Default Gemlux Interally Rigged Outriggers are here

Driven by customer demand, we took on the challenge of creating an internally-rigged outrigger vastly superior to what is currently on the market. Our team of engineers used advanced manufacturing techniques and materials to reinvent this product to make fishing the best experience it can be

Visit us at FLIBS next week to be the FIRST to see them!


Key Features:
- Our pole is both easily compacted for transport and shipping, while still allowing for clean lines and ultimate stiffness when assembled. No gluing required for assembly; all you need is a screwdriver!

- To alleviate the burden of re-rigging due to a broken line, we designed each component to accommodate smooth line routing that a single person can accomplish without tools, even with the outriggers fully assembled. Even if you do experience a tangle or kinked line, the design of our outriggers means that a screwdriver is all you need for better access to the inside of the pole.

- Low maintenance: rinsing with fresh water is the only recommended maintenance. High-gloss, UV-resistant coating resists fading.
- Constructed with 100% carbon fiber tubes and all hardware is salt-resistant 316 stainless steel, titanium, and proprietary reinforced composite materials.

Those are the only pics I have right now. I'm sure there will be many more after the Lauderdale show. We will be offering them in 18 and 22 foot lengths and will possibly offer a 27 as well, but we aren't sure on that just yet. We will also offer a 12 foot internally rigger center rigger.

I watched the vid, not a whole lot there on what is special about these or how they work, I guess more will be coming.

Here is a little more info on these for you.


Notable differences:

Ship in a 96” UPS box and can be put together with a screwdriver, no glue required. This also makes for easy breakdown for storage.

Each component is custom designed to fit perfectly on each pole. For our kite fisherman customers, this was a CRITICAL requirement. This allows for NO snags on any part of the poles.

We partnered with Aftco to use their tried and true rollers and self lubricating bearings. We designed them into our poles to fit perfectly and provide a large diameter roller and therefore smoother halyard operation. We used titanium pins to hold everything together, in places you can’t even see. All the way down to the fasteners.
Composite parts are designed to aid in rigging while the outrigger is assembled. These are easy to re rig offshore, with no special tools.

Using what we already know about our Deluxe poles, we made some other changes to these internals. The lamination schedule of the carbon fiber is specifically designed for these outriggers. The wall thickness is built thicker during the manufacturing process opposed to epoxying multiple poles together. This is a better way to do it. The stiffness and stability in these poles is second to NONE.

We partnered with Awlgrip to ensure we were using the best product we could to ensure the longevity of the finish. Now, ALL of our outrigger poles will have this finish which is a high gloss, UV resistant and easy to clean.

The assembly slots are robotically laser cut in very specific locations to ensure easy and safe assembly but also to provide the strength and stiffness you would expect at the base.

Another thing that we have learned over the past few years is that ‘things’ happen. Bridges, trees, oops, uh ohs, and the like... We always go out of our way to help any and all customers. That doesn’t mean that we want to send a new 22’ pole to you if you slam it into an oak tree. Frankly, we wouldn’t want to charge you for a whole new pole. So, the fact that our pole is modular allows you to replace only one section if an accident occurs. HUGE savings! We’re talking a couple hundred dollars vs a couple thousand. Again, not to mention the shipping cost of a 22’ tube.

How is it to snake the lines thru the riggers? Threading a needle?

It isn't difficult at all. Definitely easier than threading a needle.

can you see the seams / where they're connected with a noticeable bulge and are there then screws visible?

You can see the seams if you’re up close, But not from a distance. We also put transition rings on the poles to eliminate the possibility of line catching on these small pole transitions. Here’s a close up.

And yes, the screws are visible. They’re SS, and are what allow you to take this pole apart if ever needed.

The poles look awesome and I am sure the engineering that went into them was costly but damn they aint cheap.

I redact that statement as I looked at the cost of another companies internal riggers and Gemlux is actually cheaper and better looking.

You can if you prefer. We’ve actually started using our carbon fiber dredge booms in a lot of scenarios instead of the riggers. On a CC it simplifies everything a bit more.

thank you - are you going to have a one piece version? I understand the shipping benefits but that's a 1x expense. As for trailering, PVC tubes secured to the trailer have always worked for me when towing with 20' riggers. the riggers look great. definitely installing your bases on my next boat

I would never rule anything out, but right now we have no plans of that.
