Warranty Info
Backcountry Sportsmen is not responsible in any way for blank manufacturer's warranties.  These matters will be the sole responsibility of the customer and the party offering the warranty.  (Serial numbers will be included with finished rod)  Should a blank replacement be necessary, blank replacements cover the blank only and do not include cost of  rebuilding of the broken section or rod.


General Pricing

Basic pricing structure is: Components + Shop supplies & labor.

A typical inshore 8-15# rod built with quality components along with art will run approx. $200.  Of course custom is just that: higher quality guides, blanks etc., will make the price go up from there.  We can also scale down to a very basic color scheme with your name added for much less. That's the great thing about custom rods, you can pick out your own components made to order!  If you would like a price quote, copy and paste the information below into an email with your preferences.   If your not sure or would like to leave the choice up to us, please include that in your answers also.  For blanks we typically default to the MHX brand due to their awesome warranty and great quality.  We also default to Fuji or American Tackle guides.
