Stoked Double Hand rods offer outstanding value for the price. They are built with the same remarkable finish as the single hand versions. Undoubtedly one of the lightest rod ranges in its price bracket. Well-balanced and easy-to-cast, medium fast actions with a forgiving curve that absorbs beginner errors and produces a lot of “feel” in the casting stroke. Compared to the Elevation these rods feature a slightly lower modulus carbon 24T/30T/36T vs. 36T/40T which make them a joy to cast. Stoked Double Hand rods work equally well loaded with a Scandi Head or a Skagit rig.
All Stoked rods feature the latest in materials and production technology. This allows us to make entry level rods at a totally game changing level. The Stoked series also features many of the same eco-friendly components and processes as our Elevation rods do, making them a great choice for the environmentally cautious angler. All Stoked rods from 2021 and on will feature Eco-friendly PVD coated guides in gun smoke finish. They are delivered in rod bag and a PP- (Polypropylene) tube with strong recycled Polyester fabric cover.

- Blanks are painted in a translucent olive/green color with a hint of metallic flakes.
- Cork handles with no rubber cork reinforcements. This reduces the levels of epoxy-resins needed in the grips.
- For the coatings on blank, guides and the mounting glue for grips and reel seat, we use a low-toxic Epoxy, tested and approved with extremely low levels of regulated chemicals. This also adds to a better working atmosphere in the assembly phase of production, reducing health hazardous odors to a minimum.
- Rods are mounted with eco-friendly PVD coated guides in gun smoke finish.
- Rod tube covers are made of recycled REPREVE™ polyester.
- The rod tubes are made of recyclable Polypropylene (PP), they are lighter and have 20% lower diameters than standard PVC tubes. This will save space and money when rods are transported both from the factory and by the user. Given its durability and the possibility to melt and reform into plastic pellets, PP is both reusable and recyclable for producing new goods.
- All rods are 4-piece.
