  • North Fork Composites is Gary Loomis' next generation of rod products. Quality and craftsmanship is what Gary Loomis is known for. Future thinking is the building block of North Fork Composites (NFC), making them one of the leading innovators of Made in the USA fi shing rod products. Ranging from high modulus (HM), intermediate modulus (IM), standard modulus (SM) rod blanks, to graphite reel seats, and carbon handles, NFC looks to change the industry one item at a time.

    Founded to deliver carbon fi ber tubing for the sporting goods industry (Fishing Rods, Golf Shafts, Arrows, Oar Shafts), NFC continues to be a pioneer in technology and manufacturing techniques. NFC brings nearly 80 years of composite manufacturing experience. We believe that impossible is possible and bring that vision to life through our staff and our products.

    The balance of performance, durability, and weight are crucial when designing rod blanks. These deciding factors of success has enabled NFC to become a trusted partner in composites manufacturing. As a result, our products transcend multiple industries and are used by large companies like Boeing, Google, and our Military. We are proud that thousands of customers put their trust in our products every day and contribute with their passion!

  • Technology Overview Throughout the last forty years, NFC has subscribed to one simple formula: Weight is a deterrent to performance. From the beginning, Gary Loomis and NFC incorporated the GENERATION 2 (GEN2) formula of materials and manufacturing technology to make blanks and rods. Our GEN2 machinery is designed and manufactured by Gary Loomis, which allows NFC to roll parts at hundreds of PSI above industry standard! Combined with the latest GEN2 graphite technology, this results in parts that are sought after by the fi nest fi shermen, the tech sector, and our military around the world.

    For many years rod performance was solely focused on modulus, and Gary Loomis is partially to blame. In his never-ending quest for the next development in composites, he would introduce previous models in higher modulus material. Gary Loomis competition would try to replicate Garys products with their own version of high modulus. However, modulus rating is only part of the story! Resin content, type of resin systems used, types or carbon fi ber effect the fl ex, weight, and performance of a rod blank. NFC selects the best material for the application scenario and is proud to offer our GEN2 High Modulus, Intermediate Modulus, and Standard Modulus rod blanks.

    Our manufacturing philosophy centers around: GEN2 Materials, GEN2 Machinery, GEN2 Manufacturing, and GEN2 Design. All are dependent on one another and support the goal of making a performance fi shing rod blank. We take pride in handcrafting all of our blanks in Woodland, Washington USA by artisans that have over 80 years combined in manufacturing experience.

    history

    North Fork Composites and Batson Enterprises Continue the LegacyThe partnership between the Batson Family/Team and the Loomis Family/Team is important to the industry in so many ways. Both families/Teams have had an equally game changing industry impact. Long lasting family ties have enabled both companies to excel in each perspective market. North Fork Composites and Batson Enterprises, with their vast knowledge of the industry, seeks to enhance and expand the industry, craft and art of rod building.One thing remains for both companies, they share the same core values on how business should be conducted with INTEGRITY, HONESTY and the WIN VS WIN mentality. The Batson Family/Team is excited about the partnership with North Fork Composites by Gary Loomis to re-shore products made in the USA. The partnership is a strategic win for both companies. The availability of products and the management of inventories will ensure the end user is receiving product in a timely manner a defi nite plus for all rod builders. From the custom rod builder to the OEM, North Fork Composites and Batson Enterprises will bring the best product offerings Made in the USA to the industry. This partnership was a culmination of many years of friendship between Gary Loomis and Bob Batson (1947-2003). The relationship started in the mid 90s when Bob Batson and Gary Loomis partnered on projects for both of their previous endeavors. Bob and Gary had such a great rapport. Gary would send Bob rods to test and vice versa with components. Still to date, Batson Enterprises has prototype or experimental rods in the collection from Gary Loomis. Gary and Bob not only had a professional relationship, but personal one as well. Their tremendous knowledge base about the industry evolved into the greatest respect for each other. This is why, together, both North Fork Composites and Batson Enterprises have
