Ocean Springs, Miss. – Almost every professional angler has design adaptations and enhancements they would like to make to the tools of their trade, and Scott Canterbury is no exception. When we approached the 2019 Bassmaster Angler of the Year and Halo Fishing Rods Pro to have him consult on adding tournament-proven design enhancements to our rods, no question, he was immediately all-in.
Working closely with Scott, the Halo Fishing Rods design team identified a number of important advancements in product design. From his years of experience and personal recommendations, we saw an opportunity to develop a completely new series of rods that could build upon Scott’s success, performance and consistency. From those initial design ideas, the team developed seven models of Scott Canterbury Signature Series rods. These seven new Scott Canterbury rod models were designed to cover every fishing situation and the extreme conditions that a professional angler faces throughout their extensive tournament seasons.
“I’ve been using Halo Fishing Rods for the best part of my tournament career, and the company already makes some of my favorite tournament-proven rods. When they gave me the challenge of adding my recommendations and design enhancements for tournament situations, I was excited to get involved,” said 2019 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Scott Canterbury. “Each of these rods have my 20-plus years of tournament experience in them. They are priced to be affordable for any angler and designed to be tournament tough. I’m very proud of the work of our team to create some truly innovative fishing rods.”
The Scott Canterbury Signature Series rods are built with high-end Japanese Nano-fiber Graphite for unmatched sensitivity and durability. The blank design is centered around a reduced handle length for increased casting accuracy as well as improved butt-end clearance to eliminate interference with bulky clothing. The blank is matched with stainless steel guide frames with zirconia inserts for smooth casting and durability. We also added a new, proprietary reel seat to improve hand-to-blank touch sensitivity and a super-comfortable grip to reduce casting fatigue for those long days on the water. The Scott Canterbury series features great rod designs developed by a true champion.
