I dont know who taught you how to build a rod… You make the rod how it is supposed to be made but very sloppy on your wraps. That’s not good. I make rods all day long

GhettoRanger says:

A small hole in that end cap would save you a lot of aggravation.

Brendan O Callaghan says:

hay awesome video. but i was looking at other videos and I think you are to apply epoxy to the wraps in layers to allow the epoxy soak in to the thread but hay great job

What is the name of this kit you got

bigoledude1 says:

I watched a couple of tutorials where the rod builder burned the tips of the tag ends that were poking up.  They became invisible.  Great teaching video.  Not many folks have the ability to provide information in a way that’s very easy to understand.  You have this ability.  You should use it more!

Mario Zamudio says:

Jaja yes

scuffzy says:

did this run you?

gary lutsky says:

ok joop,i am going to build a rod,i watched your vid  great  vid ,now  I think I can do it . what blank do you recommend , I want a rod for bottom fishing 7.6 to 8 ft spinning reel,to catch 20 lb snapper and grouper,and cobia, something with action, no broom stick,o did you make the gaff vid yet

Will Stofferahn says:

Most tip top glue has an amber or yellow/brown type color. This glue has a higher heating point and your tip should not be able to heat up and rotate while the rod is in your car.

Frank Gandoy says:

were did u get the stick

Rick Payne says:

If you wanted to get rid of the air bubbles use a lighter or micro torch and quickly swipe by the air bubble. Lure makers do this to pop the air bubbles in the expoy while it is drying.
As long the rotation of the rod helps distributes the expoy evenly around the rod for a smoothervfinsh.

Will Stofferahn says:

You should file down the top of the guides so there is less of a transition for your wraps to go up them and it will keep you from having a gap in your wraps. Don’t file the bottom of the guide feet unless there is a burr.

Boca Raton Bassin' says:

Hey, this video is very helpful and I’m looking to make a custom rod my self. However, I’m confused as to knowing which sizes of reel seats, grips, etc will fit my blank. It seems like on the sizes for each part are in different units. Anyways, if you could help me out with figuring out which parts will be compatible with each other, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
