Ok I?ve been thinking about building a rod vs. buying a new rod. And I cannot make up my mind. The main issue is there is no place within about 3 hours of me that I know of that sells rod building supplies. I do need to look in Gander Mountain. I would prefer to be able to see what I am buying for the first build, just haven't had the time to make the trip.
Anyone have any suggestions?
The rod I want to build will be to go with the islander 3.4lx gold, which I won here on faol. I would prefer a black rod with gold guides/reel seat. Or maybe black guides reel seat with gold wraps. I'm still on the fence. There are just too many choices out there
