The Dark Matter IO Spinning Rod series represents the pinnacle of purposefully built modern rod manufacturing. Everything about this incredible series has been thoughtfully placed with intent. From its acid wrapped Fuji K Guides and precisely measured and subtly contoured fore and rear grips to its low profile Fuji reel seat and stylish crosshatched blank design – the Dark Matter IO series rods left no stone unturned. Its M3 Nano Carbon blank is both feather light and incredibly powerful across its entire blank. I’ve literally never felt a rod actually load up with more power upon hookset. It’s almost like you’re drawing a bow – you can feel the energy stored within the entire blank. I first used this rod (the 7’6” MH conventional version) in a late November offshore tog trip. We fished a piece in about 90’ of water off Block Island on a moon tide, and if you know anything about that area, the current tears through there at an obscene pace. Using 16 ounces of lead and 40# braid, my first hookset almost dislocated the jaw of an 8# tog and ripped it out of the piece with incredible ease. Needless to say, this became my go-to deepwater bottomfishing stick for years to come. Dark Matter IO rods come in both spinning and conventional, with 7’ Light models, 7’3” Medium models and a 7’6” model in conventional only. If you’re a serious bottom fisherman, this is absolutely the rod for you. Fish one, you’ll never look back. You can order yours here or from a Dark Matter dealer. Dark Matter IO Spinning Rods are available worldwide.
