Founded in 1997, BlackFin Rods has been producing the highest quality, American-made rods in the sportfishing industry for more than two decades.
Elvisridge Capital invested in Blackfin Rods in 2018 and provided capital to expand production and to support additional working capital needs.
We enhanced manufacturing techniques to increase capacity, and we added important manufacturing and quality control processes — all the while retaining the hand-crafted point of difference the company has always been known for. Today, no competitor offers a more durable or better designed rod than BlackFin.
The result? …a fast growing company gaining not only revenue, but also reputation.

Headquartered in Erlanger, KY, BBS Tech, LLC (BBS) was founded in 1994 to manufacture Spiderwire, the first significant high-performance braided fishing line brand. Since then, BBS has evolved into the most knowledgeable manufacturer of braided fishing lines worldwide. Over its history, the company has produced products for almost every major international brand and is now the last remaining US-owned and based manufacturer of high-performance lines valued by the serious angler.
Using its 26 years of experience and knowledge, BBS developed FINS, its own brand of ultra-high-weight-molecular polyethylene high-performance braided fishing line. FINS provides a full range of products in various colors and tensile strengths that offer superior performance in any situational fishing experience.
By partnering with Elvisridge Capital, BBS has the financial backing to expand capacity and invest in marketing to increase the growth of its FINS branded products.
