Castaway cut away every ounce of excess weight to make the Skeleton Casting Rods some of the lightest rods on the market. Castaway's new patent pending super-exposed reel seats are designed to put you in contact with more of the rod blank - allowing you to feel even the slightest bump on your bait. Whether you are fishing a jig, walking a top-water or dragging a worm, there is a technique-specific Skeleton Rod dialed in for your fishing technique. Equipped with a premium Alconite Guide System, increased sensitivity, castability, and accuracy come standard. Castaway Skeleton Rods are known for their sensitivity, but Castaway goes through great measures to ensure their durability as well. A rigorous flex test inspection of each blank safeguards against any defects. While a triple coat of UV protected finish is also applied to every Skeleton Rod for preventative breakdown measures, even going so far as to coat behind every guide for a stronger hold and to prevent corrosion. No "bones" about it. Try a Castaway Skeleton Casting Rod - at the end of the day you'll be glad you did.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I love using these rods to fish the slop on Lake Okeechobee. The extra heavy Invicta and skeleton rods helped me with a win in the BFL super tournament on Lake Okeechobee this year. I do have to warn you though, if you set the hook on a fish near the boat be careful you may get a bass in your face.

Comments: I used to fish several CastAway rods back in the 90's. Then they kind of disappeared. I was given a 7'6" flipping stick to review, and I was pleasantly surprised. For a large rod, it is balanced well. It has a nice, X-fast tip, and it is light and sensitive. I'm glad to see a good product by one of my old favorites. I paired mine with a Lew's Super Duty for punching mats with creature baits and big jigs, and it does the trick. I think I'll try it for bronzeye popping frogs too. I think it is a solid purchase at this price point.

Comments: Picked one of these up at a local tackle store, and man.. These things are freaking light! I was surprised how balanced these things were and how light it was, and it was the 7'6"!(those were the only ones Gander Mt. had in stock). I couldn't imagine how light the 7' or 7'3"'s are. I definitely think I'm going to be getting me one here soon.
