Saw this guy mentioned elsewhere as a primo builder of glass rods.  Not sure I want to go that route and may want to start cheaper if I decide to, but figured somebody on here might know him and would give an opinion on his rods.  Hell, he might even be on here - what do I know????

Thanks.

Heard of the company, never cast one of the rods.
The Fiberglass Manifesto just put a blog post about this company up:

Might be more info there.  I like that site, and glass rods are cool.

I had two of his original series. Build quality is top notch. Blanks are rolled from one of the best and I am sure he's dialed his tapers in more. I wish I had kept one, but they didn't get used like they should and I made money on both so  d:b
