    Batson Enterprises is proud to announce an exciting new program that will be launching in four select retail stores in California. Each of these stores will host 32 select RainShadow Rod Blanks as well as built examples utilizing ALPS and ForeCast Components. Everything from saltwater to freshwater rod blanks, complete with information on different actions and features on over 500 models.

    Never before has there been an opportunity to feel so many different RainShadow Rod Blanks outfitted with ALPS and ForeCast Components in one place.

    New to Custom Rods?
    Looking for more than an off the shelf option? This is the perfect opportunity to get a custom rod built to your exact specifications! Come into any of the California locations to see the rod blanks up close and personal, plus get ideas from our custom built examples. Come speak with experienced staff to get any question answered, taking the guesswork out.

    Every location is a Batson approved rod builder, with assistance from the store sales team you can pick everything for your very own custom rod. Or order the rod blank and components and build it yourself. Get the best for less!

    Custom Rod Builder ALERT!
    Come in and try out the new series of RainShadow rod blanks! Get that feeling in your hand rather than just information on a page in a catalog.

    Take the guess work out and have a true understanding of some of RainShadows most popular rod blanks and the quality that comes with the RainShadow name attached.

    Meet Bill Batson
    You’ll also get a chance to meet the CEO of Batson Enterprises, Inc, Bill Batson. This is a great opportunity to meet and ask questions about rod building and custom rods. The wealth of knowledge about rod building industry/art/craft will help aid you in finding your direction. Plus get a Team RainShadow hat and a copy of our massive catalog for coming out.

    Hi Bob,
    Soon there will be something in Nor Cal. Yes.. Anglers Workshop was a big lost to some. We are currently looking for someone in the Portland, OR area. Of course for WA, you can always just stop on by either Utmost or Batson!

    Dondo,
    As of right now i believe they will only carry the blanks. But they have an open account with Batson and can order anything from the catalog.
    Catalogs will be at each location. They also will be getting a series of CharkBait rods featuring Rainshadow/Forecast/ALPS products>> built by Saltydawg very soon.
    I hope they are ready when i set the rack in 2 weeks in the HB location.
