I am thinking about trying to build my own surf rod. I am looking at a rod on mudhole. It's by American tackle. Model MHSK16. It's 10' 15 - 30 lb line and 1-5 ounce weight. It seems perfect for throwing metal on the beach, which is what I want it for. Does anyone have experience with this company? I'm looking for any information about this company and any information about building rods in general. What other materials will I need if I buy this rod kit? Any particular tools or anything else I need to know? Thank you for your time.
