Using up-to-date carbon fiber materials, this blank is priced low enough for the novice rod-maker but performs like a pro.

The finish is a clear matte (dark gray) or glossy Olympic Green.

Worth every penny

Reviewer: A viewer from South Africa

I've built a few of these blanks up, and all of them have been fished hard. They are great value for money. The Olympic Green is a dark green gloss, really an attactive blank colour. Plenty of butt power, responsive tip, and a nice medium-fast action. The sections fit perfectly into each other and one can see the quality of the manufacturer. Highly recommended...I'd fish these blanks anyday.

Great action

Reviewer: A viewer from Lolo, MT US

A great powerful blank. I have built several from 5-6wt. My only beef is that it feels heavy. it isn't heavy at all but its a bulky blank for a 9' rod.

Rainshadow 9' 9wt 4-piece blank

Reviewer: A viewer from GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA ZA

I've just finished building up this rod, my first Rainshadow. I've fished many rods, like Sage, G.Loomis and Scott, and decided to try the Rainshadow. What a great has a very fast action, ideal for casting heavy flies into off-shore winds. I got the matte clear colour, and must admit on the heavier weighted blanks this finish is awesome. The blank is also not finished "glossy", thus you don't need to scuff it much for epoxy glue to hold the reel seat and cork grip to it. It was a pleasure to build it, and after test-casting it an an open field with a stiff breeze, I found it to throw a great tight loop.

Rainshadow 9' 5wt 4pce blank

Reviewer: A viewer from GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA ZA

I finished this rod (together with a 9wt from Rainshadow as well) a while ago, and I opted for the Emerald Green finish. What a great looking blank! It may take a while longer to get as this finish is a special order (standard supply is matte clear) but on lighter rods in my opinion the Emerald Green finish looks awesome. The blank was quite straight, and it casts as well as the manufacturer states. It has a great moderate-fast action. Very good value for money, and well worth it.

You can't go wrong

Reviewer: A viewer from Rockford, IL US

The Batson Rainshadow flyrods in 2 or 4 piece are simply stunning. They have a wonderfully progressive taper and smooth actions that make them a joy to cast and handle. I like them far better than the premium blanks I've used. You can overline them by a size and they don't fold up - they just punch line out even harder. With a choice between matte and Olympic green in many sizes, you can make a stealthy rod or a beautiful prom queen and each will deliver on the water. These blanks are also lighter and better fitting than some "premium" blanks I've used. Compare the performance of these blanks and add in the top notch customer service from both J.Stockard and Batson. Some other blank co's won't even return an email. Stunning performance at a bargain price - you really can't go wrong...
