Coho Spinning Rod
« on: June 27, 2012, 09:18:25 AM »

New build - this one is for tossing spoons and spinners to Coho.
Blank: Mudhole MHX 8'6" 3/16-1/2 oz
Reel Seat: AmTak Aero Comfort
Guides: 4mm micro guides used with 27x guide placement method
Super light and sensitive. The split grip moves the balance point in front of the reel, making it more comfortable for tip down operation.

If you want a custom rod built I have seen local tackle shops do it for parts cost +$100. This is significantly higher than most factory rods built in China. I don't know what other rod builders charge (i.e. Andy Sneddon in Victoria, Mark Light in Chilliwack).
For that price likely you will get a bare bones build with minimal customization (i.e. thread and cork work), but you will get to choose components to build the rod that suits you best. Your custom rod builder will help you with decisions like "do I need the most expensive SiC guides for my application" (hint: the answer is almost always no).

I built this particular rod based on my requirement which was to fish for Coho in soft water or for Pinks.  I will not use it heavy water (i.e. mid-upper Vedder). A Spring or large Chum would need to be snapped off.

If your requirements matched mine then this one might be suitable - and I would be willing to sell it as I'm always looking for an excuse to build another one  ;D.

If you are interested I would be willing to sell it for parts cost + $50. Roughly $225.
Email me if this fits.

Very nice work. How long did it take you to build it?

I think it would be very cool to build my own rod.
