As I have been planning my first rod build I have read many articles and talked to some very knowledgeable people. One thing that would have helped me a lot (and maybe it exists, but I didn't find it) would be a checklist of all of the materials needed to produce a rod. I think the list should be generic. That said I set forth to create one for myself and perhaps it could be pinned somewhere to help others that may be in the same situation as I am. Rod blank reel seat grip winding check stripper guide(s) line guides tip top wrapping thread (size A) tip top adhesive Rod builders epoxy rod finish hook keeper (optional) fighting butt or reel seat end cap if not provided with reel seat denatured alcohol/95% ethanol nail polish remover small plastic cups 4"x4" pieces of aluminum foil small nylon bristle brushes latex/nitrile gloves straight razor blades coffee filter masking tape sharpie knitting needle or credit card for adjusting thread wraps rod wrapping jig, either purchased or made from wood, cardboard, or styrofoam rod turner either purchased or homemade (optional) plenty of free time and patience So to all of you more experienced rod builders, is there anything that I left off of the list that should be included?
