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.

NFC SB 683 X-Ray and SJ762 HM.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these blanks and if yes what are your thoughts/opinions and any thoughts on the best applications for them. I'm especially interested in comments on the SB 683. Thanks in advance.

I picked up a SB683 and SB684. Other than noting the insane light weight (1.17 and 1.45 oz respectively) I haven't done anything with them yet.

Thanks for the reply. Mine just came today and my 683 came in at the exact same weight (1.17 oz). The 762 HM is only 1.65 oz, I probably won't build until winter, but I hope to get some measurements on the action, power... before then and I will post.

683SB X-ray RDA power 226, similar to MB703 Delta. I do actions a little different so no number but moderate fast.

684SB X-ray RDA power 386, similar to MB704IM/704HM, action fast.
