Keystone Custom Rods





My buddy Don Moorehead of Keystone Custom Rods here in Cape Coral just built this beautiful 7' spinning rod for my dad's70th birthday last year.  Don used a Rainshadow RX8 blank which is perfectly suited for very light braid.  He also added titanium reflex guides and several custom wraps and inlays that you can see in the above photos.  I spent a lot of time casting this rod with a Shimano Saros 3000 reel spooled with 10# Power Pro.  I was tossing a Zara Spook at the neighbor's docks in some nasty winds and it felt like I had a sniper rifle in my hands.  The accuracy of this thing is stunning and it looks like a million bucks.  If you want Don to build you one give him a call at 239-292-5201 or check out his website here.
