.  This guide system focuses on "Line Control" for spinning rod applications.  The System captures the line  leaving the reel during a cast immediately focusing the line into forward motion to convert pushing energy into pulling energy while maintaining control as the line passes through the guides.  This system increases casting distance, reduces fatigue, increases accuracy, increases lure range of rods and reduces wind knots.  Sold as a complete set of 9 guides.

Ring Lock Saltwater Rod Tops



American Tackle's newest top design.  Utilizies the Ring Lock System to lock ultra smooth hard ceramic rings into a larger saltwater frame that protects the ring from impact.  The strong stainless steel frame is welded on the top of the tube to reduce fishing line tip wrapping.  These tops also feature American Tackle's brand new corrosion proof "Titanium" finish to cosmetically match solid titanium frame guides.  Available with 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm ring sizes.

AERO-17 Reel Seat
17mm Graphite Spinning Rod Reel Seat.  Features an ergonomic palm swell that provides fatigue free comfort as well as additional leverage when casting and fighting fish.  Ideal for salmon/steelhead, inshore, and boat rods where blank diameter allow.  Offered with American Tackle's "Comfort Finish" body and black or chrome stainless steel hoods.
