|Skeet's Custom RodsTM is dedicated to building the finest fishing rods available.
Skeet's rods are built using the Skeet's Guide ConceptTM. The information
provided in this section is designed to help you understand why a rod built using
this system improves rod performance.
What is it?
The "Skeet's Guide ConceptTM " emphasizes guide size, number, and placement on
the rod to maximize performance.
Why do we use it?
Even a rod blank manufactured from the lightest and strongest fibers can't
deliver optimum performance without the right guides. By carefully
choosing the type, size, and placement of the guides, we are able to
maximize the performance of our rods.
What are the advantages?
Greater Sensitivity: A lighter rod tip and guides increases the vibration
Greater Castability: Tests have proven that casting distance is improved
by up to 10% using the Skeet's Guide ConceptTM.
Increased Accuracy: By using smaller rings and a lower profile, the Skeet's
Guide ConceptTM . reduces twists or torque, and wind resistance. The line
is aligned with the blank and casting accuracy and efficiency is improved.
Improved Weight Balance: By using smaller, lighter guides the rod is
better balanced, providing a rod that is easier on the wrist and less
fatiguing during a full day of fishing.
Greater Hooking Power: Hooking power is affected by the number of
guides on the rod. More guides increase hooking power by keeping the
line close to the rod. There is less power loss with the Skeet's Guide
ConceptTM so your chances of setting the hook and landing the fish are
Reduced Line Twist: Line twist is reduced on a spinning rod when using
the Skeet's Guide ConceptTM. The number of casts made by a fisherman in
a day's time can create havoc with line twist. With the Skeets's Guide
ConceptTM, more guides lessen the angle as line passes through the guide,
reducing pressure on the guide, and in turn the amount of line twist when
casting and retrieving repeatedly.
Maximizes Rod Power: A rod equipped with the Skeet's Guide ConceptTM
can shorten the landing time of a fish by up to 35%. As a rod is powered
backwhen fighting a fish, drag resistance from the reel and guides are at a
maximum. More guides will maximize the total drag resistance as well as
improving the rods action.
