There is a range of customization's that you can make to your custom built rod, from different thread and trim colors to titanium or colored guides. You can really add your own personal touch and make it yours.
We use mainly fuji components, although we can source specific components that we do not stock on request.
We use quality, proven components on all our rods. Up to 90% of the components we use are from Fuji.
Synit designs their own exclusive range of blanks, which are rolled in the Kilwell factory in Rotorua, NZ.
Although we do not develop one-off blanks, we do work with our Agents on developing blanks suited to their markets.
When we develop a new blank, each new deisgn is thoroughly tested before the finished rod makes it to the market.
Knowing the blank materials, mandrels and patterns give us the advantage of understanding where to place certain components along the blank for optimum performance.
We use a combination of Fuji guides for our light lure, jigging, black bass and top water ranges. For game we use Winthrop Express roller guides, Pac Bay Eliminator roller guides or heavy duty Fuji fixed boat guides. The Fuji guides we use come in a range of different finishes and different inserts.
We use mainly Fuji reel seats, but can also source Matagi custom painted reel seats on request. We use a combination of TVS, PLS-SD, PTS, DPS and PSSLD Fuji reel seats. For our game rods we use Affco reel seats and butts.
We hand turn and shape our EVA grips in house, using an extra extra hard grade of black EVA to minimize any dents from use. We primarily use EVA because of its durability around water, and comfort to the angler. It is easily replaceable should it get damaged, and easy to keep clean. We do not use cork grips, This is because of their inability to handle repeated bending, and with how quickly cork can deteriorate. While cork is marginally lighter then EVA, it does not conform to the nature of our rods.
We also offer carbon grips for the lock-down reel seats, these come in plain carbon or metallic gold, blue or red threaded carbon.
The trim we use comes in a range of different colors and styles. From dimpled winding checks to metallic threaded carbon spacers. We use double anodized alloy trim from a mixture of Fuji and other quality component brands.
When a blank is painted it first needs to be sanded to remove the scale a blank has from the cellu-wind it is wrapped in before the blank is baked. Sometimes when sanding the blank to get a smooth base for painting, too much material can be stripped away, decreasing the strength of the rod.
Left- Polished and Matte blanks with scale, Middle- A blank which has not been sanded 'true', Right- A smooth painted blank.
Our neuron artwork offers an alternative to a painted blank by using epoxy to add color without compromising the blanks strength. There is no need for sanding when applying epoxy, although, we do slightly mar the blank before applying a base coat for better adhesion.
Decals & lazer etching
Want to personalize your rod even further? Decal labels or laser etching to grips is a great way to further customize your rod to really make it one of a kind.
