If you've been follwoing along on The Fiberglass Manifesto or our Facebook Page you've no doubt seen some of the incredible builds our custom rod builders have put together.

We have one more build to come from Callum Ross at Indi River Rods in Australia

Shane Gray from Gray Wolf products and services has also been giving our Epic blanks the treatment - delicious!

 

If you haven't seen them, you're missing out on something pretty spectacular, take a look.
