Default Beginner Rod Building - Janns Rod Kit

Well, I can tell this one's going to be an adventure. I bought the basic fiberglass kit and it came today. I was hoping this would be a sweet easy introduction. The directions are worse than terrible though, on 1 side of a piece of paper with no pictures and undescriptive directions. Has anyone put one of these together before or have the patience to help a newbie out? I'm thinking of taking pictures of the components and then asking "what do I do with this thing?"

Go to and buy their book-Step by Step Rod Building-for $7.00. It is the best small instruction book I have seen. You might find some good instructions on the net too. Remember you have to build the grip with the reel seat first. Good luck.[/i]
