Custom rod by R.W. Rod on ebay

Post by babfish » Tue Oct 02, 2007 12:59 am

There is a custom rod builder on ebay from Minnesota. The name is R.W. Rod and he builds on St. Croix Blanks. Just wondering if anyone has purchased from him and how his craftsmanship was. Thanks

I purchased a 6'8" MXF LE, (brown blank) from him this summer. No foregrip, split handle, Fuji alconite guides. Excellent work, fast shipper, well packaged, good communication. Very pleased with the transaction. Dan

He's been selling them for a few years now. Good rods for the money. 8-)

Got an eBay name for the orginal guy? Would love to smoke his stuff over.

Heard a lot about the G-blanks guys too, what blanks are they using now?

Love my Gblanks.... use a Fuego on it. Very light. I'll get another.
