Custom Rod Builders. For the most part custom rod builders are and have been the foundation of the sport-fishing (i.e. fishing rod) industry for many years. However it is important to note that both the custom builders and the major manufacturers are reliant upon each other to some degree - i.e. both drive new technologies and the application of innovative processes and construction for the industry as a whole. New material and component development is usually a manufacturing derivative whereas the innovation of fishing rod construction continues to be developed from the small cadre of professional custom builders. This stated the custom builders in some form are all considered "hobbyists" however our discussion will focus on the custom fishing rods crafted by professional craftsmen and builders many of whom own and operate as small businesses routinely producing finished performance products and equipment to the general public.
Custom builders provide competitive cost advantages by building their fishing rods "one at a time" rendering obsolete the need for exhaustive inventory labor costs and material waste. This permits excess capital for the use of top quality components and materials. Additionally custom builders routinely do not require capital investment and expenditure for overhead business expenses such as: advertising showrooms galleries etc. Another advantage of "one at a time" builds is that high-end components equate to non-corrosive scratch resistant and a more durable final product thereby eliminating the need for reinforcing materials additional assembly processes and warranty repair.
