Rod Building Mega Sale!

The Judge Blanks

  • For 2024, select Judge models have received design upgrades, making the industry's best hybrid material rod blanks even better.
  • New lower pricing across all models in both the live bait and crankbait series. 
  • Improved manufacturing consistency.

S-Glass Pattern with RX7  Graphite Added to the Bottom Half of the Blank for Lighter Weight, Increased Sensitivity, Slimmer Rear Profile, and Greater Lifting Power

Manufactured in the USA, these blanks feature custom formulated S-Glass, RX7 graphite and a state of the art DPH Technology (Diamond Poly Helix carbon wrap) which increases lifting power and reduces torsion.

Unlike typical live bait blank designs, the new Judge series features small diameter, low taper per inch designs which makes fitting handles and reel seats much easier. On normal blanks of this type there is a tremendous amount of taper in the handle area making it difficult to ream handle material and arbor reel seats. By drastically reducing the taper in the bottom 40" of each model you can now expect much simpler assembly and far better glue to component bonding strength. No more reel seats or grips coming loose due to spotty glue coverage.

The JUDGE live bait designs are about 10-15% lighter than other RainShadow live bait designs. They cast further, are more sensitive and the carbon wrap reduces torque in the bottom half of the rods by 15%...all without adding any weight. The search for the ultimate live bait blank just ended.

  • Modern Blend of RX7 Graphite/S-Glass
  • S-Glass Tip for Extra Fast Action and High Strength
  • Striking Clear Gloss Finish
  • Perfect Live Bait and Crankbait Blanks
  • *Limited Lifetime Warranty
