Default Great fishing rods!!

Been meaning to post this for a few weeks ... Last week of July went to fish for Marlin with a buddy... long story short we hooked up on a good fish (400#) and we were almost spooled 2 times. On the second time the fish went directly to the bottom and we had to go full on the drag to avoid loosing all the line. We had been fighting the fish for almost five hours and being only my friend and I on the boat, we were exhausted so we had to rest the rod on the boat gunnel knowing it could easily snap. With the drag on full and the rod on the Gunnel, we abused that rod that day like you couldnt believe it for like another hour until the fish gave up! I still cant believe it didnt snap with all that pressure! Needless to say all my
next rods are going to be from Pinnacle ! Rod used was a XR- Eliminator jr. Fish came up dead so it was boarded. Fish length was 104".

Brian, Thanks for posting that great video!
Looks like the rod and crew went through a real workout.

For those interested - This Custom Sword rod has the Calstar RT-50 Blank. As you can see from the video - very durable !

Brian, wanted a longer version of the Baja Boomer, and the RT-50 is medium action with more of a parabolic curve vs the fast action of the Baja Boomer, and Boomer jr Blanks. A great option if you need a longer rod with a sensitive bite.

Custom Sword Rods are now available with - RT-50, Baja Boomer, and the most popular Boomer jr. Calstar blanks

Shout out to John at Pinnacle Marine. I had a rod butt break and he replaced it with no issues and had it to me within 3 days. It is nice to deal with people that value their customers and do what it takes to take care of them. The majority of our rods are pinnacles and we plan to continue doing business with John!

Same here - got an Exterminator 100 from John and the thing is so sturdy you can not only catch fish with it but also club'em to death if they thrash too much. Man...great comms with John as well.

I'm going to throw in ANOTHER shout out to John for his incredible products and customer service. My entire arsenal is the Pinnacle TSX line, (5) 30's, (4) 50's, and (2) 130's.

As soon as I get my damn vessel right I will be in for (2) more 130's

Another very happy customer here. Received 7 rods and a gaff today from John. All the reviews on the tht led me to Pinnacle and I am glad it did. Extremely happy with the quality of the rods and gaff. Thank you John. Looking forward to buying more down the road.

Default Shout Out BUMP!!

A BIG shout out to John with his excellent product. I am now experimenting with different deep drop reels (Kristal Box Series) - thanks for getting another 'bare ended' rod ready for another semi custom build. The pics below (some are in order ) show the rod in various stages (don't tell my wife about the kitchen counter!!)

Took the THT members advice and purchased
a (#13 Spiral Wrap) Pinnacle Marine rod to combo for a new Avet HX 5.2 Raptor I plan to use with 40# PowerPro braid. I got my son's name engraved on the reel last week. I plan to get the butt section of rod engraved also.
☆Recieved the rod in the mail today!
AWESOME quality.
THIS IS GONNA BE AN AWESOME CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR MY LITTLE FISHING BUDDY!!!
The rod is much nicer than I expected. Can't wait to see little man catch a fish with it!
