I'm set to build an 8-wt. with an IMX blank, complimenting my 9-wt. rod of the same blank type. I love the feeling of fishing a rod that would cost $500+ in the store, but which cost me less than $175 total. This is my fifth "home-built" rod, and now when I go into the LFS and pick up some rod with a price tag that makes my head swim, I just smile to myself and think what I can build it for. Long live the rod builders!
