Each rod blank can be registered online with its individual serial number by either the custom rod builder or the end user of the rod.

One of the first rods I built (2016)gave it a face lift last fall going strong stays in my top 5 a. Considering build a new version with carbon grips
This MedLight Extra fast is such a great rod, fun rod to fish with. Walleye, crappy, smallies, etc.
Bought 2 of these as my first rod builds to learn some stuff before I step up and start doing some saltwater rods. 1st one turned out awesome! sadly on my first fishing outing, the rod broke first cast. Mud hole worker suggests I was using to heavy of weight for the rod, but I was using a bobber and shiner. Not only that but the rod broke 3 inches from the butt of the blank. Been fishing my whole life and never had a rod break like that. I’d suggest looking elsewhere for quality blanks based off my MH experience. MH suggests 25 dollar warranty plus shipping to get the same blank again. I’m gonna have to buy new cork, reelseat, guides, and time just to build a rod that will crumble in hand first cast… No thanks.. After spending hundreds in rod building gear and hearing how great MH customer service is I am sorry to say that is not the experience I have had. Going to be taking my business elsewhere. If anyone wants to pay for shipping you can have my other blank.. Not interested in putting the time and money in something so cheap.
Cole, thank you for the feedback. We are sorry to hear about your recent experience. A representative has reached out to further assist you with this matter. We look forward to finding a fitting resolution for you.

Purchased this for a dropshot rod for my wife. The purple metallic is a beautiful color in person. After using it, I wish it came in a light power in the metallic series but anyone using heavier dropshot weight, 3/16 and up, should be very happy with this rod. Pair this with LZR guides, braid to fluoro leader, and go wreck some smallmouth with it.
