Spinning and Casting Rod Series

Here at Douglas Outdoors, we knew we would have to develop the best Spinning and Casting Rods to make our mark in a crowded marketplace, so we went to work. Our rod design team, led by Pro Angler Fred Contaoi, built a crisp, dialed-in line of rods.

The Douglas XMatrix Spinning and Casting Rod Series is a truly premium rod series. Highlighted by exquisite actions, designed to cover an impressive range of specific techniques and applications (19 Spinning and +30 Casting). XMatrix Rods feature high-end components top to bottom, inside and out. Made from a proprietary carbon matrix composition, the DXS and DXC Rods feature Fuji Reel Seats, Fuji alconite guides, high-density EVA grips, and graphite inserts. XMatrix Rods feature ground breaking strength-to-weight ratios that most fishing rods on the market can’t match. Experience the hyper sensitivity, the light weight, the dialed-in actions and the ergonomic comfort of these rods for yourself. You will be impressed.

XMatrix Series
By far, the best rods I own. The sensitivity and balance are unmatched. The only reason I give the rod 4 stars is that I wish they made more choices with a cork handle. When the material they use on these rods gets wet, it's slippery. If you are thinking about stepping up your game, these rods are worth the money.

DXC 745F

XMatrix Series
Insanely light and still strong. Douglas rods have made me a believer. Best rods I’ve ever thrown!

DXS 6103XF

XMatrix Series
Amazing light weight rod for ned rigs. This rod is super sensitive. I am glad I went extra fast tip for ned rig applications. Makes a world of difference.

DXC 6103XF

XMatrix Series
Fantastic rods. They are extremely light and sensitive. Further, I had a tip break off mine and they took care of it no charge. I contacted a representative and they sent me a new rod free of charge. They really do care about their customers.

XMatrix Series
If I could make every spinning rod in my lineup a 744XF, I would. These things are hands down the best spinning rod in their lineup. Dropshots? Amazing. Ned Rigs? Outstanding. Small swimbaits? Perfect. Literally any spinning application, this rod excels.
