Great aid in rod building

Read this manual first! If you are building your first rod this is an invaluable resource. If not, still read it and benefit from professional experience and well-written instructions with excellent photos.

Outstanding Customer Service

I ordered the 590C blank and the next day I noticed that they reintroduced the ready to wrap kit. An email later I had the build kit parts and pieces at the price as if I had just purchased the ready to wrap kit. I am in the midst of the build now, and it's going swimmingly. All of the components are spot on and are quality products as well as aesthetically pleasing. Will report back after completion and am looking forward to fishing this rod! Jimmy
