A few of my early builds.I have since upgraded the guides and tweaked the action.I just can't see paying close to a hundo for a"custom"rod that only cost 5.00 for the blank.Yeah,some of the cost is in the Recoil guides,which are not really necessary.Flexilite guides are just as good,but cost a lot less.So are Minima4 guides.

Sorry, I have a lot of favorites, a picture of some. I have a couple St. Croix rods but I don't use them much. I prefer the ones I built. I suggest, you should try a home/self built rod. Just something about it? I'm not really serious about pan fishing so I'll get a little crazy with some of the handles i have horns, duck calls, jaw bone, Harley grips, cork and copper, hand wound wire, etc. But you can build a rod how you want from blanks, guides, colors, length and handles. I haven't got real serious yet. I'm trying to teach my son. so Reinke Bros has everything I need. But I have seen some really nice blanks and cork on the web.
