Cashion ICON Inshore Rod Review [VIDEO]
Dr. Matthew Cashion is THE mastermind behind fishing rod design and building at Cashion Rods.
Dr. Cashion has his Ph.D. in Chemistry with a focus on polymer science from Virginia Tech.
The focus of Cashion Rods and their rod building techniques is centered around resins and the materials used to assemble rod blanks.
Dr. Cashion designed a proprietary resin that acts as the binding glue for all of the carbon fiber and graphite rods
These rods are lighter in weight and have stronger bonding.
In graduate school, Dr. Cashion was making epoxies for carbon fiber work.
For those of you that don’t already know, that is basically what a fishing rod is: carbon fiber and epoxy.
Cashion Rods are made here in the U.S.A. in Sanford, NC.
Cashion ICON Inshore Casting Series
The ICON Inshore Series has quickly become one of our favorite fishing rods for inshore applications.
We’ve been hearing for quite a while now that many anglers want to use baitcasting reels for saltwater fishing.
The inshore saltwater space is a niche market because it is very technique specific.
Guides and anglers alike want very specific action and power in their inshore rods.
The Cashion ICON Inshore Casting Series Rod is designed to have a strong backbone with a super fast tip.
This rod is designed to fish around heavy structure.
The strength and fast tip work together to help you pull fish out from structures and bridge pilings.
However, casting is first and foremost when you’re fishing around docks or bridges because you need to get your bait in that specific zone.
Furthermore, the combination of a fast tip and Microguides increases casting accuracy and distance.
Microguides conserve energy in the plane of the blank.
Plus, you get more guides on the rod blank itself.
The more guides on a rod, the more contact points and increase in vibrations throughout the rod.
Rod Blank Details
The rod blank itself is an Unsanded “Raw” Blank which means there is no additional coating.
In turn, this rod is lightweight with increased sensitivity.
The goal is backbone and power transfer for inshore application when fishing around heavy structure.
On a spinning rod, your line feeds onto the spool at a 90-degree angle.
However, with a baitcasting setup, you have more of a true winch.
The higher-modulus graphite and lightweight resin helps reduce the overall weight of the rod blank.
Lightweight, sensitivity, and power.
Those are the 3 main components of a high-quality inshore saltwater fishing rod.
Every fine detail of the Cashion ICON Inshore Casting Series was thought out and constructed with intent.
We are beyond excited to add Cashion Rods to our online tackle shop!
