    Guys,

    I would like to get a custom rod built for me but do not know of any builders other than JPR. If you guys could recommend any good builders at good prices chime in.

    Armbreaker or BarBar tackle are both good builders also. I have one of both and they have both caught fish and are very sweet rods. One an OTI 2 piece that I had build conventional. Its my favorite rod.

    Hey Rich, I would go with Paul from JPR. I had a 50lb OTI spinner made by him which I'm picking up tonight....can't wait! I know Nick and Glenn have been very satisfied with their JPR rods as well, maybe they can chime in.

    Arm breaker offers great price but I don't know if I am a fan of the liquid looking wrap.
