Many of the decisions in custom rod building are about tailoring the rod's components for performance. Beyond basic components, however, many options exist to add personal touches to your rod. Decals, inlays, decorative wraps, and more can transform your rod into a one-of-a-kind creation with a truly professional look.
Whether it's the name and logo of your rod's target species, the flag of your home state, or even your favorite college team, there are plenty of decal options to customize your build. At mudhole.com you can choose from a selection of decals including over 50 types of freshwater and saltwater gamefish as well as logos of popular college teams from the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big 10, CUSA, MAC, MWC, Pac 10, SEC, WAC, and independent schools. You can also add text decals in a variety of fonts. Custom text decals are a great way to personalize your fishing rod. Add your name, favorite species, contact information in case your rod is lost, your company information, or any text you want.
Also add some personality and pop into your next rod building project by using wraps, inlays and trim bands. Mudhole carries many different types to choose from, including RodSkinz, snake skins, abalone shell, marbling styles, patterns, colors, and more. These are cost-effective decorative touches, and simple to install.
RodSkinz allow you to express your tastes, styles, or even wild side by wrapping your rod in a custom print of your choice. They're easy to install and don't require expertise or special tools. RodSkinz are designed with high-res imagery and printed on premium adhesive-backed cast vinyl, then sealed with a high-gloss laminate for easy installation. The result is a visually stunning and dynamic look. And if your rod blank is scuffed or scratched, RodSkinz are a great way to conceal damage and make it look as good as new.
Adding abalone to any custom fishing rod instantly upgrades its final look with a sharp and professional decoration. Abalone is easy to work with and looks incredible on the water.
Many other options are available to personalize your custom rod. Rod building has many rewards. In the end, you'll have a one-of-a-kind creation that will impress in performance, design, and beauty.
