HOW FISHING RODS ARE MADE – in the USA!
Check out how graphite fishing rods are made in the USA! Cashion Rods is based in Sanford, North Carolina and they make their rods start to finish right here in the United States of America. Matt Cashion, the owner of Cashion Rods, walks John Crews through how they make a graphite fishing rod.

What about rods that you can see the weave of the carbon fiber? Some people think that a $50 1st gen carbon fiber rod from 1990 that is simply clear coated, is better than an equivalent action $50 “blank” (whatever that means) made in 2020. Please address this in another video. What if I don’t want a painted 2019/2020 “composite” rod and like the look of the 1990 visible carbon fiber weave?
I still hate NC… but I love fishing in NC
I hope I get to were I have a rod of my own some day. It would be awesome to have a Good Ol Boy #76 rod and reel some day.
This video sorry I mean advert is so cringeworthy
Need to fix the description… Cashion Rods is based in Sanford, NC, not Stanford. They’re just south of where I live.
Also, great video! Looks like I will be getting my first Cashion rod at the fishing expo next week!
Did I enjoy this video?
Seems like everyone is in the rod making business and they are all around $220+/ea. Disappointed that Cashion Rods can’t get the price point down to $150! They would certainly dominate the market place vice catering more to niche market for more elite anglers. That’s why box retailers who sell bulk (Lews, Abu Garcia, Duckett, etc.) can get price down to more manageable price using cheaper labor overseas!
Great video, informational and American High Quality. Thanks for sharing
so much cringe in the setup. IF you are gonna setup an intro just write a script, its not hard.
I love Cashion. I live maybe a mile and a half away from the factory and used to go to church in the same building!
These rods are killer, BUT quality control can be better. I own 4 Cashion rods. The 2 John Crews series I have were perfect from the get go. Guides nice and straight, solid looking rods. The last 2 Cashions I have got haven’t been the same. The first rod was an elite series. Guides terribly crooked. Drove me insane. Candace at customer service sent me a replacement and all was well. I then ordered a custom rod from them. On this one the tip was badly crooked and when you look down the blank the tip section curves to the right. I can understand things happen but when 50% of my rods from 1 company have these issues it’s unacceptable. Both of the rods with crooked guides/blanks shouldn’t have left Cashion. Can’t believe someone “checked” these rods over and gave them the green light. Very frustrating.
very cool i fish for crappie right down the road from you in Vass, NC
i hope someday i will have fishing rod 🙁
Outstanding Shop tour. Love the Passion for Quality.
Made in the u.s.a.means costs more money…no offence. If u could see how most brands of rods are made you would see it’s all basically the same.Shakespere ugly stik for 39.95 is as tough a rod as it gets and it’s been proven over and over and did i mention 39.95.
I’m a G Loomis man! They are also made in the US but i definitely respect Cashion rods being made here! Thanks for doing a tour!
Very sweet video! Agree with the comments on the employees good stuff there
Hey close to my hometown! Nice tour of the facility
American craftsmanship … nothin’ beats it!
Fantastic, love seeing the entire process
Great tour ! Will be looking for these with deep appreciation for American workers handcrafting these fine instruments
Cool tour!! Thanks for that!!
Glad I stuck around. Thought it was going to be just throwing reel seats and guides on a blank. Mad respect that they roll their own blanks.
I recently picked up two Cashion spinning rods. Balance and sensitivity are very nice and they are parked in the boat next to a GLX and St Croixs’. I’ll Probably be adding more.
I’m looking for a 7’ultra light trout rod.
Now I know why rods cost so much
It’s awesome seeing how my favorite rod’s are mad. Visiting their facility is on my bucket list. I currently own 15 Cashion rod’s and saving to get one of them fancy Crew’s Missile square bill rod’s.
I have 4 cashion rods. Absolutely, absolutely.
Companies like Cashion definitely deserve more popularity than the companies that simply slap their names on imported China rods, aka “favorite fishing”.
Hope this guy is a better fisherman than he is as a tour guide. Dumb as a sack of hammers.
I want buy one
Blanks for us custom rod builders?
Thank you for the vid and keeping it USA baby!
That’s amazing I’m going to buy my rods from them. Great job.
Your rods are shit and heavy try English carp and match rods
Great video of how a great fishing rod is made. Glad to see employees taking pride in a their work.
I’ve got six Cashion rods and love them so much. The only rods I’ll fish for the rest of my life. The customer service is top notch too.
Guy on the right looks baked AF in the video picture
This is rad! Support local businesses.
Wow i am impressed gonna start buying cashion rods
You guys need a distributor in Australia as flick stix for glide baits are becoming very popular here especially in QLD aust
Sanford or I guess Saan-Ferrd works. LOL I miss NC.
I am your 599th LIKE 😁👍🏻
Thanks for showing us the process.
I felt bad for the guy putting on epoxy all day…I bet he is pretty high most of the time from it
Wait a second. This boss has a PHD in chemistry! Man these rods and the factory are looking amazing! I feel a new inshore rod comin’ on!
Did not know y’all were in my back yard! Never used Cashion!! Which do you recommend for chatter baits??
lookin for that cashion discout code to get 10% off some rods 😉 You must have forgot to mention it in your video???
I did not realize they did the whole process in US. Thought they just put guides on like every other rod that says made in USA. I 100% will purchase one for my next rod.
