Never lose your rod again!
The Yakrods ‘Black Line’ is an industry first with a retention system specifically designed for the kayakers. As kayak anglers ourselves, we’ve felt the heartache of watching our favorite rod slide overboard into the abyss. Quality fishing gear is an investment and we want to help you protect it.
To protect your investment, every order comes standard with our custom retention system. Included in this is our 4 ft. Quiet Tether and NTA endcap to ensure your rod never leaves your side.
Built with S-Glass technology this rod's superior blank design offers superior performance without sacrificing strength. With a tensile strength 40% higher than E-Glass and a 20% higher modulus, these rods are lightweight, strong, and extremely sensitive. They deliver just the right parabolic bend to keep your tournament-winning monster pegged at the side of your yak. We paired that with the award-winning Microwave Air guides for a truly powerful combo.
We understand that space on a kayak is a premium. That’s why we’ve tuned our rods to offer a shortened handle without sacrificing balance. Our unique retention system doubles as a counter-balance giving you all-day comfort without fatigue. We coupled that with soft-touch technology for a downright luxurious experience.

I’ve been skeptical of the importance in choosing a crank bait rod. I’ve always used my fast action graphite rods until this one. After years of near zero confidence in crank baits, countless lost fish, I finally have a rod that keeps them on. Heavy enough to throw deep divers, light enough to through a square-bill. When they grab it the rod keeps them pinned deep in the blank with enough backbone to keep them from running under docks or into logs.
What a spectacular rod talk about a new level of casting distance and a great in hand feel then add its sensitivity into the rod and it leads you wondering how a rod could be so perfect all packed into one blank. This is a rod every kayak fisherman needs in his arsenal.
The Yak Rod crankbait rod balances strength and sensitivity in the blank, and is ideal for deep water cranking. This is also because the handle is not too short or long, and the end cap provides balance to the rod. Also, I love the tether feature - it's awesome for securing the rod in a kayak!
This rod cast distance with ease and has that perfect parabolic bend for a kayak fisherman. Sensitivity is beyond words and the to rip baits outta grass and clear your hooks with 1 good pop is a game charger. Top notch customer service and happy to answer questions. If anyone local to myself would like to join Mr on a fishing trip and would like to fish any of my yakrods I'd be happy to put them in your hands to try for yourself.
These rods are definitely going to change my fishing game! The parabolical bend on these are phenomenal to say the least. Can cast much further and accurate with the microwave guides. The grip is awesome when it becomes wet and feels great in the hand and are shorter which helps keep the butt out of the way when pedaling in the yak. The built in leash attachment is also a really nice feature to have. Top notch rods for sure!!!
