Default Re: Building from a Blank

I thought about building from a TFO Pro blank. The factory built rod is $150,
and the blank is $75. I'd take the $75 difference, and buy a really nice reel seat, handle, and some Recoil Ti guides. I fished in some really cold weather
this past winter, and found that my Ti guides hold very little ice compared to
regular chrome.....VERY little. Even with epoxy and thread, a nice rod could be built for the price of a factory Pro.
