Why Buy a Custom Designed Rod?
If you only fish once a year with your uncle Bill and your cousin Harry, and the daily catch of empty beer cans far exceeds the number of fish caught, custom designed rods might not be your thing. But if you’re someone who has had a passion for fishing since your first steps, puts in the time to learn your local waters, and, if time and budget allow, travels to explore new fishing grounds, a custom designed rod is worth every penny!
A “custom designed” rod is crafted to the mechanics of your cast, the size of your grip and the kind of fish you will be catching, unlike a “custom built” rod that can be just as much a production job as anything turned out by a major rod manufacturer. Ty's designs are decorated to your specification; and, as the final badge of its unique status, it has your name on it. You’ll be proud when your buddies see it resting in the rod holder!
Beyond the sense of accomplishment that goes with knowing you’re a dedicated enough fisherman to own custom designed equipment, you’ll discover that your rod functions better than any rod you bought in a store. Depending on the design of the rod and the type of fishing you do, you may find a custom designed rod results in longer casting, less hand fatigue with long use, greater sensitivity to the bite, and the aesthetic pleasure of a beautiful piece of equipment.
A Custom Rod Makes a Great Gift!
Many people have discovered that a custom-designed rod makes a great gift to honor a retiring fisherman or to give a relative or friend on a special birthday. Tingley Custom Rods will furnish a gift certificate that can be presented to the lucky fisherman and then will work with the recipient on the design of the rod once the gift has been presented.
