Revenant™ Fishing Rods

Introducing the most sensitive and toughest rod you have ever fished, our Revenant™ series rods are designed to “Wake the Dead” when you boat flip and dead-lift your next trophy. Utilizing our proprietary AirSteel™ tube technology and coupled with our Cajun Fiber X-Treme™ (CFX™) fibers, we’ve purposefully designed the Revenant™ series to be your next “go-to” and “do-everything” fishing rod. With the most aggressive rod taper in a rod that dead-lifts over 15 lbs of weight!  The next time you line up to swing for the fence on your hook-set, we know you’ll be thankful you’re wielding a Revenant™ series rod. The new Revenant™ series are initially offered in either casting or spinning models!

We set out on a mission to develop a rod that could truly serve as not just your “do everything” fishing rod but could excel as your “do anything” rod.   With over a year in research and development, our Air Steel™ tube technology utilized in the Revenant™ rod blank is truly ground-breaking in the sportfishing industry!  Take a look at our product testing video (see the above “Video” tab) and you’ll agree that the Revenant™ is just one tough fishing rod.  After you enjoy an entire day of effortless casting (and longer distance to reach those “sweet spots”  than you ever have before), feeling less fatigued with each subsequent cast, and having unrelated confidence as you boat-flip fish after fish, you’ll know that the Revenant™ is just one badass fishing rod.

Each Revenant™ series spinning and casting fishing rod is manufactured using World-class Fuji® rod guides, hardware, and reel seats that are precisely positioned, balanced, and tuned to each AirSteel™ rod blank.  Yes, it takes a little bit longer to manufacture one of the Revenant series rods due to the meticulous attention to detail that each rod receives, but  when you fish a Revenant over the course of the next lifetime, you’ll realize that the old sating is true, “Great things come to those who wait” and even better, “Dynamite comes in small packages!”

So once again, American engineering, ingenuity, and manufacturing is taking the lead at Cajun Rods® because our Revenant series fishing rods are the end result to provide you even more enhanced durability, improved casting distance, better casting accuracy, more sensitivity, and superb hook-set and fish-fighting control.  Revenant™ rods … named so you can get back in the game and “Wake the Dead on your next hook set!”

Each Revenant™ fishing rod is engineered and fabricated using our proprietary AirSteel™ rod tube engineering on our Cajun Fiber X-treme™ (CFX™) rod blanks, leveraging the following technologies:

  • 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™ EVA Handle Material:
    • When it comes to the selection of handle system components and materials used in your Cajun Rod, quality counts.  Our Duracore™ Premium EVA 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® Concept Stainless 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 45 models of USA-manufactured Cajun Rods for 2017 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
  • AirSteel™ rod tube construction and engineering:
    • Utilizing “out of the box” engineering and Euclidean geometric design principles, our AirSteel rod tubes do not compress when placed under load.  In fact, the top, bottom, and sidewall construction of each CFX™ rod blank fabricated using AirSteel™ construction is specifically designed to share and accept loads without sacrificing deformation of the rod tube.  This ensures consistent spherical rod tubes even under extreme pressure while maintaining sensitivity and the lightweight design anglers expect.
  • 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 CFX30™ 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.
    • USA-manufactured to Cajun engineering specifications, this is our proprietary recipe of intermediate 30-ton carbon fiber and resin materials. Precisely measured and combined, our CFX30™ prepreg serves as a staple ingredient in many of our world-class Cajun Rods. Our CFX30™ prepreg is used in the produciton of both SCML™ and RLCF™ rod tube fabrics.
  • Reinforced Linear Carbon Fiber™  (RLCF™) rod tube with CFX30™ 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.
    • USA-manufactured to Cajun engineering specifications, this is our proprietary recipe of intermediate 30-ton carbon fiber and resin materials.
