Hey guys, I'm curious what the proper way to order these reel seats are, they come in half mm sizes. Do I order the size closest to where the front seat measures on the blank and ream the back seat till it fits, or do I order the size to the rear size and make small arbors with tape till they are snug and have little gaps (that will be covered by checks I guess)

So I'm looking to try a cross wrap design, but im a little confused (or maybe just slow) is the intersection spacing the rod diameter or half the circumference. Some insight on how u guys lay one out would really help me out. Thanks Jody

I've just started building rod so this probably won't be an issue for a while, but I was wondering if it was legal for me to build rods from the suppliers online (mudhole, Fitbit, ect) and put my "brand" on it, or will this be infrequent? Some guys I work with think I need to jump on a brand name and put them on the rods I make.

Thank u guys, another question, I've never done anything with fly rods so rod "weight" is French to me. Is there a clear comparison to "power"?

Hi guys , first time poster. I've been looking on here for a while to get tips and tricks. Today I'm looking for a pretty particular application. I have someone looking for me to build a crappie dipping rod, he wants it to be around 12 foot and medium-light action. The only things I'm finding are "steelhead" blanks and are expensive... any suggestions for a cheaper blank?
