Edge rods are designed by the legendary rod builder Gary Loomis. After decades of rod development Gary Loomis has taken it to the next level once again.
The Black Widow series is the flagship offering from the Edge Rods arsenal.
With the introduction of new technologies and design a faultless series of rods have been created that offer unsurpassed sensitivity to the angler.
Exclusive to Edge the Black Widow Handles, made from 100% carbon fiber, also deliver increased sensitivity over cork, EVA or carbon fiber wrapped alternatives.
The Black Widow Handles paired with the high performance HM & IM blanks put these rods into a class of their own!!
To maintain lightness and sensitivity Black Widow rods are fitted with a mix of Fuji Sic K guides and black titanium recoil guides. The unique guide systems adds to the feel translated through the rod back to the angler.
You will never miss a bite on a Black Widow!!
IM: The core material at Edge. Our IM provides a performance level that “punches above its weight,” while still having “everyday” fishing toughness. IM is a great choice for a wide range of blanks.
HM: When even our IM isn't good enough. This is a high-modulus, Paper Carbon Scrim (PCS) material that creates a truly exceptional blank. Want the best possible performance from your blank? Here you go.
"Raw Carbon". All of our blanks come in what we call raw carbon - no added color, coating or weight. Our blanks are sanded with a 15-micron grit and then smoothly buffed. We feel that such a pure, unadulterated finish allows our blanks to perform at their unencumbered best.
