Quality steel. Reliable construction. Precise tolerances. These are the qualities that describe the industry-leading Vermeer Firestick drill rod. The durability and performance of your drill rod is vital to your operation.
Constructed of forged and heat-treated, high-carbon alloy steel, Vermeer Firestick drill rod has earned a reputation in the industry for strength and consistent quality. From the robust threads to double-shouldered design, Firestick drill rod stands up in high-torque applications while maintaining a large inside diameter to help maximize drilling fluid flow.
