Auction is for a brand new Custom built St. Croix SCV 4 piece fly rod 3 to 6 weight with a St. Croix rod tube(your choice either travel tube or rod and reel tube). All of our rods come with custom turned handles to give you that truly "Custom" look you are looking for. I do not use the "pre-shaped" handles most rod builders prefer, since the resulting rod looks too similar to the factory equivalent rod. The whole idea of a custom rod is to be different. Many rod builders today will do custom handle work for a large price tag. I believe the premium is usually worth it as most do excellent work. Our idea is to provide the handle work for your custom look without the price premium. Custom turned handles are our specialty and they set us apart.
You will notice that we allow best offers on all our custom rods. Please keep these things in mind: Please do not offer $200 for a $400 rod. That is a waste of time for everyone involved. If we are booked solid we will not accept any offers below list price. If we have openings we would be happy to consider any reasonable offers to save you a little money. Please use the best offer responsibly. Thank you.
The blank comes in a beautiful Gloss Gallatin Green finish complete with St. Croix rod sticker and lifetime warranty through the manufacturer. Here is what St. Croix has to say about the SCV blank series:
"St. Croix's new high-modulus/high strain graphite is the ultimate in high performance, and delivers greater strength without sacrificing fishing performance. Results in fast, quick loading rods that cast with unbelievable ease and accuracy. Combined with our new 100% carbon-matte scrim to create blanks with weights up to 20% lighter than competitive models."

Guides will be your choice of Hopkins & Holloway Titanium finish strippers and snake guides, or replace the stripper guides with Fuji model ICLNSG Titanium finish SIC strippers. The rod is completed with a matching REC anodized aluminum winding check and a hook keeper if you want one. There are literally 1000's of different hardware combinations available today, so don't be afraid to call us at (218)393-5315 or email if you would like different hardware for your rod.
The possible variations for your custom handle are endless. The only restrictions we have are that we only work with cork(no wood or EVA). We can use standard flor grade cork rings, rubberized rings, spotted cork, burl cork rings in natural, brown, red, green, and blue, burnt cork, burnt cork mixed with natural cork, all in 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch thicknesses. Want a standard full wells with burnt cork accents? Great! Want a 7 inch half wells all in natural burl? That works too! Maybe there is a new cork product that we haven't heard about that you would like to try. We can use that too. The decision is entirely up to you.
