    I recently acquired a few RPL blanks. I have 4 blanks and would like two built for me and would be willing to give the builder the other two for building mine. Now I'm not sure how much building a rod costs as far as components and time, so does this sound like a fair trade to anyone? Am I totally off the mark? Not looking for anything fancy, just a couple fishable rods.

    I would be interested in this trade. Can you please PM me and we can discuss this further. I am in Olympia so fairly close to you. I am an Alaska guide as well as build rods, so I always build a rod with a purpose, I have built saltwater (hardware) rods, as well as fly rods.
