Manufacturer Focus: Kashima Blanks

Chinese rod blank manufacturer Weihai Hanhigh was founded back in 2002 specializing in rod building and rod components. It wasn’t until 2017 that the sub brand Kashima Blank was launched. Kashima Blank can supply a full range of high-end rod blanks that include blanks for spinning, bass fishing, carp fishing, feeder fishing, fly fishing and jigging to name a few.

The materials used in rod construction are from some of the world’s top suppliers such as Toray and Mitsubishi. With the market becoming more individual and the increased demand for customized and handmade rods, the Kashima project was launched enabling a full supply and design service to its customers which includes blanks, design, rod components, assembly tooling and equipment.

Over the years Weihai Hanhigh has seen many changes within the tackle industry however it has now become easier for it to deal with the global enquiries it is receiving by launching the dedicated brand Kashima. With improved and more modern communication channels such as the Internet, social media and online selling, customers can easily now make contact with manufacturers making the whole process a lot easier.
