About BadBoy Custom Rods
Since starting BadBoy Custom Rods, I have built custom fishing rods for saltwater and freshwater, for people around the country. Some of my specialty rods include stand up tuna rods, surf rods, spin and cast, plugging/jigging rods, stand up spinning rods, saltwater fly rods, deep drop rods and a variety of bottom fishing rods including many "species specific" rods. Based in Richwood Texas, I have always had an excellent opportunity to test new cutting edge custom rod technologies in my own fishing along the coast from Brownsville Texas to Venice Louisiana.

No matter what fishing you do, I can build you a custom rod of heirloom quality that you will be proud to fish with when you hit the water. In this day and age of "not enough time", it is critical to make the most of the sacred fishing time we all have, and nothing (shy of a great fish!) can maximize your fishing pleasure like a finely crafted custom rod. If you know what you want, great! Call me up and we will work together to make sure you get what you want. If you have any questions, please call or email me (contact information below) and I will help you to plan your BadBoy custom fishing rod.

Thank you very much for visiting my website... please take a look around at some of the custom rods I have built, and the informational pages on choosing a custom rod.

Custom Built Fishing Rods are unique. If you have arrived at my site, then you have been searching for a better fishing rod. Custom built fishing rods give you the ability to handcraft a rod that fits a specific application. Whether it is a fishing rod for bass, redfish or trout fishing...casting, spinning, trolling, off shore, surf or fly fishing, I can custom build a fishing rod to fulfill your needs.

As a custom rod builder, I take great pride in my craft. I have seen many changes in the way fishing rods are constructed and in the quality of materials. Blanks are lighter, smaller in diameter, stronger and more sensitive than ever before, thanks to improvements in graphite. Even fiberglass blanks have been refined to where they are much less cumbersome to use all day. Methods of building rods have changed due to the efforts of many individuals. What has made custom rod building into the craft that it is today, is the willingness of rod builders to share their knowledge in different formats. There are numerous methods of rod construction and even though I may have my preferences, as a "Custom Rod Builder", I remain open minded and will build your rod, the way YOU want it. I use only the finest quality rod blanks, components and finishes. It is my desire to build a fishing rod that fits your specific application. I encourage you to visit with me and discuss what you want your next fishing rod to do for you. I guarantee your satisfaction or your money will be refunded within 30 days of delivery.

Since each custom rod we craft is unique and different, we have no stated price list. The cost of the rod reflects the cost of the rod blank, the components selected to your specifications, and the cost of any additional aesthetics.

A BadBoy Custom Rod will start at about $200. We can a provide a firm quote before beginning your rod and ask for a 50% deposit, balance due upon completion. We also offer repair service.
