Jalaba continued: “Finding the right rod to fit my style, size and strengths, relative to my techniques, is something I have struggled with. Team RainShadow has given me an incredible opportunity to change the way I fish by designing a product that is customized to all these attributes. Through collaboration, we’ve created perfect rods that will maximize my performance.
