Custom Rods by Master Rodsmiths

Every angler is different, so why are you using mass-produced rods? At FishStyx Custom Rods in Florence, South Carolina, we design, build, and fit fishing rods for individual customers.

Land More Fish

FishStyx rods are all designed and built with one primary goal in mind — "Land More Fish." In the end, converting casts and strikes to catches is the key to success. We design and build our rods to facilitate ease and comfort in casting, proper setups for enticing strikes, and outstanding hook setting functionality. But the greatest benefit is putting the fish in the anglers' hands.

Custom Rods

Find the perfect rod for your next fishing adventure! Whether you're angling for a world record largemouth bass on your favorite lake or enjoying the tranquility of a secluded trout stream while you cast a fly, we have a great rod for your needs. At FishStyx, we believe that any custom rod should be designed with your targeted species in mind. We value our customers' thought and input, and always make sure we deliver the exact rod you desire.


After we have determined what kind of rod you want, we take you through our fitting process to ensure optimal performance. With this foundation, we design the rod and tailor it to your tastes and choices. Let us know what color you want and whether you want to customize your rod with "bling." Our goal is to deliver a rod that looks, feels, and performs just the way you want it to. Dream it, and it can be yours!
