Where your custom fishing rod dreams become reality. 

Custom made rods at extremely affordable prices.

Take your savings to the next level by shopping at our online store. We provide around-the-clock customer service, and our selection is simply wonderful. Browse our inventory to find just what you’re looking for.  Please inquire about pricing and options to make your own custom fishing rod to your specifications.  We are extremely affordable for the outstanding quality we offer you.  We stand behind every product we make.

We stand by all our rods.  What that means is, we will warranty all defects or problems caused by us during the rod making process for 1 year. We will not cover any normal wear and tear items or issues that come from misuse of the rod.  If you have any issues please reach out to us and we will discuss the next steps.  In case we have to replace your rod and since we use natural wood products for the grips we cannot insure an exact match to what you had. There will be slight variations in the wood.  We’ll do our best to get as close to what you had. 


Our Origins

R. Hite Custom Rods is a trendsetting online store, offering our first-rate products and exceptional customer service to shoppers from the comfort of their own homes. We’re a family run business made up of innovators and forward-thinkers, with the drive and wherewithal to constantly update and improve the online shopping experience. Our online store has become synonymous with quality, and we ensure a continuous variety of fantastic merchandise that fit any budget.  We’ve started to make our own fishing rods to meet our certain criteria, quality, and specifications to suit our own needs, when we couldn’t find what we needed sitting on a store shelf.  We want to help other fishermen and women with quality products that suit their individual specifications and needs.
