Destructive blank testing 101

#1 lift heavy object

Jason Champion owner of Thrasher Rods starts out deadlifting 30lbs. If you've never done this with a fishing rod before.... well it's very difficult to do. Jason works hard so Thrasher rods blanks and rod designs are perfect!

#2 bounce heavy object

Mike is bouncing a 5 gallon bucket of water that weighs 45ish pounds and BOUNCING IT!! He's trying to see how bad ass this blank is. 

#3 find breaking point

Cory then steps in with one goal and that's to break this blank! He will lift it as high as he can and bounce over and over until it breaks. The inline scale tells us the amount of force is being played out.
