Re: Who wants to...
A friend of mine has built me a few rods and recently decided to stop taking any new orders due to time/family/financial commitments.
As a result, I have decided to start building my own. I'm going to play around with a few cheap blanks that will serve as guinea pigs/back up/spare rods. Once I get the general steps down, another friend of mine wants a 4wt so I will build that for him. Then I will be building an Xi3 for myself!
This may be a fun option for you as well...nothing like the pride of fishing your own creations.
