While its not difficult to build a rod, it sure can be confusing trying to pick out the parts. There are all kinds of components available, and all kinds of prices, but it can be like a chinese puzzle trying to decide what to use. Even trying to pick out a rod kit can be a pain. I have great respect for the people who start rod building businesses. They must have a Philadelphia lawyer somewhere!
Anyways, here is what I have done to try to smooth the process....Our rod kits come with a set of instructions from my own experiences (lots of trials and errors!)..and I give online help by EMail. I dont presume to be an expert,but I have built enough rods to at least get you started on what can be a fun journey.....Also for those of you who already have a blank and are wondering- What Now? I have some component sets to cover a variety of applications......If you are thinking about redoing a favorite rod I list some appropriate guide sets and can send along some notes on how to go about it.
Of course I sell the individual components (lots of them!) for those of you who already know what you are doing.
