Just released, new review of the cutting edge RainShadow Eternity2 rod blank featuring Nano Compound Technology by Wired2Fish at: http://wired2fish.scout.com/story/1548638-rainshadow-eternity2-review?s=537

"This rod casts better than any rod in my collection, and I have to think it's because of the numbers and spacing of the Dyna-Tek coated premium titanium guides. I use this rod for a variety of techniques but have found it works exceptionally well as a pitching rod. The line just flows through the guides with minimal rod slap, and it has plenty of power." Says Terry Brown of Wired2Fish

If you have not had a chance to own a RainShadow Eternity2, now is the time to act!

BATSON ENTERPRISES PARTNERS WITH NORTH FORK COMPOSITES, A GARY LOOMIS COMPANY.

Sequim, WA - North Fork Composites, a Gary Loomis founded USA rod blank manufacturing company, announced today that they have entered into an exclusive partnership for an indefinite strategic deal with Batson Enterprises. The new, innovative partnership leverages the respective strengths of Batson Enterprises and North Fork Composites to create a compelling value for both companies.

Batson Enterprises is a leading rod blank and rod components manufacturer/wholesaler, distributing their products and services worldwide. The company serves a large range of customers from OEM, Private Labels, Retailers, and rod builders. 

"The Batson family and Gary Loomis have been friends for over 20+ years. It gives me great honor and respect to partner with Gary Loomis and his USA rod blank company, North Fork Composites. Our team has been blessed with this opportunity and collectively both Batson Enterprises and North Fork Composites look to grow this industry/craft/art." says Bill Batson, CEO of Batson Enterprises "We are very excited to not only add a USA made blank to our lineup but help our current distribution avenues with a RainShadow USA made product as well. We look forward to this exclusive partnership and look to evolve the industry." Bill Batson adds. 

Gary Loomis the founder of "GLoomis" has been involved with graphite composites for fishing rods from the beginning. Some say that he is the "Grandfather" of composites for fishing rods. After selling the company to Shimano in 1995 Gary Loomis focused all energy entirely on fish conservation (Fishfirst.org, JoinCCA.org.) In 2010 Gary Loomis makes a comeback! He has armed his new company, North Fork Composites, with "Generation2" materials and technology built entirely in the USA. North Fork Composites distributes its label to OEM/Private labels and to the custom rod builder market, as well as managing its complete line of finished rod products with Edge Rods.

"After nearly five years of research and development I am proud to introduce my next generation of American made line of blanks. Our agreement with Batson Enterprises allows us the opportunity to focus on our core; "Generation2" materials and technologies, manufacturing, and design while leveraging the strength of Batson's distribution. I couldn't be more excited to bring these new products to the US and the World driving the American manufacturing back home." - Gary Loomis, Owner, Designer, Founder

"North Fork Composites engineers and staff are thrilled to be able to offer handcrafted blanks, handles, and reel seats built with over 80 years of composites experience through wider distribution. Quality and performance that the industry has grown to appreciate and love, re-envisioned with the best technology and materials available today." - Aleks Maslov, CEO, North Fork Composites

The distribution agreement between Batson Enterprises and North Fork Composites takes effect on December 1st, 2014 and will be fulfilled, January 1, 2015.
