Default Custom Rods and some reels for sale! Updated 4/13/2020

I used to build rods several years ago and have accumulated a ton of rods and extra reels over the years from making demo rods. I don't fish much anymore, so I am selling off a lot of my gear. Most of the gear is used, but in very good shape. All of these rods were handbuilt by me.

Planer rods:
Never fished, some scuffing from storage/bringing to show people. These were some prototypes/demos I built, but never sold.

Full roller Planer rod, Aftco Roller guides and swivel roller tip top, #4 black unibutt ferrule, $175 shipped CONUS

2 piece tuna popping rods:
Mudhole 50-100 Tuna popping rod, American Tackle nanolite guides, black/silver wraps) new, never fished, $175.
These 3 are 7'6" 2 piece rods where the entire handle portion comes off (foregrip, reel seat, rear grip and gimbal) for easier transport.

Trolling setups:

Calstar 655XHE glass blank, full Alps Roller guides, slick butt. Light metallic blue underwraps, black overwraps. 5'6" long, asking $175 local pick up or add shipping cost.

Avet 30/2 (spooled with braid and has top shot) on a Rainshadow 5'6" 40-80# composite RX6/E Glass blank (feels very much like a Seeker Black Steel 56XH blank/rod), Spiral wrapped with a Neptune spiral roller tip top and ringed guides, blue and black wraps. Asking $450 for combo, $350 shipped reel, $150 rod local or add shipping. Rod has never been fished, reel has been fished on other rods.

Rainshadow 5'6" 50-130# composite blank (RX6/E Glass), Fuji SIC guides, Neptune spiral roller tip top in a spiral wrap, black and gold wraps. Brand new, never fished. No reel. $200.

Tuna/Cod jigging combo:
Seeker Hercules Midnight blue 60H blank built in a spiral wrap with Fuji SIC guides, blue and silver wraps, blue grips paired with a Daiwa Saltiga 40 Star Drag reel with a Jigging Master handle. My personal tuna jigging rod for Canyon tuna and smaller BFT, asking $500.

I am in Central CT and can ship the reels or planer rods, and can drive to RI, NY, MA to meet with buyers as well. I have the same screen name on CTfisherman.com if you need reference feedback.

I have lots of pictures, some are attached (sorry some are dusty or blurry, they have been in storage for 6 years or so!), so I am putting in the link to the pics instead of posting over 30 pics: https://photos.app.goo.gl/spmkfi6HyuXNcUCu9

I can vouch for this gentleman and his work.
He was a member of another site I was very active on also.
Exceptional rod builder. I’ve seen a ton of his stuff.
You wouldn’t be disappointed with any of these rods.

Hi Taz.
Miss the old members of 360.

No, I had to stop building several years ago due to getting sensitized to the epoxies. They made me physically sick and dizzy.

Its in pretty good shape, some boat rash on the reel foot, but it was more of a test casting reel than a fishing reel. I think it is spooled with Sufix braid, 20 or 30# IIRC, but I am not sure.
