    Thanks Dan.....it's really just about knowing what your limitations are and staying within them. When I decided I wanted to build my own rod I first did a ton of research....and then I did some more! I took stock of the tools I had on hand and what I needed. I thought out how deep into it I wanted to go i.e. just assemble off the shelf parts or go all custom i.e. made my own grips and anodized my reel seat black and red myself. Nothing will ruin a good time/project faster than not having the right tools and getting yourself in over your head.
