Why Dixie?

Xtreme Rods is now Dixie Rods!

Why the Name Change?

It's simple. The more I thought about it, the more I realized "Xtreme" just didn't fit. I was born and bred in the South and I'm proud of my "southern heritage". I wanted to reflect that in the name of my custom rod business - hence: "Dixie Rod and Reel" was born.

Are You Racist?!

Far from it! I love and respect people of all color and nationalities. Some of my closest friends are people of color. "Dixie" has nothing to do with racism but it is a historical nickname for the Southern United States.

Some may object of my use of the second national flag of the Confederate States of America, better known as the "Confederate Battle Flag" or the "Southern Cross". Having ancestors that fought for the South in the Civil War, I chose to honor them as well as all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.  You can get the facts and read the true meaning of the Confederate Battle Flag here.
