Difficult? No. Time consuming? Yes. There is a learning curve to making your own rods. It takes lots of studying first, accumulating the proper tools, practice and plenty of patience. It can sometimes save you a little money, but usually it is more expensive. I know for me at least I select higher grade components than stock. The benefit is you get a rod built to your exact specifications and the satisfaction of using a rod you made yourself.
