Your Panfish Rod Kit Contains:

CRB Color Series Graphite Rod Blank

The CRB Color Series launches all-new rod blanks engineered with an enhanced variety of actions, powers, lengths, and 12 amazing colors. Between performance and appearance, these high-strength yet lightweight blanks were engineered to provide the custom rod builder the greatest variety of choices with CRB’s legendary value! The rod blank also comes with a 1-Year Limited Warranty.

Rod Handle & Components

This kit includes your choice of traditional Cork or durable (and easy to work with) EVA foam handle in either pistol-style or split-grip layouts. The CRB deluxe graphite reel seat is designed for maximum comfort and castability - plus, it's provided in either standard graphite or your choice of 12 custom colors - matched exactly to your rod blank. A set of perfectly fitted and sized Titanium Oxide guides span the length of your rod, and the whole package is finished with fitted winding checks. All of these parts were sized to perfectly match and fit the CRB IS561L rod blank dimensions.

CRB Hand Wrapper

The CRB Hand Wrapper features a dual spool tensioner and a tension rod which allows for easy reversing while building. Thread then runs to the slider which can move seamlessly along the 10" wrapping base. The wrapper also features adjustable stands mounted to the base along with a third stand for supporting the butt or tip. Finally, the hand wrapper incorporates interchangeable step by step instruction cards displaying a range of basic wrapping and advanced decorative techniques, and the basic wrapping Step by Step card is included.

CRB Rod Dryer

The CRB Rod Dryer offers rod builders a durable, easy to use drying unit that is perfect for novice and professionals, at a price point unheard of in the industry without sacrificing functionality. This system features a 9 RPM 110V Drying motor with 6' cord, form fitting chuck, and one Dryer Support Stand.

ProWrap Rod Winding Thread

A generous amount of ProWrap thread has been included in this kit. There are 3 spools of Size D ColorFast Nylon guide wrapping thread (Blue, Green and Red), along with 2 spools of size A Metallic Winding thread (Silver and Gold) for decorative trim wraps on your guides.

ProKöte & ProPaste Epoxy

This kit includes all the supplies you need to build and fish your dream rod. For the handles and reel seat, we included a 2 ounce ProPaste kit which is a high strength rod building paste adhesive. To make sure your guide wraps stay secure and protected from UV damage, we have also included a 24 ml. ProKote kit, which is one of the best rod building thread finishes on the market.

Supplies & Tools

Our professional rod builders have selected all the tools you will need to build your fishing rod. The tool set in this kit includes a pack of razor blades, measuring tape (for guide placement), mixing cups, brushes and mixing sticks (for the ProKote & ProPaste), a thread cutter, burnishing tool, thread pick, and 5 sizes of the CRB Tape Reamer (for the EVA handle should you need it).

Even More Supplies

We are not done yet; we have also included (2) sizes of masking tape (to make your reel seat arbor & for temporary guide placements), a china marker (for marking the rod blank spine and guide placements), an alcohol burner (to make your ProKote shine), as well as a Rod Building book & DVD!
