Default Starting out: kit or separate purchases?

Hey all. I'm considering trying my hand at rod building more and more every day now. I was wondering if you guys suggest starting with some sort of kit, or buying the components separately?

A kicker question, and this may be a stupid one, do blanks come with the male and female ends (as in, the connection holes) already created, or is that something you have to do? I was looking through components today and saw ferrules, and didn't quite understand what they were. I thought a ferrule was just a finished blank.

Thanks in advance for the advice.
