My review of my first rod from DVT

Recommended Posts

I'd like to start off by saying that I'm a pain in the ass and thank Mike for so graciously catering to that pain in the assness. I received my first rod order from Mike today, and as an impatient man I couldn't wait to take it out on the water immediately. I went out and only caught a small dink before the lake closed(sun up to sun down lake unfortunately is the only solid producer within 20 minute driver after work today).

The rod's I've experienced before always were solid, as far as buying Loomis, St Croix, Kistler and the other brands I used to use years ago. The rod I purchased from Mike was absolutely air light, sensitive to the point that I could of probably felt single blades of grass had the water not been over run by hydrilla. The alignment was perfect, and the handle length was the best I've ever managed.

This thing looks absolutely beautiful, I'll upload the pictures I took to another site and edit the post with them later since they are all 4mb pictures and downsizing will ruin the quality of the hard work Mike clearly put into this rod. The inscription was phenomenally done and much better than I expected it to be. All in all, I spent approximately 320 dollars on a medium, fast-exfast rod for soft plastics and ned rigs that did it phenomenally. With the quality of this product, the customer service behind the business, and the thoroughness/attention to detail of Mike if I was going to buy a rod similar to this rod at retail I wouldn't be surprised or felt taken advantage of for a rod in, or above the NRX price range of 550 retail. From this point forward I'll be slowly replacing all of my rods with DVT rods. Thank you Mike for all of your hard work, and quality work. Please, don't hesitate to place an order with this man. You won't be disappointed, I surely was not.

Glad you like the rod. I have 4 customs now and they are blast. From picking the components, to see pics of the build progress, to the final product and finally fishing it is well worth the wait.

I could not agree more, my custom from DVT is also built on an MHX blank and has been outstanding the last year and a half with it.

About time for another one but buying a house negates that right now.

Thanks guys. Things ever settle down here I'll finish my gallery. I'll put pics of this one on my Facebook page. It's a classic black and red to match his reel.
