HIGH POINT, NC – Momentum continues to build towards the largest International Custom Rod Building Exposition in history. Although it’s still early, more than 30 exhibitors have already climbed on board for the 9th annual rendition of the world’s largest event for the custom rod building craft and industry. The exhibitor list is expected to double by show time.

As of October 17th, the following companies had purchased exhibit space: AFTCO Mfg., American Tackle, Angler’s Envy, Angler’s Roost, Batson/Rainshadow/ALPs, Bingham Enterprises, Decal Connection, Fishsticks, Hydra Fishing LLC, Jim Upton Weaving, Ken & Lana Preston Rods, Lamiglas, Inc., Mar Ktruz LDA Cork Products, Mickel’s Custom Rods, MudHole Custom Tackle, NERBS, North East Rod Builders, North Fork Composites/Gary Loomis, Renzetti, Inc., Roddancer Fishing Rod Enhancements, RodMaker Magazine, Schlesinger Wood Turning, Seeker Rod Company, Skin Shop USA, St. Croix Rods & Blanks, Sticks ‘N Bones, Swampland Tackle, Talon Graphite, Tiage USA, Trondak U-40, and Woodworkers Shop.

The “Expo” remains the premier event for custom rod builders. In addition to 100 booths packed with every item for custom rod building, 25 continuing education seminars and demonstrations are included with the low price of admission ($10).

The Expo has also become a favorite of fishermen wishing to see the future of fishing rods, today. Think “Micro Guides” or “Carbon Grips are new? Think again – both were unveiled at the Expo more than 5 years ago! The rods displayed at the 2012 Expo will be the rods on your dealer’s shelves in 2015!

    I’ve been there. It’s a really big deal where the fishing rod industry is concerned. Neat stuff.

    They are about 5 years ahead of the general tackle industry. What you see there now is what you find on the dealer shelves in about 5 years afterwards.
