“The Closer” USA-Made Centerpin Rods & Blanks

The “Float Rod” Perfected

“The Closer” is a Centerpin Rod Series with a mod/fast action delivering accurate float control and hookset response, even on longer drifts. Many centerpin rods are tip heavy and too soft. This rod was designed to be well-balanced and powerful while still protecting light leaders.

“It’ll give you, the angler, true float control and powerful hooksets at longer distances.  Close the deal on Steelhead & Salmon with THE CLOSER.” Roger Hinchcliff – Primary Rod Consultant


The blanks distribute pressure throughout the blank so precisely that there is a forgiving but powerful backbone. Have a stout fish headed for the rapids? You can turn fast and furious fish easier than with traditional “floppy” Centerpin Rods. Have a fish coming out of the water fast with barbless hooks? These rods are not stiff and allow a fish to twist and turn.

With beautiful polished graphite blank construction and a fiberglass weave over the butt section, these rods have lightweight sensitivity but are also dependable and strong.

Top Quality Guides

“The Closer” features larger REC recoils on the top section to avoid icing and a brand-new REC double-ring recoil on the tip-top. The lower ceramic guides are sensitive, strong and lightweight. Recoils result in less tip weight and hold up well to continued bank and boat use.

Carbon Fiber Weave Handlethe closer handle

The carbon fiber weave handle is a new advantage in sensitivity. The materials used in this handle configuration are designed to maximize vibrations, while being highly durable. These handles clean off nicely from bait use (like egg skeins) and grip very well in wet or dry weather.

You will notice that the CFX carbon fiber handle warms to your hand quickly. Grab a hold for 30 seconds, take your hand off and touch the handle again, it retains warmth. This feature perfect for cold-weather angling.

With a sleek black butt cap the rod balances expertly and protects the rod when set down on the bank or on a boat floor.
