Mustad Fishing Enters the Rod Market with Rods
Welcome to Mustad Rodworks!
Mustad Fishing globally introduces rod ranges covering a wide variety of fishing techniques designed with experts from across the world. With this addition together with LIVETARGET, TUF-LINE, and Mustad’s own product fishing tackle, Mustad continues to solidify itself as a complete sports fishing brand family.
Developed with Bassmaster Elite Pro Angler Brandon Lester, the BLF Instinct rods lead the pack with tailored specifications and premium components, tested and proven at the professional level. In February, these impressed the nation when Lester took the win at St. Croix Bassmaster Southern Open on the Kissimmee Chain.
“I’ve been fishing my whole life, and everyone knows my history as a custom rod builder. I’ve put everything I’ve learned as a builder and an Elite Series angler into these rods,” says Brandon Lester. “Each rod is designed just the way I needed it, down to the finest detail. The Mustad Instinct rods are the best I’ve ever used, period.”
Mustad’s rod range doesn’t stop there. Imagined by professionals, Mustad’s inshore rods give anglers the construction of custom rods at a competitive price. The G-Series Inshore series is a performance-level rod available in a wide range of power and action configurations with a spinning reel seat.
The popular slow pitch jigging techniques from Japan have gone global and become a staple in offshore fishing. The G-Series Slow Stroke Jigging rod range offer four versatile rods featuring 40T high-modulus carbon blank and premium Fuji reel seat and tangle-free guides. This range is available in 4 one-section models to match all Mustad slow fall jig weights and styles.
For the passionate freshwater angler, Mustad has launched the G-Series Hybrid: a premium hybrid rod range for large lakes and rivers. Built around an innovative telescoping/2-section design, these rods offer the mobility of a collapsible rod for hiking into new locations, storing in a backpack, or taking up less space in the boat, while maintaining strength and sensitivity of a standard 2-section rod.
Utilizing the same telescopic construction as the G-Series Hybrid range, the Vantage Hybrid is an extremely versatile rod, ideal for modern urban lure fishing techniques available with either a spinning or baitcaster reel seat.
Mustad continues the range two Vantage rods. The Vantage EVOQ range is a multi-purpose, fast-action rod for modern lure fishing techniques, while the Vantage FX range is a virtually indestructible option for the widest range of applications, considered a proper workhorse.
“We’ve brought together the experiences and input from professionals and talents across the globe to bring an impressive range of rods to the market,” says Product Manager Enrico Parmeggiani. “I am extremely satisfied with the quality and construction of these products and look forward to continuing this journey.”
Mustad rods will hit stores this spring, with more products to be announced at ICAST.
