BOB - MASTER ROD BUILDER / CUSTOM SIDE SPECIALIST / R&D LEAD

Robert "Rocket Bob" Croxton has been in the fishing community his entire life.  He is a very accomplished businessman, who has mastered his passions in the fishing industry, automotive industry, and custom rod industry.  Bob has been building custom rods for over 20 years, and started FXtreme Custom Rods so he could give fishermen what they were missing from the standard retail line of rods.  Bob's friends will tell you that when you look up "OCD" in the dictionary, you will find his picture, however, we feel that is a great quality in a Custom Rod Builder.  He is the one who builds every rod and settles for nothing less than the best in quality and craftsmanship.  Bob is an accomplished sponsored bass fisherman.  His list of sponsors include:  NAPA, Lowrance, American Tackle, and Power Poles.  

Knowing that an accomplished fisherman is the one building our rods should help put your mind at ease that he will provide you the best possible product out there.  All of these skills have been poured into our own retail line of rods too, the Xtreme Angler Series. 

 

BRYAN - RETAIL LINE SPECIALIST / SALES DIRECTOR

Bryan McCarthy serves in every role in the company besides actually building the rods.  He is a 19 Year Veteran of the United States Navy, and a soon-to-be Retired Senior Chief, where he has served in a customer service management role in Navy Recruiting for the last 15 years.  He has finished requirements for his Bachelors Degree in Human Resource Management and will receive his degree in May 2017.  He values customer satisfaction above everything else, understanding that outstanding customer service seems to be a thing of the past in the fishing industry.  Bryan has fished and hunted his entire life, from up North to the Middle East, from San Diego to the Bahamas, and Alaska.  Though his military lifestyle has prevented him from fishing bass trails much larger than club level, he has exposed himself to as much information as possible and is the best person to interact directly with our customers.  Bryan's passion for customer service and superior products will be recognized the first time you get to talk to him, and his work ethic is 2nd to none.
