Hydra NG Series rod blanks set the foundation for all Brians Bees Cranking or Peir assasin. The Crank"in or Peir Assasin Series incorporates Hydra SFD – Scrimless Fiber Design.


By eliminating the customary fiberglass and/or carbon paper scrim used in most rod blank designs, Hydra rod blanks featuring SFD are void of vibration dampening lower modulus materials. This provides a platform for crisp vibration transmission and increased blank responsiveness. High quality linear carbon fiber cloth that is up to 29% thinner and 9% lighter than  traditional materials is paired with an exact resin matrix mix. This pairing creates a durable composite that after high pressure rolling is 4% tighter than previous designs. Hoop strength is maintained through our proven design specifications and ensures rods won’t fail during an epic fish fight.

Rod blanks built using SFD have higher final average modulus ratings and are some of the lightest, most sensitive, and durable blanks available today.



We proudly use Kigan guides on all our rods. Kigan guides have a less than 1% failure rate – that means no worries on the water when a check is on the line. Kigan’s innovative and patented guide frame design has proven to yield superior results to all other guides we have tested on Brians Bees Rods.

All Brians Bees Rods are hand assembled in the USA. Our experienced rod crafters use epoxies and glues specially formulated for fishing rods. These adhesives remain flexible under stress and provide water tight resistance in demanding marine environments. Guide wraps are coated first with a proprietary pre-finish and then followed by a measured cure final coat finish. This provides long life. We don’t add accelerants, heat lamps, or anything else to build rods faster that would compromise long term longevity of your rod.
