Any idea what kind of budget you are looking at?
A Dobyns, Gloomis, or Kistler rod may be better for your budget and still getting high quality rods.
If your budget lets you definitely look into a LSCR.

Look at Dobyns Sierra series and for cranks look at their mislabeled glass rods. Better hurry on the mislabeled rods, they are going fast.
Can't beat these 2 options for that price.

Dylan, LS is a great rod builder no doubt, but I was wondering if you had ever considered making your own custom rods???

There are places where you can sign up and pay a nominal fee and build your own rod while learning how to do it. This is a great way to get started.

Does Lee possibly have a website where you can look at options?

There is no doubt that if you're looking for a custom rod, you need to be talking with Lee Smith.

You can pick out components that you like at Get Bit Outdoors but, you need to have a consult or two with Lee. He'll be able to advise you based on your wants, needs, and fishin' style. His builds aren't just fancy rods, they're precision tools custom made for your hands.
