Anyone build there own rods??
« on: Jan 03, 2004, 12:58 PM »
I'm looking at getting into building some of my own rods.  Anyone else do this?? Does anyone have a good source of quality blanks???  I've heard that Thorne Bros. use a lot of st. Croix blanks.  Any other maufacturers make good blanks for a reasonable price??  Thanks

I have built several rods for ice fishing with the blanks from Peterson-Outdoors.com, they have a good selection. The 24 inch tubular graphite is my favorite for jigging and I have it mounted in a hand carved apple wood handle with Fuji guides.
