ODM’s flagship surf rod, the Evolution, are available only as a custom-built rod, which previously has meant a wait for your rod to be built that would take a couple of months.  Grumpys has been making “custom spec” rods built on the ODM Evolution blanks available in the shop that have proven to be very popular “off the rack” options.  We are now making them available online.  Unfortunately, due to the shipping costs/restrictions on shipping one-piece rods 96 inches and over, these will be “in store pickup” only. 

First, a little information about the blanks.  Evolution combines ODM’s proprietary MMBN (Multi-Modulus Boron Nano) composite nano material which brings strength, precision, unprecedented power to weight ratio, effortless loading, and unloading, all in this highly sensitive and durable precision, weapon of the surf.  The Evolution 1pc blanks are the Next Level in The Ultimate Experience – Boron Nano Technology
