Grate starter kit
Reviewer: A viewer from Steamboat Springs, CO US
The book that you get with this kit is excellent the step by step instructions and numerous high quality photos of each step being completed by the author make creating your firs rod a breeze. The bench is well designed and sturdy but the adhesive that is on the back of the felt strips was a bit dried out and did not want to stick but just a small amount of super glue took care of it.
Good value for a first time builder
Reviewer: A viewer from Gilbert, AZ US
I purchased this kit and used it to build my first rod and was glad I did. It came with plenty of supplies and I plan on using it again to build my second rod. As noted in another review, it does not come with an extra wraping stand. Would have been nice to have the additional stand, but I was able to build my rod without it with no problems using just what came in the kit.

The book alone was worth the price. It is a how-to manual that is actually an enjoyable read. This was my first try at rod building, and I am glad I got this kit. It has everything you need to go along with your fly rod kit, and it sure makes life easier. It has a simple thread tensioner, so one less thing to worry about while you are learning a new skill. The bench was not exactly as pictured--it did not include the extra stand. Not a big deal to slap one together, but...
Very helpful for the first time rod builder
Reviewer: A viewer from Colchester, VT US
I bought this kit so I could understand the principles of rod building. The book is very helpful and explains the process in a clear manner. There are many photos to assist the rod builder. The rod building bench is sturdy and helps to keep the rod stable while wrapping. And you get enough supplies to make several rods.
