you ruined it with the Billboard with the company name and rod range on it. The owner knows what the rating is and shouldn't have to advertise that or the rod builder.

If you need that information, make it fine print. It is comparable to driving a car with the car name in 3 foot letters on the side.

i only build rods for my self and after a few years and to many rods it's hard to remember all the spec ts on the rods and since it's custom rod the builder could put what ever he wants on it if i was to build a rod for some body else i would ask them what they want on it.
