Default Introduction

Hello All,
Todd Vivian from Mud Hole Custom Tackle. As a new sponsor to the All Coast Network I wanted to introduce my self and let you know that I will be monitoring this forum regularly if you have any questions or comments about any of our products. I look forward to the interaction from this board and realize from scanning through a few threads that I know many of you from other forums.

Regards,

I've been eyeing the Mudhole page for a few years now wanting to pull the trigger on a build, but haven't for a few different reasons. With you as a resource, you'll definitely be hearing me asking questions this winter.

Admins, awesome addition. I approve.

Todd,

Great to see your presence on one of my local forums. I'm a custom builder with a wholesale account at Mudhole. I can't say enough good things about the MHX line of blanks and the expansive depth of Mudhole's catalog. Not to mention the outstanding customer service I have experienced when dealing with Mudhole over the phone and through emails.

To anyone else reading this thread rest assured that any questions regarding rod building or blank design, Todd can answer them. He is a legend in the industry and having him here at CLF makes him a valuable resource.

I purchase my rod building stuff from Mudhole and am very happy with the quality of the products and service. Next time I buy more supplies that's where I'm going.

Whats the approximate start up cost to begin rod building... Are there any special tools or machines required??? It sounds like a hobby most guys could get into unless it's going to cost $500 to make a $100 rod

No special tools required to get started. I built many rods using a coffee cup to hold the thread which ran thru pages of a phone book for tension.

I would really recommend taking one of our classes if you have the chance. And if not we offer a ton of information online to guide you seamlessly through the process. In all reality you can get into this for an equipment cost of $150.00 to $200.00 and we have some fantastic kits in the $70.00 range.

Rich,
We sell an equipment package with a dryer / handwrapper and all the necessary products to build your rods. And as I stated above we have kits that begin in the $70.00 range which would be the equivalent of a $179.00 - $229.00 rod.

This FSB-1 startup kit is currently on sale for $139.99

Regards,

Todd
