Fitzgerald Stunner HD Series Fishing Rod Overview
We met up with Ben Stein over at Fitzgerald Rods to learn more about their Fitzgerald Stunner HD Rod!!
We had an absolute blast at iCast speaking with different vendors and promoting Salt Strong in the process.
Fitzgerald wanted to create something for nearshore and offshore anglers that simply won’t break.

A lot of our Insider Members have started venturing nearshore and offshore for kingfish, red snapper, grouper, or really anything within 20 or so miles from shore.
In turn, lots of requests have come in to add a stronger, heavy-duty offshore fishing rod to our tackle shop.
We’ve got the larger size reels in the shop covered and now we’ve got offshore fishing rods from Fitzgerald.
Stunner HD Series
Fitzgerald introduced their Stunner HD Series of Fishing Rods that are designed to withstand and reel in some heavy fish from deep depths.
The 7′ Heavy is perfect for cobia, grouper, red snapper, or even over slot snook fishing, and not to mention, tarpon.
The thing that separates this rod from the rest is it is not solely a graphite or carbon blank.
Stunner HD Rods are 80/20 split between graphite and fiberglass (E-Glass).
That actually allows Fitzgerald to add fiberglass in the mix to enhance the structural integrity of the rod blank.
Most rods nowadays are built using different grades or qualities of graphite.
While graphite is very strong, it’s lightweight, and sensitive to the touch which is what is so appealing to inshore anglers.
But when it comes to offshore fishing, the incorporation of fiberglass in a rod blank only works in your favor.
Fiberglass rods can handle a heavy load and take on lots of pressure graphite and carbon rods would not be able to withstand.
Guides & Reel Seat
Another element of this rod to note is that it is quite parabolic for the materials.
Fitzgerald incorporated American Tackle Guides on the Stunner HD Series.
American Tackle Guides are a quad-leg design that allows the blank to flex along with the guide frame.
That means there are no flat spots or break points at all in the rod.
With other types of guides, they create flat points when the rod is under a load because the guide stays straight.
This creates break points all over the rod.
Quad-leg designed guides bend with the rod to provide enhanced stability and eliminate those weak points.
Furthermore, the reel seat on the Stunner HD Series is crafted out of aluminum.
The last thing you want when fighting a giant offshore fish is your reel spinning on the reel seat.
Fitzgerald implemented a channel-lock aluminum seat with double-locking rings.
You should feel confident in your gear every time you hit the water.
Especially if you are miles offshore, gear failure means the end of your long-awaited offshore fishing trip.
These rods are now available in our online tackle shop in either a 7′ Heavy or a 7’4 Extra-Heavy.
