Bill W (Branson, MO, US)

Great beginner kit, all the tools needed to get started

Tyler Clapper (Naples, FL, US)

Got this kit because I wanted to see if making your own rod versus a store bought would make a difference and if the quality would be different, and whether this would be something I’d like to turn into a business, and I’m very happy with the results. It was a lot of fun and wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, a lot of focus and precision into it, but the kit has all the supplies you need to start up and has worked great so far.

Chris Porter (Tucson, AZ, US)
Nice beginner kit.

I got this kit to repair some rods with broken line guides. Might try to build one, after I practice a little more. Great kit, easy to put together and use.

Jim McConnell (Greenville, NC, US)
Everything you need to get started!

My wife bought me a rod kit for my birthday but I still needed the tools, epoxy and thread to get going. This kit was the easiest and most economical way to make sure I got everything I needed in one order.

The kit worked like a dream and I just fished my first rod build yesterday!

Kenny Correll (Orlando, FL, US)
