Pentalux® Rods


Unparalleled Performance


Welcome to Pentalux® Rods - The Original Asymmetrical Five-Strip Bamboo Fly Rod. My name is Rob Smith and bamboo fly rods are my obsession. I am the sole maker and original creator/designer of the Pentalux®. Thank you for your interest in SMITH Pentalux® rods!


There is no other fishing rod in the world like a Pentalux®. An irregular polygon, this original design provides a unique casting experience with a level of tracking and stability found in no other fly rod.

This remarkable design combines the attributes of the quad, pent and hex geometries found in traditional bamboo rods to produce a distinctly smooth and exceptionally accurate fly rod. Please inquire about an opportunity to cast one.
