Why build?

Custom rod building...practical? I recently spoke with a shop owner and custom rod builder who explained that his shop offers free custom rod building lessons for the cost of the components, of course. Outside of the personal pride and self satisfaction one gains from building their own rod please explain what else can be gained from the experience. Obviously I have no background in this, however it appears that one would be hard pressed to improve upon today's premium rods considering the all of the R&D and experience that's dedicated to them. I agree that there's an amount of satisfaction attached to tying one's own flies or reloading your hunting ammunition. I just can't see how rod building is an advantage. I would never attempt to build my own hunting rifle. Please enlighten...thanks.
