What do you think? Can a googan build a rod? I'm looking for a 6'6" to 7' spinning rod to be used from a boat. I'll probably throw a Shimano 4500 on it. I want to throw 1 to 4 ounce plugs. Most will be in the 2 to 3 ounce range with an occasional 4 ounce 14 inch jointed pikie.
What do I need to build my first rod? Can someone throw together a materials list and make a recommendation that won't break the bank. This is my first, so we need to be gentle.
Must be capable of bringing in the 50 I'm dreaming about.
