I just started building rods 2 yrs ago
I have only built about 9 rods since 3 of which Broke upon 1st use...live and learn.

This last rod is a St croix SCV blank 6-12lb 5S70MF-B
I broke the 1st attempt a year ago..which St Croix promply replaced
this 2nd attmept - I think I have it down now.

Split grip with EVA and Burl cork mix.Pac Bay Alumin. Seat.
I made a wood mohagany butt end theat I have to add tonight..

I build em just for me - and beat the heck out of them in the salt for Striped Bass, blues , Weaks , and Fluke.

Thanks for all the ideas on building all of the homemade wrappers , jigs , stands and Lathe.

there's nothing like catchinng fish on a stick you made yourself.
