Tim is giving me a blank (a good one; a Lami XRA) to build for the Christmas family auction. 

 

I dunno how I should do it: build it on spec, and auction it off; or auction off a real custom rod experience, one where whoever bids for it gets the true custom-suit treatment, where every bit is designed for him: the handle is the length he wants, the handle material is what he wants (cork tape, whatever), the reel seat is sized to his hand, the guides are sized to fit his reel, the colors match his ZeeStaal trousers, etc. 

In the true spirit of this place, I will let you idiots decide what I should do. Vote early, and vote often.

Custom.

I want mine with a built in flask in the butt.

True fact: I had a guy ask me if I could somehow configure a rod with a removable one-hitter in the butt. 

I told that dirty hippy to get lost. But it probably could be done -- and it wouldn't even be that hard.

Depends on how much of a headache you would like to take on

 

I would either build it to spec or let someone else do it

Are you any good, or are you a hack?

 

I'm all confused now, of course when you say something, I picture Frank.

 

Picture Frank building a rod.

 

See what I mean?

Well, if you suck, let someone else build it - for starters.

build it on spec - that way the bidders can see what they are getting. and that's what Mike told me to do for my flyes.
