Everything you need, but the blank and components. No need to get a power wrapper. Personal opinion: they are mainly for guys wrapping deep water boat rods with the double wraps and all.
This is a very good package to get started with, quality materials that will last you. But if you want to piece together everything go to ebay. Search and you shall find everything at attractive prices. Google fishing rod building and you will find more than you can ever read about how to do build a rod step by step. I bet you can even find step by step on this forum. I just didn't search this forum. Go to Youtube and find all the instruction you need including one that has about 20 steps to guide you through.
If you tie flies then you already know that you can spend much more than you need. Well building rods is the same. Just another addiction. When you build the rod and the fly, it just seems more rewarding when landing that fish.
