About Carrot Stix™ Rods
A fishing experience unlike any other. Developed by a world-renowned science lab, Carrot Stix™ fishing rods were made with high-quality graphite with biopolymer, a bonded matrix composed of bio-nanocellulose fibers. When the nano size micro-spheres of silica are added to the special resin, it improves the compression strength up to 75%, making the rod blank durable yet lightweight.
The name Carrot Stix™ comes from the innovative technology of the original Carrot Stix™ E21 rods, which utilized bio-nanocellulose fibers extracted from real carrots to make the rod blank lighter, shock absorbent, and more sensitive and responsive.
The MicroWave Guide system from American Tackle reduces line snap on the rod when casting, allowing longer and more accurate casts. This feature is integrated in some of our rod series for avid anglers seeking higher performance.
The action of a rod is best described as the strength or lifting power required to move a fish. Action is created by analyzing its application, environmental condition, and fishing style. At Carrot Stix™, each series is produced with various blends of materials and is graded independently. E.g. A freshwater rod with medium heavy action will feel different from a saltwater rod with medium heavy action.
The taper of a rod refers to the point the rod flexes during the cast and on the retrieve. Along with its materials and components, it determines how a rod performs: A rod with extra fast taper flexes closest to the tip; as the taper descends from extra fast to medium, the flex descends from the tip of the rod blank towards the handle.
Carrot Stix™ designs each taper in consideration of variables such as angle preferences, variety of personal styles, and presentation and performance of lure on the delivery and retrieve. We strive to provide anglers optimization of variables when the proper taper is combined with the proper lure.
