Dear RodBuilders,

About two years ago, we launched an 'opt-in' rodbuilder directory - all that is required is for a custom rod builder to send an email to rodmap@northforkcomposites.com and we can add you to the directory.

[northforkcomposites.com]

A useful feature is that a customer can search by zip code, and within a range of miles (lets say they want to find someone that is within 100 miles of their address)

I have gone through the Directory that is linked above, and a lot of the contact information is no longer relevant.

I would like to start a discussion on replacing the Directory link above, with a link to the NFC directory (It does not matter if a rod builder is an NFC customer to be on the directory)

Over the next few months, we will start to advertise the forum on Google/Social Media as a resource for rodbuilders and consumers looking to have a custom rod made - the map would be valuable for builders as it would essentially be free source of advertising for those that are interested.

Best Regards,
Aleks

Alex, the directory linked above was never part of this site. It was a sponsor at the time and replaced the older directory that was part of the site. I linked it only to have something available. It isn't a problem to unlink it - it's on it's own server elsewhere with it's own URL. It's privately owned.

The one linked now must not be maintained as I’ve submitted a couple of times with no response.

All for a “new” one.

For those that would like to be on it - just send an email to rodmap@northforkcomposites.com (a few have already)

Thank You,
Aleks
