United Composites produces four primary series of rods, plus specialty series like Rail Rods and Boat Rods. The Challenger Elite series are the most reasonably priced rods in their line. The Elite Composite Series of Dual Helix with uni-directional fiberglass blanks are three ply, dual helix build with carbon fiber and then an additional ply making use of uni-directional fiberglass. The exceptional lift these rods attain is a result of the uni-directional ‘glass (UC is the only firm using this unique fiberglass in their build). Dual Helix construction provides the hoop strength, the ‘glass provides the lift.  Other manufacturers use dual oriented ‘glass to gain hoop strength – at a lesser degree than UC accomplishes.

These rods make use of very good quality braid safe ALPS stainless steel guides, lightweight EVA grips, and composite reel seat. The standard build rods do not have gimbals, if desired you can select the C version Challenger Elite rods with metal ALPS seat and gimbal and hypalon grips for $40 upcharge as described below. Please note, we also have most of these models available custom produced by our friend Salty Dawg, cost is higher but there are some upgrades.
