I used to make custom rods for myself and some for sale (spinning, casting and fly rods),But due to high shipping cost, difficult to ship overseas. I make only high quality rods. Most rod guides I use are from Fuji Titanium (Gold Cermet and Titanium concept guides) I also make Leather fly reel case. 100% handstitich sometimes.. I import components from Japan and USA mostly.
Why a custom Rod? Every rod build is not only custom tailored to your needs using the finest material
available, but unique in design. You can select your custom rod yourselves buying from me or supplied by you. The true beauty of custom rod differs from the mass production rods. Mass production rods used cheap material for larger profits and simple design.
Fuji designed one of the strongest, most functional, and elegant guide sets ever made. They utilize, Titanium Torzite recently, Gold Cermet (gold with cermic material discont. now)ring guides that feature the durability of metal combined with the hardness of a Ceramic. Add Fuji's diamond polishing and the Gold Cermet Ring boast a finish that's twice as smooth as their SiC ring. Combine that with the durablity and light weight of Titanium Frames and you get one of the strongest, most functional, and elegant line guides ever made. That's why they're on my rod
I also make custom fly reel case, other leather products and knife lanyards and lanyards for knife, keys and other outdoor stuffs.
