Your Fishing Rod is Your Best Friend

custom fishing reelsThe average fisherman looks at a fishing rod as a simple tool, a means to an end. But ask any angler who has put years into the sport and that person will tell you that the right fishing rod means so much more. The enjoyment that comes from casting perfect lines and a comfortable reel can make that simple piece of equipment seem much more like a trusted friend.


Plenty of fishermen take to the water only a few times every year, and most fail to notice the subtleties that make a quality custom fishing rod so valuable. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, there can be no doubt that the custom rod is yours. Rods purchased off-the-shelf from sporting goods stores don’t inspire the same feelings of ownership. It’s hard to build a relationship with something so mass-produced. Why invest lots of time building a custom rod? Let us build a custom rod that’s uniquely yours in a way no other fishing pole can be.


There are plenty of practical ways that purchasing a custom rod will help your fishing ability as well. Custom-built rods tend to perform better than mass-produced rods in a number of ways. Personalized fishing rods can be built to all sorts of specifications regarding rod length, guides, reel seat, handle and more. Each of these modifications can greatly affect how the rod casts and reels, giving a builder ultimate control over the kind of fishing rod they’ll be using. In addition, custom fishing rods can have unique designs to make he rod truly yours.


Many companies that mass-produce fishing rods do not take the time to test the blanks and guides for the fishing line. Neglecting to test and tune these items can actually cause inconsistencies in performance, especially while casting. Custom-built rods use higher quality materials that provide the durability, power and sensitivity needed to catch fish.


A lot of angling hobbyists assume that these custom fishing rods are way out of their price range, but in many cases a custom rod is not too much more expensive than the mass-produced variety. Why skimp on the most important tool used in catching fish? Don’t buy mass a produced fishing rod – get something you can trust like a friend; a sensitive, durable and powerful custom fishing rod.
