Default Re: building own rod

OK. I think I have decided to build a less expensive rod for my first time out. I am looking at the H & H IM6 kit with the charcaol blank. The kit at Hook and Hackle is only $70.32 without a rod case. If you add the rod case it is still only $87.10. This kit haas everything that you need to build the rod. I might substitute a few items like thread color. I might even dress it up a bit with a custom reel seat or special grip from some of the online suppliers. Any thoughts? Has anyone built a rod on this blank before? Oh yeah, it will be a 2 piece, 7'9" 3 weight.
