Gerald Swindle is a tinkerer with a very creative mind for modifying fishing accessories to make them function more efficiently and perform more effectively.
Couple “G-Man’s” mechanical mind with two Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year titles, and a rich history as part of the Quantum family, and you’ve got a recipe for building a great series of rods at a price reflective of his humble beginnings.
Actually he designed (5) G-Force rods made of best-in-the-business 30-ton Toray™ graphite for a series of sticks with great sensitivity, plenty of backbone, and enough forgiveness in the tip on certain models for lures like topwater poppers and shallow crankbaits.
Swindle’s creations include a 6’ 9” for poppers and small crankbaits, a 7-footer he calls his all-around workhorse for spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, and Zara Spooks, as well as a 7’ 2” rod he’s calling the best chatterbait rod he’s ever thrown, a 7’ 4” rod for swimjigs and frogs, and a 7’ 6” fast-action pitchin’ stick.
All rods are just $99, and Swindle is already using them in Bassmaster Elite Series competition to cash way bigger checks than that.
