ATLED™ Fishing Rods
NEW for 2019! Cajun Rods® Sets the Standard with ATLED™ Series Fishing Rods
Once again, we’ve listened to the American anglers and have gone back to the drawing boards … and as a result bring to you the lightest, most sensitive, and strongest rod we’ve ever designed, engineered, or produced … and oh so sweet they are!
NEW for 2019, the ATLED™ series serve as the next step in fishing rod technology and performance. We took our Cajun Delta rod designs and turned them “inside out” … upping our CFX+™ carbon fibers by 15% – creating a whole new standard for what you’d consider an absolutely amazing fishing rod! Better yet … we’ve done so at the same price we’ve honored for over a decade – now 3x the performance and still at 1/2 the price of any competitor on the planet!
We know the drill … you study, prepare, plan … do everything right for your next fishing trip … all in hopes of landing “the BIG One.” Your equipment has to be ready … ready to perform … ready to cast, hook set, and fight the catch of a lifetime all the way to boat. That’s exactly why we took our very best rod and completely re-engineered every fishing-fighting aspect of the 2019 Cajun ATLED™ series of rods.
All ATLED™ series rods are now tuned with FUJI® Quality K-Series K-Series Tangle Free rod guides and tips … making your casts even longer, more precise … even on those tough, windy days. Did we mention that every ATLED™ series rod is finishing in our upgraded Duracore™ Premium 4A-Grade Cork? With the addition of 15% more CFX+™ carbon fiber material in our AT-872, 873, and 874 models we’ve reduced the overall weight of every ATLED™ which ultimately enhances your casting comfort, increases rod sensitivity, and strengthens rod hook-setting and fish-fighting power. So, we think you’ll agree – our decision to bring on the ATLED™ series rods was a “no brainer” … we just couldn’t resist the temptation!
ATLED™ Signature Series Rods – NEW for 2019!
While designing the ATLED™ series rods, our rod designer and engineer told us he had been working on “something special.” So when Jaesen walked in and handed our team his latest creation from the Cajun Rods® “Rod Lab” … we all flipped out! The rod design that he placed in our hands is what we’ve now come to call the ATLED™ Signature Series.
So what makes this rod “so special?” you might ask. Well first, the Signature Series has the highest content of CFX+™ carbon fiber of ANY rod that we’ve ever produced. How much? A total of 75% more … yep! That’s 25% more than any Delta, 10% more than any Cajun ATLED™ … and that makes this rod truly exceptional … just from a material stand-point alone. So what else? Well, the ATLED™ Signature series are also a new rod length for the top of our line family of rods … measuring out at 7 feet total length. Additionally, the ATLED™ Signature Rods are Extra Fast Action and Medium Power – the perfect balance in rod taper for technical, hard-hitting fish catching! And finally, to top it off, the ATLED™ Signature rods are lined out with FUJI® Quality K-Series K-Series Tangle Free rod guides and tips … making your casts even longer, more precise … even on those tough, windy days.
At half the price of our completion and twice the performance in our Made in USA Cajun Rods®, we continue to provide each and every angler a better fishing rod for less money out of they pockets … now that’s what we’re talking about! So the next time you need that extra edge against your competition, the extra few yards in every cast, to feel the future on your line, and the extra power in your rod to haul em’ confidently to the boat, we know your ATLED™ fishing rod is going to help you open a can of “Oh, Hell Yeah!” in every cast!
Go ahead and dare to sight-fish for a tailing redfish, skip a lure to an ambush ready largemouth or maybe even target a little bigger prey in a deeper hole near the edge of a drop-off, bridge piling, or local waters near you. Even better, pole on into a big flat near the your favorite “honey-hole” from the RGV to Corpus, run the shoreline and coasts of the Louisiana Delta and into the Florida Panhandle, and venture across the heartland of USA and north to Great Lakes and New England. Yep – keeping in mind with its name, we’ve engineered the ATLED™ series of rods so that you are ready to be successful in your local waters. That’s what our ATLED™ series fishing rods are all about. It’s more than just a great freshwater or saltwater fishing rod, it’s a fishing experience you’ll always remember!
At Cajun Custom Rods®, we’ve come to know the “in’s and out’s” of a fishing rod over the years, and our ATLED™ series of rods redefines the standard for freshwater and inshore fishing rods across the nation. “Fancy” is out … fishing what works is “in.” Let’s break down the guts and gears of our ATLED™ rods and see for yourself why we know you’ll have that feeling of, “Hell Yeah! Now that’s what I’m talking about!” the next time you rip into a redfish, grip into a gator trout, or simply sweet talk the toothiest jack, blue, striped bass, largemouth, smallmouth, or walleye into your live-well:
- 100% Made in the USA
- ACURIGHT™ Split Grip Handle System:
- When it feels right, it just feels right. Right? Each of our Cajun Rods produced is ergonomically constructed such that the combination of tuning, balance, and materials serve as the focal point for your only point of contact on your fishing rod, the rod grip (or handle). So the next time you “grip it and rip it” just know that our meticulous attention to ergonomic design is to ensure that your Cajun Rod not only fishes right, but feels right from first to last cast.
