Rhino Rods with GlowTip

Indestructible and beam with pride

New for 2008, all Rhino rods feature the brand’s distinguishable, exclusive GlowTip design for a glow-in-the-dark performance during low light conditions and night fishing. GlowTip also adds to Rhino’s stylish good looks featuring black blanks and handles, with red and silver accents.

 

Zebco claims no other rod on the market is tougher than Rhino. None. Zero. Zilch.  That’s because they are built using the world’s most durable rod construction method. A strong E-Glass outer shell is combined with a tough, yet sensitive graphite inner core to harness the best properties of both materials to result in truly indestructible rods.

 

To prove that, a series of tests was conducted in which all kinds of rods were fired from a launcher at speeds of over 200 mph against a plywood wall. Rhino rods literally bounced off on impact while competitors’ rods shattered or splintered. It left no doubt that Rhino rods are the toughest of all.

           

A great rod for hyperactive youngsters Rhino Indestructible GlowTip rods are legendary for their durability, and for the exclusive glow-in-the-dark tip that makes them ideal for low-light fishing. Whether you're fishing for light-line panfish, or going after monster cats with 80# braided line, a Rhino GlowTip™ rod is the perfect choice.

 

Built with the toughest rod construction in the world, Rhino GlowTip rods feature two high-strength materials: E-Glass surrounding a Graphite core. This construction method makes them virtually indestructible, while at the same time providing the sensitivity you need to detect even the slightest strike. No other rod design provides the angler with this level of confidence

           

With more than 20 models to choose from, casting and spinning, Rhino has the right action for every kind of fishing from ice to downriggers. The smallest Rhino is a 4'6" ultralight version, while largest is an 8'6" downrigger model. All are indestructible, and all have the GlowTip.
