  1. Does anyone have any experience in making a rod on a 3D printer? If so what all materials did you use? Pros and cons?
  2. Ive been doing the MudHole wholesale program for a while now and I understand the way it works is that they purchase blanks and rod building materials from certain manufacturers like St. Croix, Fuji, Pac Bay, etc. and then offer them to rod builders at a "wholesale" price. How would one go about cutting them out of the equation and purchasing straight from the manufacturer in an attempt to save money? Do you have to become a dealer? Order in bulk? I've been to Fujis website and they just send you to a dealer to purchase from. Looking to buy blanks, guides, thread, reel seats, handles, and so on...

  6. Trying the Mud Hole DIY kit to build some rods and am having trouble finding the spine. I even bought a spine finder which I can't seem to get to work. I do like they say and I bend the rod and rotate it with the other hand and wait for it to jump into place, but I guess what gets me is that it seems to do that on both sides. Are they both the spine? Should I be looking for something specific? When using the spine finder I bend the rod down and it wont rotate the ball bearings very well to where I'd say Ah Hah! Any help would be much appreciated. Here is the MudHole DIY video for finding a spine.