- Premium Duracore™ Premium-Grade Cork Handle Material:
- When it comes to the selection of handle system components and materials used in your Cajun Rod, quality counts. Our Duracore™ Premium Grade Cork handles and grips are super dense which equate to excellent abrasion, rip-stop resistance, enhanced vibration transmission, and a comfortable touch. So look forward to grabbing a Cajun Rod, because we know you’ll enjoy your super tough Cajun-crazy sensitive fishing rod.
- Harmonic Tuning and Precision Balance:
- At Cajun, each fishing rod is tuned to ensure optimum casting, retrieval, and rod response. Every rod guide is placed based on rod kinematics (”how that particular rod behaves”). The end result is that a Cajun Rod is harmonically tuned to every rod guide and component along the rod’s longitudinal axis, allowing for a “perfect” cast every time. Cast longer, load stronger, and hit the bullseye every time with your Cajun Rod.
- End-to-end rod balancing is performed on each Cajun Rod. To the angler, this means stronger and faster hook sets because it places your fishing rod tip above your “neutral zone” and in a “ready position.” A fulcrum-balanced Cajun Rod enhances your comfort and increases overall rod performance through longer and more accurate casts. This is but one detail as to why Cajun Rods are simply a better-engineered fishing rod.
- FUJI® Quality K-Series Tangle Free Rod Guides (handles any mono, fluoro, or braid effortlessly):
- Fuji® is world-renowned and steeped in decades of innovation as an industry leading manufacturer of fishing rod components. As such, we are proud to offer each of our 65+ models of USA-manufactured Cajun Rods for 2019 exclusively using Fuji® rod guides and reel seats. “At Cajun Rods, every rod is USA-handcrafted … one at a time !”
- FUJI® Quality Reel Seat = durable, proven, and keeps your finger in touch with every vibration
- Dropshot Hook Keeper (Stainless Steel)Cajun Fiber X-Treme™ (CFX™) rod blank engineering and design = reactive hook sets:
- Casting: Blank-through Graphite Reel Seat with Cushioned Hood
- Spinning: Solid-body Graphite with Cushioned Hoods
- Smooth Taper-Transition™ (STT™) technology:
- STT™ is the result of our multi-layered approach to rod tube design utilizing CFX™ carbon fiber and graphite materials. STT™ provides uniform wall thickness and minimizes weak points in the blank as well increases durability and strength. When combined with our SCML™ and RLCF™ technology, every Cajun Rod is specifically engineered for a specific power-to-weight ratio with crisp, precise actions from rod tip to rod end. Rolled from scratch, engineered to the hilt, and designed to perform … “We build your confidence.”
- Smooth Core Micro Lattice™ (SCML™) rod blank with CFX36™ fibers:
- SCML™ is the intricate overlay of CFX™ carbon fiber and graphite materials to create a seamless mesh in every USA-engineered Cajun Rod tube. When our micro-latticed CFX™ materials are combined with a layered approach to rod blank design, the end result is that our anglers enjoy exceptional rod control, even rod loading, minimal rod twist, reduced rod weight, and increased rod sensitivity in their Cajun Rod.
- Predominantly designed to serve as “bridge” carbon fiber material, CFX36™ is also utilized as a stand-alone prepreg for select Cajun Rod designs. As an intermediate 36-ton carbon fiber material, CFX36™ yields a higher strength rod tube at reduced weights and may be combined into either SCML™ or RLCF™ rod tube fabrics, pending the intended rod design.
- Reinforced Linear Carbon Fiber™ (RLCF™) rod tube with CFX+™ material:
- RLCF™ is not just the precision alignment of our CFX™ material along the longitudinal axis of every Cajun Rod, but most importantly consists of the pressures utilized to overlap and individually bind the carbon fiber strands in our rods. Ultimately, the linear integrity this process provides further reinforces each CFX™ rod blank to support extreme end-to-end loading and optimal parabolic form of each Cajun Rod.
- CFX+™ is truly a masterpiece of USA-engineering in rod material design. Combining high strain 36 and 40-ton carbon fibers with the perfect blend of resin enables very specific actions and tapers in our Cajun Rods. The strongest and lightest carbon fiber prepreg material that we use in manufacture, CFX+™ is best utilized in SCML™ rod tube fabrics. Amazing performance and technical applications.
- Lifetime limited warranty backed by Cajun Custom Rods®
