You’ll Feel More Bites with Halo’s New Super-Sensitive, Upscaled KS II Elite Series Fishing Rods

OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (July 9, 2020) Halo Fishing has stepped up its efforts to provide tour grade fishing rods at an affordable price with the new KS II Elite Series.


Halo’s new leadership is strongly committed to integrity to their customers and products and driven by a passion for building high quality rods at affordable prices. The KS II Elite exemplifies the attention to detail and quality Halo demands from every product they manufacture. Demonstrated in the KS II Elite rods build quality which is manufactured with premium components on a super light, ultra-sensitive Nano-fiber carbon blank.


The KS II Elite Series consists of six casting and one spinning model all of which were designed with input from Halo’s pro fishing team. Retailing at $169.99, the series is built with premium Fuji guides featuring zirconia inserts that heighten rod sensitivity even more. The KS II Elite’s rock solid, proprietary reel handle is made of AAA cork with green Eva Foam highlights for comfort and sensitivity. An exposed, “two-finger” section in the reel seat provides anglers a direct feel to the blank for those delicate bites.

“Nano-fiber carbon not only is stronger and more sensitive than graphite but it’s more durable as well,” says Halo Brand Manager Walt Roberts.

The spinning reel seat also features a double-nut attachment to keep the reel secured to the rod. Both casting and spinning rods have a hook hanger integrated into the blank.

“Halo is working closely with our pro staff team to get our input on rod lengths, features and actions,” says Scott Canterbury, the 2019 Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year. “We’ve made huge strides in improving the overall quality of the rods and dialed in the actions to meet the needs of serious anglers.”

In addition to focusing on quality products, the new Halo leadership has doubled down on its commitment to anglers and customer service. The KS II Elite rods are backed by a five-year warranty.

“We know our customers work hard all week so they can fish harder on weekends,” says Roberts. “The new management team is not only passionate about providing customers a quality product for their hard-earned dollars, but we’re equally committed to a vastly improved customer service program for anglers and our dealer network.”

Halo is a subsidiary of the American Baitworks Co.  American Baitworks has made significant strides to overhaul the rod company since moving the business from Florida to Mississippi in 2019.
