Rhino Kevlar-graphite Rods

4 posts in this topic

I just picked up one of these the other day, sticking to it instead of the ugly stick because of cost and weight (the Rhino is a bit lighter, and cost about half of the Ugly Stick light) Anyone have any good/bad expereinces with these? The concept sounds simmilar, and they guy at the store I bought it from says he's had good expereinces with the durability of these rods. Anyone know more?

I bought one about 15 years ago when they first came out. The first time I set the hook the tip blew off. Granted, they might have a different process in making the blanks now adays vs. back then.

I had similar ezperiences with the Rhino rods, but it was 10 years ago or so. I broke two of them without putting any undo stress on them. Very unusual for a rod that was supposed to be tough. I hope they are better now!

I think this is the first year they are making the Kevlar rods.. Before that I think they were just a Graphite Composite. We'll see...
