And not only will I share my thoughts on this particular rod, but also custom rods in general.

Custom Rod Pros
The biggest pros of getting a custom rod are:
- They’re usually made with lots of care by one person, so you can be sure you’re getting a high-quality rod
- You can choose the specs and components of your rod (I very purposefully chose all of the specs mentioned above because they are best for my fishing style)
- You can get a custom design (pictured below)
Custom Rod Cons
The biggest cons of getting a custom rod are pricing and time for delivery.
You get what you pay for, and high-quality rods take time and money to be made well.
I’ve enjoyed using this rod and it has passed the test of handling big fish like the red pictured above.
