    Never fished one but the Phenix rods/blanks are becoming quite popular. Posts pic.s of your build.

    I love phenix blanks I have a 9ft bucktail rod and an 8_6ft live bait rod and both are phenix. Ive never had an issue with them whatsoever. I use all fuji guides on all the rods that I have made.

    This one is gonna be all black and will have a black sustain on in with the lime green suffix 832 so it should look sick.

    for a 3000 size reel a 30 is too big. if you are thinking you're using a 30 because of the height, then use the "h" instead of the "j".
    you are using braid, braid doesnt have memory like mono does and the coils coming out from the spool can be controlled by the stripper ASAP.

    I agree. On my 2000 I run use a 20 butt guide to a size 12. Then size 5 fly guides from there to the tip. I am using 10lb Jerry Brown. You want roughly the butt guide to be half the diameter of you spool.

    Is that the cheapest place to buy parts? I cant get over how expensive guides are now days. It is nothing to build a rod and have $60-$70 bucks in guides. To me that is just ridiculous. I have put off an order from Mudhole for a month because every time I price out a set of guides I wanted it was $60 and it was hialoy not even SICs.
    And why is something as basic as shrink tubing such a rip off? Just because it has "X" pattern in it? They are just blistering people on shrink tubing.

    Mudhole has an excellent selection and guys like Todd have expertise that's hard to beat. Having said that, their prices and shipping cost tend to be a bit higher. It's not terrible for a one or two rod builder, but if you are going to be doing more you'll want to shop around.

    I do almost all of my component online ordering from Utmost.

    For X Flock shrink tubing, check Acid Rod or even online auction.
