Off-The-Shelf (OTS) The overall properties of the "Off-The-Shelf (OTS)" fishing rod is extremely dependent on the components attached to the blank and more importantly the process by which those components are attached to the blank. Thus the number type and placement of guides; the wrapping; and the choice and placement of handle material/components totally affect the end use. When it comes to the overall quality and performance we all know that not all fishing rods are created equal.
Smaller and fewer numbers of guides are often used to save a few cents. A two-cent savings adds up over a production run. Others use components that may look like their name-brand counterparts but are of considerably less quality. When it comes to a custom fishing rod you will always know the exact components because you select the components for the build. Additionally a custom builder can assist you with your selection... again an OTS manufacturer only provides you what "they want you to have (seems backwards huh?)." Example: you go to dinner at a local restaurant and soon after sitting down at your assigned table the waiter delivers your food... without asking your meal preference.
