distance fly casting rods

Do competitors in distance fly casting buy ready-made rods or do they have them custom built? If they have rods custom built I would appreciate hearing what components they prefer and any special construction methods they employ.

They use both custom and factory. It depends upon the competition rules. Some competitions require contestants use the same rod, others, casters choice within specifications.

This question would best be answered by competition casters.

I know only one distance fly casting champion and I know very little how he constructs his rods. I will offer what I remember from several years ago.

His rods are multiple piece.

He builds using the spine. But I do not remember how. and would not be able to tell you if the spines are all lined up or if they rotate 180 degrees.

He and others find the performance to be enhanced when the rods are built taking the spine into account.
