We want to get you the perfect rod to fit your every need in any situation. Working with you and building a personal relationship is important to us.
Why Choose Prolite Rods over the "others"? As a customer, this a question we make every company answer. While we are searching for a product, we think about what we have learned from others, read on the internet, or experienced. We end up asking yourselves questions like:
Why this product?
Why this brand?
Why this company?
In the end, the real question we ask is... Do I trust this company?
Its so true! The question we always ask ourselves is whether we trust the company and the product they are offering. At some point, there will be companies that earn our trust. Prolite Rod Technology may not earn your trust over night, but our hope is that after seeing the passion and excitement that we build into every rod, and after experiencing great customer service, that we will begin to earn your trust and you can be confident in your Prolite products. Trust is based on the experience and if we can deliver positive experiences then the trust level grows. This goes for both the experience of both the products and the customer service.
“Trust can take years to build, and seconds to break.”
It’s not your job to give a company your trust, they’ve got to earn it. We strive to have the best customer service with superior quality showing the pride we have in our craftsmanship.
Prolite is dedicated to building rods with the least amount of weight possible. For example, our guide layouts use more, smaller guides which dramatically reduces the overall weight of a rod. Less weight on the end of the rod allows it to more effectively transfer vibrations without being dampened, creating more sensitivity and better balanced feel.
Our manufacturing facility is located in Tumwater, WA. This is where we hand-build every Prolite Rod.
