Cashion Fishing RodsCashion Fishing Rods

Cashion Fishing Rods takes a scientific approach to designing fishing rods for enthusiastic anglers. We incorporate design concepts using cutting edge procedures and high performance materials that are typically used in the production of race cars. All Cashion Bass Fishing Rods are designed using Fuji Microguide technology, which increase the physical performance and sensitivity. We designed a novel technique to manufacture carbon fiber grips, which perform as an extension of your fingertips providing amazing sensitivity.

Cashion Blanks are constructed of high grade carbon fiber and manufactured by a uni-directional process, which ensures the carbon fiber runs perfectly straight from the butt to the tip. The uni-direction carbon fiber does not wrap or twist as it travels the blank, ensuring the carbon fiber is aligned at 0° without rotation. The uni-direction process ensures Cashion Blanks are extremely strong because the rod will not twist under load. Plus, vibrations have a straight path down the blank to your finger tips providing astonishing sensitivity. Visit us at
