Under the article section there is a great article by Al Goldberg it a four parter so be prepared but it's step by step and pretty comprehensive. There are also some very good books for beginners like the Flex Coats book Step By Step Rod Building. This book is loaded with illustrations and pictures. It pretty much takes you step by step through the process I bought it when I wrapped my first rod and still refer to it now. With these basic tools and help from the guys here you should be good to go. smile.gif That out of the way what blank are you plannin on building on?

I just built my first 2 rods this fall and these were the steps that I took and worked well for me.

 

Step 1) Buy and Read Tom Kirkmans book

 

Step 2) Buy and Read Dale Clemens book

 

Step 3) Search this forum and read as much as you can about building surf rods

 

Step 4) ask any more specific questions you have in this forum

 

Step 5) Build your rod and become addicted

 

Good luck!

I see you have a brand (lami = good choice smile.gif ) now what do you intend to use this rod for bait (held or spiked), plugs (size of plugs) or other (bridge, live bait, other) ? This should help you narrow down the choices a little.
