Discover the Difference

Trika rods are built different, cast different and feel different. The secret is our rod blank, which is engineered, designed, and manufactured in the USA. We use a proprietary weave and layering process, which makes our rods lighter and more sensitive than the competition.
There are more than 17,000 nerve endings in the human hand detecting vibrations from 5Hz – 150Hz. Trika rods transfer data to your hand better because our proprietary weave process makes the rods light, quick and crisp. Independent testing proves Trika rods are twice (2X) as sensitive as high-end competitive rods.
Trika's proprietary weave and layering process eliminates recoil and tip oscillation for longer and more accurate casts. Up to 18% longer casts keep your bait in the strike zone longer.

Spinning Rod Test Results

Trika contracted Applied Technical Services (ATS), a leader in testing and statistical analysis, to independently conduct an unbiased sensitivity evaluation against the top competitive fishing rods in the industry.

  • A graph that displays the spinning rod sensitivity and hertz data points of Trika fishing rods compared to five other competitors

    Sensitivity

    ATS independent testing was done using all 7' medium power, fast action rods with the same line and lure weight ratings.

  • A graph that displays the spinning rod casting distance data points in feet of Trika fishing rods compared to five other competitors

    Casting Distance

    Internal testing was done with all five competitive rods and Trika using the same reel/settings, line, and weight 20" from tip.

  • A graph that displays the spinning rod weight in ounces of Trika rods compared to five other leading competitors

    Weight

    A calibrated scale was used and the weight was recorded.

  • Research

    We have spent the last two years designing, building and testing rods built with new to market materials and processes.  The results speak for themselves, lighter, more sensitive and longer casting rods.

  • Testing

    In testing we bent and broke hundreds of our rods and competitors rods. During this time we tried many materials and processes that led us to our magic formula and the results speak for themselves.
