    Did I enjoy this video?

    Absolutely!!!

  3. Casey Jarzyna on January 15, 2020 at 9:09 am

    After watching this I see myself purchasing some of these American made quality rods.

    I’ve always bought Loomis rods over the years but after this video I might give your rods a try. Thanks for the video. (I live in Kansas City)

    Damn I love my cashion rods. But let’s improve the reel seats on the spinning rods

    I am your 599th LIKE 😁👍🏻
    Thanks for showing us the process.
    I felt bad for the guy putting on epoxy all day…I bet he is pretty high most of the time from it

  7. kvandy5989 on January 15, 2020 at 9:16 am

    And on that note I think I’ll just go ahead and order that Tatula rod

  8. Team Jesus Outdoors on January 15, 2020 at 9:19 am

    Nice to see rods made in USA!!!

  9. Tony Lor on January 15, 2020 at 9:20 am

    Companies like Cashion definitely deserve more popularity than the companies that simply slap their names on imported China rods, aka “favorite fishing”.

  10. Rolo on January 15, 2020 at 9:23 am

    Didnt know they were so close and actually roll the blanks and everything… here….I need 3 rods, and plan to go w/cashion now based off this and fat cat LOL. Not sure if you see these John but do you have a preference you use for slinging little johns?

  11. Chris Stockner on January 15, 2020 at 9:26 am

    It’s awesome seeing how my favorite rod’s are mad. Visiting their facility is on my bucket list. I currently own 15 Cashion rod’s and saving to get one of them fancy Crew’s Missile square bill rod’s.

  12. Rebecca Cooksey on January 15, 2020 at 9:27 am

    Your rods are shit and heavy try English carp and match rods

  13. murray prosser on January 15, 2020 at 9:27 am

    You guys need a distributor in Australia as flick stix for glide baits are becoming very popular here especially in QLD aust

  14. Electrick Flame on January 15, 2020 at 9:28 am

    This definitely answers the question, "Why does these rods cost so much?"
    I am all in for my sixth Cashion Rod. I love the transparency, honesty, and the way the boss gives a damn about his employees, also how the employees respond by giving their best effort, which results in a superior product for the customer!

  15. vladimir jozic on January 15, 2020 at 9:31 am

    What’s the starting price of the rods and do they make em for egg beaters or just over head reels I’m intrested becuase I throw small lures from 25mm to 60mm lures I need a rod that’s 2 to 4kg I use surface ,sub surface ,deep divers and suspending lures sorry I’m australian so my slang my be different

  16. GSPpoint on January 15, 2020 at 9:31 am

    "Absolutely"

  17. Sean Kelley on January 15, 2020 at 9:35 am

    Great video of how a great fishing rod is made. Glad to see employees taking pride in a their work.

  18. CHIPPO FISHING on January 15, 2020 at 9:36 am

    very cool i fish for crappie right down the road from you in Vass, NC

  19. River City Fishing on January 15, 2020 at 9:36 am

    That was highly interesting and insightful, especially as both an Angler and an aerospace Composite Buyer. So thanks to John and Cashion Rods for all the insight and detailed process breakdown. I buy drawing based molds, prepregs, mold release agents, peel plies, vacuum bagging films, abrasives,epoxies, mold cleaning chemicals, all the good stuff, on a daily basis…which has me contemplating a career switch, over to the fishing industry =)

  20. 5131dan on January 15, 2020 at 9:37 am

    Great video, informational and American High Quality. Thanks for sharing

  21. Good Ol Boy #76 on January 15, 2020 at 9:38 am

    I hope I get to were I have a rod of my own some day. It would be awesome to have a Good Ol Boy #76 rod and reel some day.

  22. Charlie Boutin on January 15, 2020 at 9:38 am

    Thanks! I build rods with purchased blanks and have over 40 others, from 2wt flyrods to extra heavy saltwater but have never seen the procedure. I guess I’ll have to purchase a few of these to check them out! 😂 (Now I’m working on how to build a split bamboo flyrod)😐 It never ends! Best Wishes for Big fishes!🎣

  23. Kyle Scott on January 15, 2020 at 9:40 am

    Great stuff

  24. Chris DiGiovanna on January 15, 2020 at 9:41 am

    Need to fix the description… Cashion Rods is based in Sanford, NC, not Stanford. They’re just south of where I live.

