Although we offer a comprehensive Custom Fishing Rod Building Service, for some anglers, building a fishing rod is a hobby – For others it’s a deeply rewarding project.
See here for our Custom Fishing Rod Building Classes.
As a result, if you opt to undertake the building task, or add your own personal touch with a different reel seat, grip, guides and thread colours we will assist in the Custom Fishing Rod Building process, making the blank your canvas.
In all reality, you can probably buy a quality rod for close to the end price of a custom creation – possibly tens of dollars cheaper depending on the Custom Fishing Rod Building Supplies selected.
The significant advantage of building your own rod, is that YOU cherry pick the Custom Fishing Rod Building Supplies and components, therefore controlling price, and the aesthetics of something that you can be very proud of.
As you gain more experience you will discover that you can in turn, tune the rod blank to get the best performance by simple processes such as changing guide spacing, their sizes and / or building “off- spline”.
For those ready to build their own rod, our guide spacing measurement chart is a fantastic resource.
Using the guide spacing we will provide, ensures that your rod performs just like one of the factory rods that are on our store floor.
If you feel that you are ambitious to try rod building, and or have been doing it for years, we will have the Custom Fishing Rod Building Supplies and tools required to make this potentially challenging experience a little easier.
