Custom Built Rods

We offer a variety of ways to customise your new rod

  • Your choice of custom colours
  • Custom labelling eg. your name, boat name or business name
  • Custom build from blank up, guides, tip, seat, and eva's (fully personalised)
  • or a combination of these options
Please note that all of these options add time to the delivery of your rod, contact us for timeframes.

    Custom Colours

    If you would like a rod built from the catalogue with custom colours, the pricing  is for an underbind colour, (major colour), an accent colour (minor colour) and black overbinding of the guide, extra colours to this adds extra cost. Check out the range of colours on Custom Colours page.

    Signature Offshore Custom Basketweave

    Basket weaves are standard on many of the rods in our range, where space is available. We match the basketweave colours to the underbind and accent colours.

    Custom Labelling

    You might like to personalise your new rod with a custom label.  For example "Handcrafted for Mike" or maybe your boat name, or special occasion.  You can turn a rod into a trophy for your competiton  by putting the name of the contest and the year on it.  We can also put on your company name so that you can give a rod as a gift or promotional item.

    Please note not all images can be printed on to blank, but contact us if you have something you would like.

    Custom Build

    We also offer a full custom build service, with a full range of NZ made and imported blanks to suit your fishing requirements.  This is best done by contacting us, by phone or email.

    The things you need to think about are:

    • Type of fishing
    • Length of rod
    • Blank action
    • Overhead or spin
    • Line weight
    • Guide style
    • Alloy or graphite reel seat, eva setup (full grip or split grip style)

    We are happy to guide you through this process, but it helps us if you have already thought about the above.  Average build times for a custom rod ranges from 5 weeks to 3 months, depending on availability of the components chosen.  Quality takes time, and we pride ourselves in the finish of all our rods.
