Godfrey Custom Graphite Rods   

I originally made Graphite rods starting back in the 1980's so I am very familiar with the great casting dimensions of modern era rods, and SAGE in particular. Over many years I also built and fished rods with Diamondback, Scott and other premium blanks. These rods were fished on large rivers for bass as well as Pennsylvania spring creeks for trout.

Sage blanks were and are my favorite and define the pinnacle of graphite rod design. As the leading brand SAGE not only pushes the envelope for casting range, but also for casting "friendliness". That is for both accuracy and the ease of casting that make you want to come back to the favored rod day after day. I machine the reel seats and all work is hand crafted based on 30 years of graphite rod crafting.
