Hi Todd,
I should have only quoted the ;

"Are there any special tools or machines required???"


I am full aware of costs, supplies, time, logistics etc. involved , but ja was not.

I understood that, and as you know it is fully possible to build a rod with nothing special. My first was done with a card board box, and basic supplies from a hardware store.

Then I have no idea why you are telling me you sell kits...I knew that too.
If you read my post that I cited (which goes through the whole basic rod building procedure) , I'm not sure what you are trying to tell me, or how it's relevant to what I posted.

hey todd,
nice seeing you here. i'm looking on building a mhx st1024-f med mag and was wondering if it would be enough for the king salmon up to 20-25lbs? should i go to the st1025-f? are these true fast actions or mod fast? thanks for your help,

Jim,
that blank will handle the Salmon fine. What application are you using it in?

thanks todd,
i'll be building a spinning rod for casting spoons and cranks in the 3/8-3/4 range,15-20lb braid. maybe i should try the microwaves guides too. i just broke a rainshadow sh1025 which was the rod i used for this application. are these true fast actions or mod fast? i'll probably have to build 2 cause my son wants one also. thanks again for you time,

jim

Jim,
the 1024F-MHX is a fast action.

jm529,

I just built a 1023 for a salmon fisherman to be used primarily for casting crankbaits in the fall. Perfect action and power rating for 800 series ripsticks and the "CDS" type cranks that are all the rage. lol

The 1024 sounds like a good match for cranks & light spoons, but if it were up to me I would build a 1023 & a 1024.

Kit it out with Fuji K-series H frames in a rapid choke layout down to size 5 running guides and you'll have yourself an excellent casting lightweight salmon slayer.

thanks ed, but i'm worried about the power to turn these fish. these fish are running big this year, broke a few off to docks already. i might try a 1024 and 1025 just to see the power in these blanks. probably will try the microwaves guides out to see what it's all about. i build all my spinning rods with the rapid choke system and want to compare the two.

rainshadow is sending me a dss1025 under warranty for the sh1025 that i broke so i'll be pretty busy trying to get them done before the season ends.

No worries man. Tough to turn those fish regardless what blank you pick, there will always be those fish that will over power you by either rocking/docking you if you don't have enough pressure on them or by pulling the hooks if you apply too much pressure.

I prefer to build my rods to the lures/techniques and let my fish fighting abilities (or lack thereof lol) handle the fish.

I fished all of last year's salmon season with a 6'10" SB822.5 and 10 lb braid. Caught 8 salmon, lost 2. Biggest was 18 or 19 lbs. Not too bad for my dropshot rod,