    Also, great video! Looks like I will be getting my first Cashion rod at the fishing expo next week!

  25. IAM Crankinstein on January 15, 2020 at 9:41 am

    I did not realize they did the whole process in US. Thought they just put guides on like every other rod that says made in USA. I 100% will purchase one for my next rod.

  26. KevDev on January 15, 2020 at 9:43 am

    I’m impressed.

  27. James W on January 15, 2020 at 9:43 am

    Matt is looking like he wants to kiss you

  28. MrBrymstond on January 15, 2020 at 9:44 am

    Unwavering perfection, I wish I could afford one. I would need a medium to heavy action for Tuna, Striper’s, and a light to ultra light for Trout. I used all sorts of poles that claimed to be the best and they broke up where the handle starts. These are made like a knife with the tang through, totally awesome.

  29. Kiko Francisco on January 15, 2020 at 9:45 am

    American craftsmanship … nothin’ beats it!

  30. Fishin2The Max on January 15, 2020 at 9:46 am

    Great tour ! Will be looking for these with deep appreciation for American workers handcrafting these fine instruments

  31. GSPpoint on January 15, 2020 at 9:46 am

    I have 4 cashion rods. Absolutely, absolutely.

  32. Lance Gunn on January 15, 2020 at 9:47 am

    Hey close to my hometown! Nice tour of the facility

  33. Donald Stephensen on January 15, 2020 at 9:48 am

    I’m looking for a 7’ultra light trout rod.

  34. Bella Wright on January 15, 2020 at 9:49 am

    Made in the u.s.a.means costs more money…no offence. If u could see how most brands of rods are made you would see it’s all basically the same.Shakespere ugly stik for 39.95 is as tough a rod as it gets and it’s been proven over and over and did i mention 39.95.

  35. TAMELESSTGR on January 15, 2020 at 9:49 am

    Fantastic, love seeing the entire process

  36. MrBrymstond on January 15, 2020 at 9:49 am

    Make Fishing Rods Great Again. MFRGA!

  37. Chris Hankins on January 15, 2020 at 9:50 am

    Very impressive and also nice to see him bragging on his employees. Management from all kinds of businesses could learn from this guy

  38. egomaniac247 on January 15, 2020 at 9:51 am

    Thanks, I’ve been looking for an American made rod….now if only I could find a legitimate American made reel. There’s a company in Pennsylvania but they’re mostly saltwater and REALLY expensive…$500 and up.

  39. Chris Hankins on January 15, 2020 at 9:52 am

    24 dislikes must be the China rod companies getting sick to their stomachs 😜

  40. James Hollis on January 15, 2020 at 9:55 am

    Where did you "spline" the blank?

  41. Reel Kidd Fishing on January 15, 2020 at 9:56 am

    Big John Crews fan. I’m from the Salem VA area and Missile Baits are the Bomb. So if he uses Cashion, they’re good to go!! Get you one!

  42. martin cardy on January 15, 2020 at 9:58 am

    IMpo

  43. Ярн Ялр on January 15, 2020 at 9:58 am

    Xesta, Tict, Shimano делают спиннинги гораздо лучше. Спиннинг Soare xtune это недостижимый уровень для этого гаража.

  44. Peter Slonsky on January 15, 2020 at 10:00 am

    Blanks for us custom rod builders?
    Thank you for the vid and keeping it USA baby!

  45. florida bass edition on January 15, 2020 at 10:00 am

    That’s amazing I’m going to buy my rods from them. Great job.

  46. TangoMike on January 15, 2020 at 10:02 am

    Sanford or I guess Saan-Ferrd works. LOL I miss NC.

  47. Luca Brazzi-Fishing on January 15, 2020 at 10:02 am

    just subbed awesome video. I love that these rods are 100% made in the US. And even in better in NC my 2nd home state. Can you use these rods for bigger fish in the salt? I am embarrassed to say I never heard of these rods. I will definitely buy one or more. Great job and hope these guys are successful and grow and stay in the US

  48. Justin Shrawder on January 15, 2020 at 10:03 am

    Cool tour!! Thanks for that!!

  49. Ben Parkhurst on January 15, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Soooo much respect to this crew. All I can say is "that was cool"

  50. ronald castrovinci on January 15, 2020 at 10:05 am
