Is custom rod far superior to a factory made rod?? I own a Breakaway 11'9" spinning rod and Lamiglass 10' spinning rod. I want a rod that cast well and catch fish. What is the price range and who makes the best rod??? regardless of price. I use unitech cast and can cast upto 400'. but it seems like I can cast as far or further with my 13' daiwa eliminator than the breakaway?? any suggestion.
