Every once in a while, you stumble across something so unique that you begin to question everything you’ve ever learned about something. That’s where the Dark Matter OB Surf Casting Rods come in. As you first gaze upon this piece of angling art, you get the feeling you’re looking at the beginning of a new trend in this sport. And you’d be right. The most un-traditional surf rod ever built gives an entirely new look and feel to our favorite sport. The rod weighs nothing at all. The traditional long rear grip section has been ditched in favor of an inshore, low profile style reel seat and butt end. You’re essentially fishing a 10-foot-long inshore rod – and your arms and back will know it by days end. There is no better stick for throwing light swimming plugs than the Dark Matter OB Surf Casting Rod, and it’s more than capable of tossing bucktails and small tins as well. However, you’ll never and I mean never, fish a better rod for back bay plugging. Paired with a 150 or 200 sized reel, say with 15# braid and you’ll launch plugs beyond the horizon line. While that’s obviously an exaggeration, the distance this rod produces with absolutely minimal effort is staggering! And even after a grueling 4-hour session, your shoulders will feel like you just popped out for a quickie before work. It’s insane. The Dark Matter OB Surf Casting Rods are just the beginning of a completely new trend in angling. Get in on it and feel the difference.

Dark Matter OB Surf Casting Rods are available in 10" and have a 50/50 split. When you put the rod pieces together there will be some space showing. This is completely normal. Just twist the pieces together firmly but don't over do it. You do not need a lot of force. Due to the lightweight design, the OB is more fragile than a traditional surf rod. While it is extremely powerful, it cannot handle as much abuse as a traditional surf rod. Take good care of it and it will last a very long time! Get your hands on this fishing powerhouse by ordering yoiurs directly from Dark Matter or at leading suppliers worldwide.
