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.

And the woven grip? Did you remove it from a different rod?

I'm 100% sure those parts were available from NFC at one time, but not sure if they still are. I was considering it for one of my custom rods, until I tried out a Wiebe seat on an old G. Loomis rod. I'm funny about reel seats, and it's just not for me. Your results may vary. ;)
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

I asked their customer service and they said they don't sell them

About year ago there were special deal. Buy NFC blank and get grip + offset seat. Got two sets.

Really like the offset seats. Daiwa also use something similar but yet to find a source to purchase them from.
