Custom Rod Building:
Our Custom Rod Building department is a very significant component of our business, due mainly to the fact that we pride ourselves in the developments and innovations which have brought a new dimension to rod building, particularly in the rock and surf sector. It is after all, the birthplace of the world-famous Assassin rod series, which has revolutionized surf casting rods.
We run regular clinics ranging from Rock and Surf Development Clinics to Big Game, Drop Shot, Fishing Ski, Bass, as well as new product launches and customer presentations of recent fishing trips. Call 031-2632372 to reserve your place at the next clinic that may be of interest to you.
Rod repairs range from replacing guides, whipping and high-building, to complete strips right down to the blank and complete rebuilds. We make a "tired old rod" brand new!
We specialize in repairs and services to the following brands: Shimano, Daiwa, Penn, K.P., Mitchell, Abu Garcia. We carry a significant complement of spares. It is a known fact that often a component or spare that cannot be obtained anywhere else, is quite often found at Basil Manning.
Due to the high quality and diversity of our bait, companies, groups, clubs and individuals, take advantage of our expertise in advising on what they will need and how much of it for wherever they are going. This we will pack into individual daily packages or group packages according to their needs. We regularly fly bait to customers in places like Namibia, Gauteng, Cape Town, Eastern Cape, etcetera.
Guiding Services can easily be arranged for customers who have a requirement anywhere in South Africa, as well as Namibia and Mozambique.
