    Hey all, I am in the market for a complete kit for building rods. I am looking to build spey rods in particular, if that makes any difference at all. So what would you recomend to a guy with 200 or so to blow on a kit? I have seen one on the anglers workshop website, looks legit, but who knows.......

    Oh, and if you personally have an outfit that you want to get rid of, I would be interested in that as well.

    I bought the FlexCoat Business Starter Kit by FlexCoat. It comes with everything you need to build many rods and includes the book and video and rod turner. You won't be disappointed and the customer service is awsome. Total cost is around $170

    No man, it,s just the one I bought and can vouch for. I also contacted them when deciding and they did not try to sell me on it. I have used it to build one rod so far and have plenty of supplies for atleast eight more so, for the price I thought is was a bargain. I also did not purchase from them directly, I got it from a dealer. Good kit for the money. I am sure there are other kits, and by all means check around. Look locally, check internet or make your own. Just advising from personal experience. Not trying to promote
