Never lose your rod again!

The Yakrods ‘Black Line’ is an industry first with a retention system specifically designed for the kayakers. As kayak anglers ourselves, we’ve felt the heartache of watching our favorite rod slide overboard into the abyss. Quality fishing gear is an investment and we want to help you protect it.

To protect your investment, every rod comes standard with our custom retention system. Included in this is our 3.5 ft. Quiet Tether and NTA endcap to ensure your rod never leaves your side.


Built on a high modulus premium graphite blank, these rods are lightweight, strong, and extremely sensitive. They deliver just the right parabolic bend to keep your tournament-winning monster pegged at the side of your yak. We paired that with the award-winning Microwave Air guides for a truly powerful combo.


We understand that space on a kayak is a premium. That’s why we’ve tuned our rods to offer a shortened handle without sacrificing balance. Our unique retention system doubles as a counter-balance giving you all-day comfort without fatigue. We coupled that with soft-touch technology for a downright luxurious experience.
