I highly recommend this business for a custom rod build. Ken Bellaire went above and beyond my expectations and built me a rod I was extremely impressed with. It was worth every penny. His attention to detail and communication made my build comfortable and stress free. Kudos to him!


Anyone needing a high quality rod this is the place and Ken also does repairs that so awesome to have someone local building and repairing rods


Ken made me a custom tribute rod. This rod is absolutely perfect. I strongly recommend getting one from him. Thanks Ken. You nailed it. I'll be getting another one in the future.
