To stay on the topic, Both Steve and Kevin are friends and they can and will do a great job for you. Also on here is Goduster,Ron. Another great guy. I might have skipped a few others but please forgive me. All of these guys are good people to work with. As a rod building ferternity, we all work together and help each other.
