A fun website that shows the tools used, that also sells rod kits (but not low cost kits).
Probably the value in the website is showing the materials and tools used, and figuring out a substitutes if you’re the type interested in giving it a try yourself. It’s not rocket science to use an old joke, people made their own rods for many years. We probably expect more from the rods we use than they did. But with careful work a decent performing rod made by yourself is doable. It might not be your favorite performer, but maybe a favorite because it was DIY.
