When production rods are not enough, it's time to go custom. Come share your experiences building and/or ordering a custom rod and tell us if you'll ever go back to off the shelf.

I’ve heard it can take weeks. Has that been the case for you guys? I’m tossing around buying an xray blank but have little patience for waiting.

I generally get the blanks fairly quick. Longest I waited was 10 days. Now the grips on the other hand.... they never showed up after three months. Made em do a full refund

It took a little over three months to get my grips. A few of the handles were uneven, not as carefully made as the CFX version. I've read some people received grips with no flaws.
Blanks arrive on time, sometimes sooner.

That depends on blank popularity, current inventory, and production schedule.
I've heard months if an unpopular blank needs to find its way into production. Early this summer I had a blank take about three weeks. Recently needed to order another and it shipped in a few days. I'm guessing my first order needed to be produced and my second order got pulled from inventory.

I order 2 times and they both took a little over a month for me. Still debating if I want to try out the x-ray series tho

Being they're currently on sale for 50% off for the first 65% for the second, I imagine it will be an even longer than normal wait...
