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.

I wanted to recommend Hydra NG rod blanks to all rod builders on this site. I have personally built several rods using these NG blanks. I am blown away by the sensitivity and action that each of the rods possess. I built an SJ 873 that I use for keitech swimbaits and ripping traps from grass. I found this blank to be perfect for ripping lipless cranks from vegetation due to the more moderate-fast taper. These blanks have a very crisp feel to them that I do not feel from rival companies like MHX, NFC or Rainshadow.
Overall great blanks!

did you get any of the blank weights prior to building?
For the record, Alex is a stand up guy and i hope to play with some of the NG blanks this year
