you can go see thorne brothers in Fridley. They have tons of rod blank choices. Midwest rods has the split handle design. All great companies with great rods!

Outside the cost of the blank itself, how much does a custom made rod run?

I will second Rods by Engel. He does very good work and is helpful in deciding what is necessary to have on the rod. I am sure Scoot will see this and get you his contact info if you are interested.

That all depends on what quality components you go with.

From the guides to fancy handles, it can run the price up considerably.

I'd say anywhere from 150 to sky's the limit.

I too can say Mr. Engle builds a great rod. I have a couple and they are both great. Even put my initials on ot.

I had Fishin' Freaks custom make a dock rod for me - 5'6" MH spinning rod with Rogue blank. Ended up being around $160 or so if I remember correctly. Wanted something short for close quarters but with enough backbone to yank em out too. Put a Pfleuger spinning reel with 6.2:1 ratio on it and it is a sweet deal.

Most companies can also just put the names on a off the shelf rod too. I don't think they charge for it, and if they do it is not much.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
