Originally designed to the exacting desires of Texas inshore fishermen, Redfish Bay rods should intrigue anyone who likes to fling plastic, whether wading or casting from a deck. The medium-lite- and medium-action rods measure 6 feet 10 inches and feature a 7-1/4 inch handle and solid-titanium Fuji Concept low-profile guides. Medium-lite, high-modulus-graphite blanks come in spinning (6- to 12-pound test, 1/8- to 1/2 inch lures) or casting (8- to 12-pound test, 1/4/- to 3/4-ounce lures) configurations, while the medium-action blank (10- to 15-pound test, 1/4- to 3/4-ounce lures) is a casting rod; all weigh in at less than 4 ounces each. The rods also feature a more traditional popping-rod action with a medium-fast taper, offering both sensitive feel and backbone strength. With a five-year warranty, the rods retail for $219 and are available now only online, at www.redfishbayrods.com. Visit that site, or call 361-983-4691 for more information.
