Just Picked up my Nelson Custom swim bait rod yesterday. Built on the Phoenix Black Diamond Hydrid 838 for Deps 250's.It's a work of art. Nelson is crazy detail oriented, and was stressed over ever detail of this rod making sure I loved the final product. We talked several times per week throughout the process. I had a great experience. If you are looking for a Custom build, he makes a great rod, and is an even better guy to work with.
