Custom Rod Pricing

Custom Rod building is just that, CUSTOM. For that reason, we do not have set pricing. Each customer has different wants and needs. Therefore we offer free, no obligation consultations and quotes. Some anglers want a plain rod to be as light and sensitive as possible. Other's like bling, while other's want just a slight personal touch.

For this reason, it would not be fair to charge a set price.

Our rods include your choice of grip cork,EVA, carbon fiber, winn, paracord or flocked shrink wrap (custom made grips are extra) choice of reel seat, two colors of thread with accents around  the split grip ( if your rod has one), hook keeper and up to the first guide, your name or other inscription on the rod.

All rods are static load tested and our guide spacing is done to match the reel to your rod to ensure you get the most distance and performance when casting. This also prevents the line from touching or going under the blank while loaded.
