    Great rods designed and built by Captneilf!

    Hi,

    Besides designing/crafting custom rods per order I have a line of rods called The Long Islander Series. They can be purchased off the rack at any time. Many folks told me that they would like a rod built by me but the customs did not fit their wallet. I thoroughly understand. So I have been and will continue to come up with new models.

    I recently received the new prices for blanks and components from the supplier. The purpose of the post is to say that all the rods that are already built will stay at the old price, $125. No increase. As I build new ones they will be at the new price.

    The blanks and components are Rainshadows and Forecast. All guides and tiptops are braid friendly. They work!

    The black rods are underwrapped in a metallic thread, gold, red, green electric blue or royal blue. The guide wraps are always black nylon.

    The 7' Medium also comes in a white blank thereby allowing me to use nylon thread and more color choices for the underwraps.

    The grips are black and synthetic material, EVA. The white blank can be ordered using colored EVA grips.

    I start with 7' blanks and trim for 6' or 6 1/2' as desired.

    Custom decals can be ordered. Name or boat name etc. $7 charge.

    Here are the models.

    PB Special- solid fiberglas, 6', 8 guides and 10-20# test line.

    Inshore Medium, E glass, 7', 6 1/2' or 6', 8 guides, 12-25# test line, 1/2 to 2 oz lures, can bounce 10 oz silver bullets, works 8 oz sinker well. Also comes in white blank. This model has taken double digit tog, striper to 30#+ and 30-35# fish in Florida.

    Inshore Medium Heavy, E glass, 7', 6 1/2' or 6', 8 guides, 15-30# test line, 3/4 to 3 oz lures, works 10 or 12 oz sinkers well. A work horse.

    Twitchin' Stick, a graphite standard modulus blank, conventional reel model, trigger reel seat, 7', 6 1/2' or 6', 9 guides, 10-17# test line, 1/4 to 3/4 oz lures for bouncing Spros etc for fluke. The spin version of this rod presently has 6 Fuji guides installed.







    These rods can be shipped. For more info call 631-567-8049.

    Pink Rod

    Looking for a pink rod for the wife. I do not want to buy a Barbie pole. Looking for 6 1/2" spinning rod, Med/heavy action. Can you make one or are they next to impossible to make? There aren't many available so it has to be something difficult about them.

    I have seen pink blanks online with one particular rod builders supply. They were E-glass and as best I can recall they weren't all that pricey....If you'r wife wants a spinning rod it would be pretty easy to build.

    I have found pink Ugly Sticks (on the internet) but they are from Australia. Anyone hear of anything closer?

    yup... check muddhole. I just ordered two of the pink ones. another option would be to buy somthing like a gator glass blank and pait it prior to your build. I am personally not a fan of painting blanks....but so far as i know most are painted at the factory.....pink rods are cool
