Somoan, I'm just getting started at this too so I am no expert, only been at it about a month, I do it when time permits. Good question about the wood. Since I have limited tools at the moment I start out with hardwood dowels. It is real easy to work with, shapes really nice, doesn't splinter and has some weight to it. I think they are Poplar, I believe they also sell maple. Flexcoat is available in any rod building supply store or catalog. I just used it cause I have it around because I build rods. Other guys use 30 minute epoxy and various other things to coat with.
