TinBoats member onthewater102 made me a custom rod to my specs and it is awesome. The fit and finish was perfect. Reach out to him if you have any questions or want advice.

Used to build rods. Pretty easy to do really. Just takes some time. I bought a turning motor eventually so I didn't have to sit for hours and turn by hand. I recommend buying one. I also made a simple rod building desk out of scrap lumber. One thing is for sure..... you don't save money doing it yourself, but you get what you want. I used to buy my supplies from Cabelas Tackle Craft magazine and Mudhole.
