Cost of the rod components vary immensely depending on the what you select. Because of this, I don't carry a large selection of inventory. Generally speaking, the greatest expense is going to be the rod blank. These may vary from as little as $50 to as much as $300 or more. Other components may very as well. Silicone carbide guides are more expensive than Aluminum Oxide, Hardloy, or even Alconite. Titanium guides are even more expensive, but essential when fishing salt water on a regular basis to prevent corrosion. The charge for the components is the retail cost, as listed in the suppliers catalog, plus shipping. The link is just one example of my suppliers. These prices will be listed on your itemized order sheet. You are guaranteed that the components listed are the ones used to construct your rod. In the event a particular component is not available, I will contact you and we can discuss available options.
Labor charge for building a rod is $130 and an additional $20.00 charge for finishes, threads,etc... This is for a rod that is simple in design and a thread wrap consisting of a 2 colors of your choice. One for the wrap and one for the end trimband.
