RCW is a small rod building shop in Melbourne, Florida.
We are the only rod building shop in the USA with access to Japanese made blanks.

 The Science

Having a background in engineering and a solid understanding of physics, RCW utilizes this knowledge to every custom rod that we build. With that in mind, RCW also takes into account the blank’s action, power, line & reel to be used and employs the right number of guides, using the right sizes and putting these guides at the proper position to allow the line to follow the curvature of the blank in order to utilize the rods full power.

RCW employs a modified version of the KR concept, an improved version of the NGC (new guide concept) for use with braided line. The concept in a nutshell is to “use more but smaller guides at the proper location for greater sensitivity, greater castability, increased accuracy, greater hooking power, reduced line twist and maximum rod power.
