    Default Websites for buying building materials

    I'm trying to decide if I want to get into building my own rods with my dad and was wondering where you guys buy all your stuff? I want to build a Spey Rod I was looking at the Baston Blanks but how do you know what all will fit the graphite as far as reel seat cork and so forth?

    Thanks

    Go to batson's site and under technical forum they have pdfs for suggested components for their blanks. You can buy all the stuff listed or use it as a guide for customizing the rod.

    J stockard is a good site as is utmost enterprises (discount on batson stuff), others include acid rod, mudhole custom tackle, cabelas has some, bingham enterprises, golden witch and ye older English fly shop. Love getting reel seats from David Winslow rods and decals from Charlie at tight lines custom rods. Those are some places I like.

    I get the majority of my stuff from Hook & Hackle. They've been very good to me over the years.
    Sometimes you can find some real bargains at Schnieder's Custom Rods .

    If you are looking for Batson blanks or components, check out Utmost Enterprises. Excellent prices (and discounts), clearance and minimal waiting on out of stock items. I don't have any association with them but Carol will set you right.

    Did you check batsons technical forum? They have the info for bot rx6 and rx7 13' 7wt spey blanks. They include suggestions for all components including guide sizes and spacing.
