Does anyone know a good reasonably priced company to go through for a custom fly rod? I am looking for a six weight.
What are your rods calledI build rods but currently have around a 4 month wait time
For me, I prefer a larger diameter grip over what they sale off the shelf. When they manufacture the grips, they have the small hands of a lady or young man/boy in mind.Just curious why you need a custom rod - especially if you’re looking for one at a good price? What’s a custom 6 wt going to do for you that a Scott Meridian, Loomis NRX or Sage Salt is not going to do?
You can customize your OTS rod to achieve your goal.For me, I prefer a larger diameter grip over what they sale off the shelf. When they manufacture the grips, they have the small hands of a lady or young man/boy in mind.
There are different tapes/wraps that people use to supplement the diameter of handleYou can customize your OTS rod to achieve your goal.
Pretty sure most of them offer a lifetime warranty, including Scott, Sage, Winston and Loomis. Now, those warranties apply only to the original owner when bought through an authorized dealer and Loomis may charge a replacement fee if they determine that the damage was due to normal wear and tear, accident or neglect, but every fly rod I've ever owned came with a lifetime warranty - and every broken rod was repaired or replaced for a very nominal fee.No rod builder can stay in business offering a lifetime warranty, plain and simple. If they do it’s because they are buying $10 Chinese rod blanks and are running a sweat shop.
Not at all so. I've broken plenty from fighting fish over the past 30+ years.On the topic of warranties, I will say that rod blanks will only break from misuse and abuse. Rods don't randomly break, if there is a flaw in blank construction, the rod will break within the first handful of uses
