The Best Fishing Rods Start Here.

Have you ever looked at your collection of fishing rods and wanted better?  Maybe you’re looking for lighter components, a hard-to-find combination of length and power, or a grip configuration designed specifically for you.  If rods customized for your type of fishing sounds intriguing, we’d like to invite you into the world of Batson Enterprises.  Batson is a premiere wholesale supplier of rod blanks and components to the fishing industry and is home to Rainshadow Rod Blanks, Alps Rod Components, and Forecast Rod Components brands.  We take pride in supplying top quality product to professional rod builders large and small.  Our mission is simple but requires the effort and specialized expertise of the entire Batson Team.

Our wholesale-only distribution model doesn’t mean you have to be a pro to reach out to us.  We’re always happy to consult with charters, guides, and individual anglers needing rods built for their specific needs.  We can point you in the right direction with expert advice and remove the headaches from the rod creation process.  Batson also has a vast network of quality rod builders that can create any type of rod in any quantity needed.

In addition to providing the very best rod blanks and components available, we back them up with the best service in the industry.  We believe in old-fashioned customer service and have expert rod building team members available to assist with everything from basic parts and blank selection questions to facilitating complete rod series development.  Every product we offer is soundly engineered in-house and rigorously field tested before being allowed in our catalog.

For over 20 years Batson has delivered on its promise to provide high performance product, robust inventory management, and competitive pricing that allows fishing rod creators to provide the world’s best anglers with the rods they need to win tournaments and get clients hooked into fish.  Get in touch with us and let us show you why the best fishing rods start here.

If you’re planning to fish in the Homer AK area and would like to give Rainshadow rods a try, we suggest booking a Homer or Seward saltwater charter or Kenai River guided salmon trip with Team Rainshadow pro staffers Dan and Sarah Spies of Big Dan’s Fishing Charters and Lodge.  Visit their booth in this show or go to their website
