Blank Key

Helpful tips for understanding our blank naming system:

  1. The initial letters in the name indicate the intended purpose of the blank.
    KDR= Kokanee Downrigger, MB=Mag Bass, SB=Swimbait, SH= Steelhead, etc.
  2. After the letters there are a series of numbers pertaining to the blank length.
    SH1065-2= 10’6” blank, MB704= 7’ blank, LSW663= 6’6” blank, etc.
  3. Next is the power of the blank compared against other Stryker blanks in its category.
    MB705= 5 power SU1208-2= 8 power, DS704= 4 power, FL702= 2 power.

Other helpful tips:

  • Any blank with a "-2" at the end is a two-piece blank. If there is no "-2" then it is a one-piece blank.
  • Any blank with an "HM" at the end is a High Modulus blank.
  • Any blank with a "T" at the end of the name has an outer wrap of carbon fiber twill.

Finish options:

  • We currently do not offer any coating finish for our blanks. Our blanks are manufactured with either a raw non-sanded finish or a sanded finish.
  • All blanks except for saltwater, some inshore, surf, and trolling rods will come sanded unless otherwise noted.
  • You can specify whether you want sanded or non-sanded finishes in your order notes if you prefer something different from our standard stock.
