Hi everyone, I am new to the rod building game. I have just built my first rod. It was very simple without any crosswraps or anything fancy. It was so enjoyable to build, and I cant wait to build another. The only issue is that I feel like it is a really expensive hobby. The components from the first rod that I built were bought from Mudhole. The rod that I build cost about 100$ all said and done. This is by no means super expensive, but it is also not cheap. I see many people with rows upon rows of fishing rods that they have built themselves. Although it is possible, I simply can not see these people spending 100+ dollars on each fishing rod. I thought that there was possibly some other source where people were buying the components for these fishing rods. Is there one that I do not currently know about? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance...
