Alvey Style Rods
“The Right Rod for the Right Reel”
For a balanced outfit and optimum performance, we offer a selection of rods designed specifically for the Alvey Side Cast Reel. Each rod is designed to match the model of Alvey reel indicated in the description. They have the recommended stripper guide size and spacing (distance from reel to first guide), and reversed reel seats. All models have foregrips sized for holding the rod in front of the reel for a fly rod type balance. Butt grips are short, but still long enough to fit in a sand spike or rod holder. For surf casting, especially, this design is much less tiring than having to reach out to the reel when casting and retrieving as is typical with long butt grip style rods.
These Alvey style rods are custom made in China to the requirements of Alvey Reels Australia. With the exception of the graphite Model AL650GTS, all rods are fiberglass with graphite reel seats, black foam grips, aluminum oxide guides with black stainless steel frames, and colored guide wrappings with accent borders and decorative wrapping in front of the foregrip. All rods are fitted with an Alvey Open Runner.
