Who makes custom reels?

Recommended Posts

Maybe a better question is, who customizes reels?   I'm thinking of putting together a high-end outfit with a custom made rod and reel.  I know about rods, but the reel part is stumping me.

Check with the Reel Mechanic on this site.

He is a fountain of knowledge and I am sure he can help you or give you some suggestions to consider.

There were a couple of outfits on the left coast doing custom paint jobs on fishing reels. I for the life of me cannot find their bookmark. Robert might know who I speak of.

If your looking for custom machine work on fishing reels, then I have no idea.  

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!!

Rowland:  There is a Basser out in Texas that has tuned/customized some reels for me.  He is excellent and may either customize your own reel or he may have one or two of his own he will sell you.  He can be trusted and works quickly if needed.

PM me if you want his personal info.

My favorite type of bass fishing is hitting the lilypads with toads and frogs.  So I want something suitable for that.

I was thinking a 7 1/2 or 8 ft heavy/fast.  I have a couple of craftsmen in mind for a rod.  

The reel is stumping me.  I've been searching the internet for reel customizers, or custom reels, and I can't find much.  I know I'm going to want a low-profile, and regardless of brand I want it color-coordinated with the rod.   I'm not quite sure what I'm going to want beyond that and figured I would consult the person customizing it for suggestions.  

I just want something unique.  And this isn't something I'm going to do anytime real soon.  I just bought a new outboard and my fishing budget is busted for quite some time.

Dude, it 's easier to customize the rod to color coordinate the reel than to do it all the way around.

Raul I've never heard of that. It will be cool.

If you are going to have a custom built rod all you have to ask to the builder is to paint the blank or certain parts of it.
