I got contacted by a customer that I have built rods for in the past about building a rod for his mother for Mothers Day. I always try to take care of my customers no matter how much work it means for me so I took on the job of getting this rod done for Mothers day. Problem was he just contacted me about a week ago and he needed it in his hands by Mothers Day :wallbash:
So about 7days from ordering the parts to shipping. Somehow I managed to pull it off with a little help from my buddy Ron (Goduster) in getting some parts to me lightning fast :thumbsup: (Thanks Ron).
