Innovative DesignMeticulous ConstructionQuality Components
Built with the most advanced components available, Star Rods are the desired fishing rods among anglers worldwide. As technology evolves so do the components with which we build our rods. Split cork grips on our VPR, Plasma, and Seagis inshore rods have overall rod weight at an all-time low. Plasma, Stellar, and Handcrafted boat rods, feature Star Rods’ patented PowerButt®, built tough and designed for quick removal from the rod holder when a big fish is on the line. From Fuji® SIC tangle-free K-guides on some inshore rods to Aftco® super heavy duty roller guides on our IGFA rods, quality guides are precisely matched to rod blanks. Our blanks are built using the highest quality materials available. The VPR series integrates a new Nano resin resulting in the lightest rods we’ve ever made, with no loss in strength. We were one of the first rod builders to blend Basalt fiber into a rod blank, putting our Plasma jigging rods ahead of the curve. Star’s proven and patented Duratech technology gives many of our rods strength, durability, and sensitivity.
Split Reel Seats
Fuji’s SK2 split reel seat gives increased sensitivity while reducing weight. Available on Star’s Plasma and Seagis series.
Fuji or Stuart reel seats provide a snug, wobble-free fit that’s durable, reliable and trouble-free.
Our patented PowerButt® is an exclusive Star Rod’s innovation. The PowerButt® is made from durable composite material that is kind to anglers and mean to fish. Many times tougher than EVA, the comfortable PowerButt® is abrasion resistant, lightweight and draws from a rod holder more easily than EVA.
Tangle Free Guides
Fuji’s tangle free K-guides are designed to minimize braided line tangles, yet are just as applicable with monofilament and fluorocarbon lines. These guides feature Alconite or SiC rings for the ultimate in corrosion resistance and weight reduction allowing for a faster, farther cast.
AFTCO® roller guides are some of the world’s best.
Fuji’s SiC (silicon carbide) guide rings are the most advanced ceramic rings available to date. Diamond polishing produces one of the smoothest rings around. These rings are designed to reduce weight, dissipate heat and increase line sensitivity.
Concept Guide System
Fuji’s concept guide system results in greater sensitivity, improved casting distance, accuracy and efficiency, and overall improved rod action.
Innovations like the exclusive Duratech Technology adds to sensitivity, strength and durability. Our Plasma series takes this technology to a new level.
Star Rods was one of the first rod builders to incorporate basalt fibers into fishing rods. Basalt fiber used in conjunction with Duratech technology gives Plasma rods the most advanced performance to date.
