Why Build Beyond the Limits of Factory Rods?

If you’re wondering, why in the world would I build a custom fishing rod?

Well, shopping through seas of the same factory rods only leads to settling for what seems good enough. But in custom rod building, you have all the options and control to build past the limitations of factory rods and assemble an optimized rod engineered for your fishing.

Rod Building results in many performance benefits, such as equipping you with a stronger, more sensitive rod at a fraction of the weight. Plus with color choices and custom options, you not only improve the rod’s performance, but you build it with pride.

4 Reasons Rod Building is Right for You

Just imagine the pride of catching fish on a rod you built, it’s a feeling no fisherman will ever forget to say the least. By marrying your desired performance specs and style to actual components, it’s easy… you dream it, you find it, and you build it!

1. Look at All the Options

Rod builders and avid anglers alike demand a large inventory of components at their disposal to assemble the custom rod that works best in their fishing application.

Ranging from popular rod blanks, guides, grips, and reel seats, to all the latest and greatest choices in color, style, and material, it takes a serious number of options to support the rod requirements of anglers fishing across the globe.

The available options truly set rod building apart because you never have to settle on a rod and rather, you can always build the exact fishing equipment you want and need.

2. Feel Fine-Tuned Performance

Rod building gives you a new perspective of fishing because you’re thinking beyond rod specs and into specific techniques, applications, and species you’re targeting.

There is no better way to dial-in the performance than building a fishing rod to the specifications necessary for your application or fishery. When you know your waters, target fish, and technique, fine tuning your custom rod’s performance is the last step to maximize strikes and land more fish.

Building a rod with comfort, control, sensitivity, and weight in mind, is the easiest way to guarantee the ultimate performance on the water.

3. Enjoy Personalizing the Rod

The custom in rod building comes from the ability to not only customize the performance for application specific fishing, but also to personalize the rod’s finished appearance and feel. If you’re looking for a specific grip, a certain decal, or a way to maximize your comfort on the water, rod building gives you the power to personalize your fishing rod to do just that.

So for this point, whether you want to build a basic rod for comfort or let your imagination run wild with components and colors, the reason for custom rod building is to forget factory limitations and instead, assemble your dream fishing rod.
