The present so nice I had to post it twice. My awesome wife gave me an early Christmas present. I am the proud owner of a flex coat OEM rod builder. I'm about to order my first blank( from my research a rain shadow 3 wt should give me the best bang for my buck) but would love some feedback from those who know what I am in for. Would love to do something in Saints black and gold for my dad. Not sure what color blanks come in but for my first I figure price needs to be considered.
