Hi Axel27,

I have not heard of them but I took a look at their site. They have put a lot of effort into their site and probably some money. I like the Build Your Own Rod tool. They didn't claim that they made their own blanks so they must be from over seas. They have some good looking stuff but I have no idea as to the quality or casting ability.

I used their build tool and came up with a nicely appointed k357 fresh water rod for $455. Not bad to get custom features and Recoil guides.

If you do any business with them please let us know how it turns out.

Frank

I have there 43t, described as a fast action but casts like a middle action.
It does perform a lovely roll cast.
Build quality is excellent and JP is a pleasure to deal with, i have recommended his rods to several of my clients.
K357 sounds like a good blank.
Cheers
Richard
