"I have been in the fishing business for over 30 years now making custom rods. We teamed up with the Batson company for rod parts and rod blanks many years ago and it has transformed my business. The Batson team are a true leaders in our industry and pioneers for the future of the fishing world.
In my business, QUALITY is extremely important and we can honestly say that when we send out rods with the Batson blanks, guides, and reels seats, we can feel confident that the customer will be 100% satisfied and they are getting a true quality custom made rod that they can enjoy for many years.
I am proud to call Bill Batson a friend and we enjoy meeting up and sharing some laughs with him and his team every year in Orlando at the ICAST show. Our orders keep getting bigger and bigger with these guys and we are very excited for what the future holds working with Batson Enterprises."

"We love the rods and couldn’t ask for anything better! All of our Team Rainshadow rods are built using Batson blanks and components, and feature a custom spiral wrap. Our clients are always impressed with their ability to handle fish. The halibut rods take no issue pulling in massive flatfish from the ocean floor. Our entire rod arsenal is made with Batson products; including our Kenai River salmon rods, saltwater salmon trolling rods, jigging rods for a variety of bottomfish, and our stout halibut rods.  They make rods we can trust for our clients to land any sized bruiser we are bound to hook and we’ve never had one break. Thanks for everything!"
