I agree with chormer. I've had the great fortune to have the advice of a rod building great - "Smitty" of the Rod Builders Workshop (a Sponsor). He runs a well-stocked shop in Kingston, MA near Cape Cod just off the highway.

Not only has he built countless rods, but his wild "tales of adventure" are beyond fiction and knowing him they are all true. Stripers over 50 pounds, deer with unimaginable antlers, and a certain knack for "fair game"

I highly recommend getting to know an individual, not a big catalog company if you want to build rods.
