Customised new build

So, is it really more expensive to have a custom built rod, or set of rods, than to simply buy some off-the-shelf items? It's a hard question to answer as it really does depend upon the specification chosen by you, the angler. However, a rod built to a similar specification to the standard rod, but with a few touches personal to you, will have a very similar price tag. And some tasty upgrades - like a cork handle or Fuji 'K' series guides - may well cost less than you expect. By far the best option is to drop us a line or send us an email so that we can discuss your personal requirements - what have you got to lose!

Here are some starting prices for reference...

Refurbishment and upgrades

Again, a tricky question to answer without the specifics of your rod or knowing what you require. Will the blank need to be stripped of laquer and re-finished? Are your guides in good condition and re-useable or would you like new ones? What handle option would you prefer? Lots of questions, and again the best option is to call us or send an email.

Handle upgrades are very popular at the moment and, in particular, cork handle conversions to carp rods. As an example a cork conversion using super grade cork, a fuji DPS reel seat with a stainless butt cap and reel seat will cost around £70 per rod - you can also specify a line clip and/or a 'wedding ring' collar as extras.

Check out the restoration case study on the services page to see what we can do for you.


An easy one! An individual guide can be replaced for £9.00 per guide, or £8 per guide if you require more than one (car boot lids have a lot to answer for!), plus the price of the guide. Guide prices vary massively depending on size, pattern and manufacturer so email us the details of your rod and which guide/s need replacing and we will get you a price.
