Las Vegas, NV. - In a surprise move Ken Whiting, dubbed “THE WIZARD OF RODS” by Field & Stream writer John Merwin, has resigned as President of Airrus Rods, the company he founded in 2002, effective immediately. Ken did not cite any reasons for his resignation, but did say that there would be additional press releases at a later date that would serve to explain the reasons for his surprise move and that all of the reasons were extremely positive and that the split was totally amiable. 


During his tenure, Airrus has garnered numerous industry and media awards including four ICAST “Best of Show” awards in the rod category, with three of them being back to back. Ken’s outstanding advances in innovation and technology have taken Airrus from an unknown industry start up in 2002 to that of a recognized industry leader in both areas in the short span of five years.

In a brief statement Ken said, “The hardest part of making the decision to leave Airrus were the customers. There are so many that have been extremely loyal and supportive of Airrus and are really the ones that can be credited with much of the success that Airrus has enjoyed. To each and every one of you that I have come to know, many of whom have become very close friends, this not the end, it is just the beginning. Trust me on that one”.
