I don't know for sure but I would have to say yes. ODM has been very active in their demo days. ODM has done demo in shops at Sea Bright and Point Pleasant in the last few years. Shimano use to do demos but haven't heard of one in the last few years.

Century ones are most often setup through shops. Although they are sometimes independent, a lot of times a shop will call and ask century people to come down to do one....

There are also a number of shows coming up, such as striper day where the rods will be there

Demo's are important early on to let people hear about and try the rods but as the rod companies grow and are available in shops it becomes less necessary. Once you've got enough rods out there ,you can try peoples rods and get feedback from the guys who own and fish the rods. Point being you woun't see many demo's unless it's a new company.

I talked to the guys at haskels, might do something around there..

 

also, when I drop the  1pc rods off to J+H we might be able to get a date...

I understand that Ron Arra will be doing a rod demonstration in the State of New Hamshire in the new year, Perhaps he could post here on some of the other shows that he might be attending to demonstrate his line of rods with a new manufacture

Ron's an entertaining presenter.  I went to one at the site of the old Augie's,  in Babylon, where we had water handy for test casting.  He puts on a good show.

ODM will definitely be very active 2017 with rod demo's in NJ,NY and New England states. Demo's will start around April.... dates to be determined
