Our mission is to make great rods

Stryker rods are among the highest quality rods designed and built locally by people who fish, and know what they wanted to see in a rod, but couldn’t find elsewhere. Stryker’s no-compromise philosophy in our choice of components means we are building the best to be fished by the best.

Have you heard of the ten percent rule? It’s just this: Ten percent of the anglers catch 90% of the fish. Stryker rods are for the ten percent group. Not only are they the highest quality rod, they will help you become a better angler.

Carbon fiber rod handles

Stryker Rod handles are custom-designed by CFX. Our CFX grips are custom-tapered to match the Alps reel seats and butt caps, providing a flush surface that is functional and visually appealing. The carbon fiber is durable, grippy in wet conditions, warms to the touch, and cleans up easily. They are extremely light and sensitive so as not to deaden the feel of the rod as you fish it.

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.
