Many people ask us this question.  Well, the answer to that question has about a million answers. Hopefully this  will help you out. 

  1.  Custom rods are built the way you want them. From the type of rod, size, style of guides, color options, length, handle choice - the options are endless! You can get as simple or as detailed as you want.                        
  2. Custom rods are built on the spine. Purchasing a store built pole, your buying a pole that has been mass produced and typically thrown together in a factory setting with little care as to how it was put together. At BigFUUT we make sure that your pole is built to withstand the load of your catch by ensuring that your guides are built along the spine. This helps support your rod during the fight and increases its durability.     
  3. Custom rods may be a bit pricer than a $25.00 rod from the corner store, but you're buying a product that is being built with your success in mind. 

Please contact us with any questions that you have, we are happy to work with you and design the best pole for your needs in your price range.
