Our Story

It all started with an opportunity, a dream, and a little bit of luck. Three friends and business partners – Duane, Allan, and Josh – came together after catching word that machinery from another rod manufacturing facility was on the market. While the dissolution of another company is certainly untimely, it left an opportunity for the three partners to pursue a passion and fill a void that had been left in the angling community.

Isn’t it every fisherman’s dream, to be able to build any rod the way they want?

The possibilities are endless, and we at Stryker Rods are testing the waters, so to speak, to create the best and most complete lines we can. Each blank and rod that we build is hand-crafted right in our facility in Eugene, Oregon and is tested by our employees who share the same love of fishing as our founders. The vision of the partners is to create only the highest quality products for every angler, from novices to seasoned veterans.

Our business has been built from a true passion, and our craft can only be described as a labor of love… because we fish!

What sets us apart?

It all starts with the raw materials! We work closely with our suppliers to create our custom blends of resins, prepreg carbon and glass. Ensuring each blank or rod performs at its peak potential. Stryker spares no expense in choosing our components. Guides, grips, reel seats, handles down to butt caps have all been specifically chosen to combine into what might be the best rod you have ever fished. Stryker’s finished rods are hand built in small batches by our skilled team.
