On the occasions we fish with conventional gear, we refuse to fish with junk. At the end of a disappointing search that lasted years, we decided to make our own rods for Seatrout and Trout fishing. Naturally they are built at the same level of quality and attention to detail found in modern fly rods.
Reliant rods have a deep parabolic action with progressive power from butt to tip and feature two interchangeable “+” handle extensions to create different lengths for both wading and for fishing from a boat, kayak or float tube. In addition to adjusting handle length, the “+” butt section performs another important function and that is to move the first ferrule away from the end of the handle. This allows for a multi-piece rod with a long-handle without creating a weak-point at the front of the grip. Only Reliant multi-piece Spinning and Casting rods offer this feature.
There are also a couple of faster, tip-action models in the series and even a long, progressive trigger grip for multiplier reels.
Reliant rods travel better than any other rods available at this level of performance. Flying and don't want to drag a bazooka with you? No problem. These will fit in your regular luggage. Reliant rods are built with Fuji seats and Kigan rings. See details on the Reliant range at the link below.

When we introduced Reliant in 2014, everyone that tried them loved the actions and the features, but we also heard many express the wish for a more traditional 2-pc rod with the same feel. We introduced the Searun in 2016 and there are five models similar to the 9'6" pictured below. For more information on all of our Searun rods view the link to the Searun product specifications here.
