Stryker designed this rod to be a perfect tool for float fishing both Fall and Spring Chinook. Rated 12-25lb and 1-3oz, this rod is well balanced for all day use. The top half loads up perfectly for making accurate casts and the backbone is strong enough to fight fish in any conditions. The length is a perfect blend of hook setting power and effortless line mending on longer swings. (spinning and casting)

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.
