    Anyone out there want to build me a 9' 5wt. 4pc. Dan craft FT. I would love to do it myself, but just don't have time and ice off is just around the corner up here in BC.

    Thanks

    I'll be building a Dan Craft 9'6" 6wt 4pc. Sig V or the 5wt Sig V within the next couple weeks. This winter I built a 9' 7wt. 4 pc FT (907-4 FT). Are you building the Sig V or FT? The 7wt. FT is a really fast powerful rod and could throw a 10 weight line without breaking a sweat.

    My favorite rod. So good that I have two. Both are built up with SF ceramics.

    I might be willing to do it, but it would only be my second build. If you are interested pm me.

    I can build it for you. I have built many rods--several on Dan Craft blanks. I'd be happy to email photos of some of my rods. Email me at jatoynbee@hotmail.com to talk specifics.

    Thanks,

    Hey Guys

    Thanks for all the interest. My local shop owner has talked me into building the rod myself with him overseeing the build. Who knows, I might get into this building your own thing. It sounds like it can get addicting.
