Welcome To Backcountry Sportsmen Custom Rods!
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creations. I hope to build you something that lasts a lifetime and catches many of fish.
I specialize in building custom inshore saltwater casting and spinning rods to meet the high demands of our discriminating customer . BCS custom rods strives to keep the customer in mind no matter what type of fishing you do. I started building custom rods in 1990 at the Fishermen's Center in Rivera Beach, Fl. I learned from the help of some great rod builders Bill Buckland, Bob Faulkner and a few others along the way. I enjoy building rods and do it mainly as a hobby, rather than work.
Rod Blanks and Components:
Custom Rod Blanks and components I use: St Croix, American Tackle, Shikari, fuji, Pacific Bay and many many more quality companies.
Custom Rod Pricing
Cost of the rod components vary depending on the what you select. Because of this, I don't carry a large selection of inventory. The greatest expense is going to be the rod blank. These may vary from as little as $35 to as much as $200 or more. Other components may very as well. Silicone carbide guides are more expensive than Aluminum Oxide, Hardloy, or even Alconite guides. The charge for the components is the cost, plus shipping. In the event a particular component is not available, I will contact you and we can discuss available options.
Labor charge for building a rod is $100. This is for a rod that is simple in design with a thread wrap consisting of your choice of colors. Custom marbleizing and other rod art designs are available as well. Pricing will be determined be request.I also repair rods, guides and do re-wraps on older rods. Please inquire about pricing.
Terms of Purchase
Once we have selected your components for your custom rod, the cost of the materials will be due at the time I order them from my suppliers.
I accept: Money Orders / Cash / PayPal /Personal checks are accepted, but will need to clear before the components will be ordered. The balance is due upon completion of the rod and prior to shipping.
Digital pictures of your rod can be taken during the rod's assembly if you wish to see the progress.
In the event your rod becomes damaged or broken, return it to the address on the tube I send with the rod. The broken rod blank will be returned to the manufacturer for their evaluation and adjustment, according to their warranty. Once the rod blank is received back from the manufacturer, appropriate repairs can then be made. Components needing to be replaced, will be at their usual cost. Labor to repair the rod will be performed at ONE-HALF of the original cost. This warranty will be in effect for the life of the rod or the rod builder.
You are assured that the quality components you ordered the first time will be the same one's we will use on the replacement. Your satisfaction is guaranteed on both new rods and rod repairs.
