Dark Matter Inshore Casting Rods

The rod that started it all - the Dark Matter Inshore series is the OG of the Dark Matter lineup. I hold a special place in my heart for this one, as it spawned the entire line of Dark Matter rods. With a simple and elegant design, this inshore casting rod is truly one of the best on the market. Just simple cork grips, Fuji Alconite guides, and a Fuji low-profile reel seat. The matte black finished blank looks sharp paired with glossy black and silver accented guide wrappings. I’ve fished this inshore casting rod all up and down the East coast. My personal KO list for this rod is as follows – Striped bass to 42 inches, fluke, blackfish, weakfish, bluefish, redfish to 44 inches (that was fun), black drum, jack crevalle, sea trout, countless bull shark pups, sheepshead, tripletail, and one very angry permit. This was all done on my prototype 7’ medium-power spinning rod (our production models are much better built and come in M, MH, and H models) so that goes to show how well built this rod is and how versatile it can be in the hands of someone who is truly passionate about this sport. We make this rod in both spinning and conventional, with one brand new XH conventional rod that I designed for heavy bottom fishing.

If you're looking for a durable, long-lasting rod, these are perfect. Order your Dark Matter Inshore Casting Rod today from leading suppliers nationwide.
