So I picked up 6 rods from Bryan today, I live in Palm Beach and was able to see how me makes them and he walked me through everything. Very impressive. I rods are are amazing, I saw a lot of your guys orders in there (including the pink rod for vday, its looking good)
I went with his basic colors that he wraps with because I like the colors and I couldn't wait to use the new rods.
He takes a ton of pride in what he does and it shows in his work and the way he explains everything.
For me it was supporting someone local that is a good guy and makes a great product.
I will let you know what I think of them on the water, I would highly recommend using Bryan, especially if you want something custom made. I have him making me something really nice for me two custom rods for my Stellas.
Down the road I think I will have him make a pink and black rod for my wife. The pink looks really good. Especially for a lady in the family that likes to fish.
I can tell you one thing also his website pictures give his rods zero justice and he is working on improving that.
If anyone has any questions let me know.
I will post pictures later of the rods with the reels.
