B&R Outlaw Rods, when performance is a necessity!

 

Throughout my years of fishing I have seen a lot of different types of fishing rods, but the “B&R Outlaw Rods” are everything they claim they are and more.  The B&R Outlaw Rods Company is owner by Robert M. Nosbisch and they are based out of Collinsville, Illinois. 

 

Recently I had the opportunity to talk with Robert about the B&R Outlaw Rods, which I believe is one of the best deals out there for both the “Weekend Warrior” and “Pro Tournament” fishermen.  These rods are amazing and you won’t believe how affordable they are.

 

The B&R Outlaw Rods Company was initiated in September of 2004, as a result of the overwhelming demand by both the “Weekend Warrior” and “Pro Tournament” fishermen for a high quality, U.S.A. manufactured rod that can be purchased at an affordable price.  That’s right the B&R Outlaw Rods are manufactured right here in the United States and the rod blanks are B&R Outlaw Rods, not some other rod companies blanks.

 

B&R Outlaw Rods offer both custom hand crafted bait caster rods and spinning rods that are manufactured with the most up to date technology and materials.  The B&R Outlaw Rods are designed to handle the stress of hard fishing in rough conditions, extremely light in overall weight, balanced at the reel seat, and they have a great back bone when you need it.  But even more important the B&R Outlaw Rods are extremely sensitive and they are designed with the exclusive “ALERT” responsive / sensitive tip.  All of the B&R Outlaw Rods are equipped with the Fuji® ALCONITE “New Concept” Guides, which are designed to be lighter, stronger, sensitive, and provide a greater durability for maximum performance.  The B&R Outlaw Rods are made with a custom graphite blank, which extends throughout the entire handle, allowing you to feel the lightest fish bite.  

 

Robert Nosbisch explained to me that they currently have the following line-up of fishing rods, which are all one piece rods:

Robert Nosbisch further stated that they are in the process of producing an additional sixteen (16) new rod styles that will be available to the public within the next nine months, which will include telescopic rods.  The bait caster telescopic rods will be offered in 7’6" Med/Heavy, 7’6" Heavy, 8’0" Med/Heavy, & 8’0" Heavy.  The telescopic spinning rods will be offered in 7’6" Light, 7’6" Med, 7’6" Med/Heavy, 8’0" Light, 8’0" Med, 8’0" Med/Heavy, 8’6" Med/Light, 8’6" Med/Heavy, 9’0" Med/Light, & 9’0" Med/Heavy. The telescopic rods will be designed with the same graphite and materials that are being utilized in the current B&R Outlaw Rods.

 

In designing the B&R Outlaw Rods, Robert wanted to make everything simple for the fishermen, so he came up with a warranty that works like this, if you break the rod, all you have to do is give the broken rod back to them, along with $75.00 and B&R Outlaw Rods will give you a new rod.  They don’t even ask how you broke it.  They want to keep it simple.  Ninety-eight percent of all fishing rods are broken by us the fishermen, so why pay a lot of extra money for a warranty that you may never use.

 

The craftsmanship and quality of “B&R OUTLAW RODS” have been compared to some of the best name brand rods on the market, at a fraction of the price.  Robert said that he would be the first to tell you that there are a lot of very good rod companies out there, but all that B&R Outlaw Rods is asking is if any weekend warrior and / or tournament fishermen are in the market for a new rod, that they take a look at what B&R Outlaw Rods has to offer.

 

There are a lot of weekend warriors and tournament fishermen throughout the United States and Canada calling the B&R Outlaw Rods, the “Believe & Receive Outlaw Rods”.  Now, Robert says his two boys are calling them the “Boys & Robert Outlaw Rods”. 

 

 

Robert said that the bottom line is that B&R Outlaw Rods takes pride in their uncompromising commitment to providing both the “Weekend Warrior” and “Pro Tournament” fishermen with the hottest rods on the market at the very best prices.  B&R Outlaw Rods philosophy is that every custom rod that leaves the manufacturing plant is designed as if it is being built for their own personal use.

 

B&R Outlaw Rods made me a believer, so if performance is a necessity when it comes to your fishing rods, then B&R Outlaw Rods is what you are looking for!
