Rod build ideas
« on: December 30, 2020, 10:04:18 PM »

Iíve never had a custom rod built but will be in the near future. Anyone have any tips or ideas? Iím not looking for something flashy with bright colours just a classic look.
Also rod builder recommendations would be a help too.

Dave built a Sage 2106lb blank up for me a couple years ago that is gorgeous.

I had a pretty clear idea in my head of what I wanted it to look like. Dave took that and made a couple suggestions that worked beautifully with what I was thinking. When I picked it up I was beyond happy, it couldnít have turned out nicer.
