I am getting my first custom salt rod built. Pretty excited about it. I've had only one other custom rod built and that was a freshwater bass jig rod a good number of years ago. This rod is an Edge 7'10 #80 rod. Wanted to ask about the Alps guide listed on the build sheet. It's listed as Batson XTCHXNZG from sizes 10 through 25. I looked it up on the Alps site and couldn't find this exact guide. Knowing myself, I'm probably missing something. Ha. Wondering if one of you could maybe send or post the link to this guide. Hmm, so, I think I have a good idea of how I want to have this rod built. Meeting with a local builder to get this done soon. Just wondering if any of you guys would want to suggest me thinking about anything that I might want to add to the build or get done from a performance standpoint? Going with all Alps components on this rod. It is going to be a very versatile rod and I am thinking I will use it for moving baits like poppers, stickbaits, some casting jigs and sardines. Couple of thoughts I've had. Possibly adding a trigger seat. I really like those coming from a freshwater swimbait background. Casting heavy baits repeatedly often feels a lot better with a trigger seat. I'm just not entirely sure it's the right way to go with this rod. What about adding a hook keeper. Sometimes I really like having one, so that I can hook up a big bait to the rod quickly and so that I don't have to hook it up on the reel and end up possibly nicking the line or scratching the reel badly. Appreciate any other thoughts you might have. This is going to be a fantastic rod and I want to get it built right.
