When production rods are not enough, it's time to go custom. Come share your experiences building and/or ordering a custom rod and tell us if you'll ever go back to off the shelf.

Custom Revo Elite Aurora inspired build thread

What’s up Tackle Tour,
My names Cameron. I’ve been lurking around these forums for a while. A few years back I started rod building just for fun. I did a couple of spinning rods, baitcaster sand even vententured into refinishing a bamboo fly rod. When I started I stumbled upon the Abu Garcia Revo Elte Aurora reel and knew I eventually would need to add that to my collections! Lucky for me, I FINALLY found one!!

Started routing around and found the American Tackle Hologram guides and picked up a few. My plans are to run a DF 10, DF 8 or 7, then use single foot 6s as the running guides to the top top.

While I waited on a few back ordered guides, glued up the grips and reel seat.
I ended up going with an ALPS split seat and WINN grips.

Sooo this is where I stand as of right now! I’ll post more pictures as I make progress.
