Don't forget to get a tip top for the rod because they are not included in the "kit". Glue to attach to grip and reel seat are not included, not is ferrule cement to attach the ti top. Guide wrapping thread may not be included and I'm pretty sure that rod finish is not included in the "kit".

In other words, make sure you have all the components needed to build the rod: blank, cork or grip, guides, stipper guides, tip top, thread, rod finish, reel seat, winding check, thermoplastic ferrule cement to attach the tip top, and glue to bond the grip and reel seat to the rod. If you don't have all these items, you will not be able to build the rod.
