Only the finest corrosion resistant guides are used on our
rods. You also get to custom choose the type of guides you want on you
rods. We offer turbo style guides on our stand up light weight rods
and several different types of roller guides on our offshore trolling
|These type guides offer better heat-dissipation
and anti–corrosion qualities that will stand up to years of
exposure to sun and salt water environments. We perform static
stress tests on each rod to determine optimal guide placement
|which you will never get in an “off
the shelf” mass produced rod. All
trolling and blue water rods come standard with triple wrapped
guides or extra strength when fighting that trophy fish. We also
offer Winthrop Tool Roller Guides.
Handles/Rod Butts: Quality counts
here. Your choice of Aftco and Pacific Bay Unibutts will give your
years of service. Reel seats on our stand up rods are custom graphite
heavy duty reel seats in your choice of colors.
The Grips: All grips are custom
shaped of EVA foam or Colored Hypalon. Each grip is custom sized and
cut to the proper length and fitted to the blank using only the best
waterproof epoxy rod builder’s glue that money can buy.
The Finish: Three to five coats of
Aftcote Coat rod epoxy finish are hand applied to the rod wraps while
each rod is rotating on a drying rack. This process takes up to three
days to complete in order to acquire an imperfection free finish on
the rod. Special UV protectants in the finish prevent “yellowing” of
the finish and will keep your custom rod looking new for years of
service and shine.
Thread Colors: Nylon wrapping
thread by Gudebrod are used in wrapping our rods in your choice of
over 100 color combinations. Metallic and holographic threads are also
optional to add that extra “sparkle “to your custom rod. Beautiful
custom “diamond wraps “are standard on all our custom rods in colors
that match the guide wraps.
Customization: Each rod can be
tailored to your specifications and can be personalized with your name
and / or boat name and any other special graphics that you desire to
make your rods truly your own. Nothing looks better or is more
functional that a set of custom made rods displayed in the cockpit of
your sport-fishing boat!! Your fishing buddies will be green with envy
when they see your custom made rods.
REMEMBER: We will work with you to
make sure that you are totally satisfied with your choice to purchase
one or more of our high quality custom rods that we offer. Each blank
is warranted for the life of the rod, and comes with our
satisfaction/money back guarantee. Ask about special discounts for
multiple rod sets purchased together.
