Any angler serious about catching fish and who routinely invests hard-earned money (entry fees, travel expenses, maintenance, tackle, equipment, etc.) cannot afford to purchase All Thread Rod that are anything but the best. After all, when you are on the water, executing everything within your power to fill the live well, then it is paramount to take advantage of any opportunity available (i.e., control what you can).
Smaller and fewer numbers of guides are often used to save a few cents. A two-cent savings adds up over a production run. Others use components that may look like their name-brand counterparts, but are of considerably less quality.
Production All Thread Rod are typically designed and made for the average person with average skills and are manufactured using average components, all of which will provide reasonable performance. However, those who demand more from their fishing arsenal turn to custom rod builders to acquire that specific tool they require for the style of fishing they prefer and the performance they expect.
Custom builders provide competitive cost advantages by building their All Thread Rod “one at a time,” rendering obsolete the need for exhaustive inventory, labor costs, and material waste. This permits excess capital for the use of top quality components and materials. Additionally, custom builders routinely do not require capital investment and expenditure for overhead business expenses such as: advertising, showrooms, galleries, etc.
If they were the same, the line will touch at the same points and the twist (or hopefully, lack of twist) would be equivalent as well. Now cast.
Distance and accuracy should be equivalent, however, in every case, this will never happen with an “off-the-shelf” Stainless Steel Threaded Rod because they are manufactured using guide placements in the exact same spot of every blank being constructed (i.e., they are not made of homogenous or equivalent materials and will never be the same).
