This month’s PAYCHECK Sponsor Spotlite features Tom’s Custom Rods and Repair.
Many of our PAYCHECK members are familiar with Tom’s Custom Rods as he has repaired hundreds of rods for our angler’s the past few years.
Tom Wewerka has been bass fishing for over 40 years, and every time he purchased a rod he realized that generally speaking they weren’t built properly. Either the guide placement was incorrect or wrapped poorly and the spline was often misaligned.
A few years ago Tom began his mission to build a better mousetrap, or in this case, a better fishing rod. Using only the highest quality materials on the market , Tom has perfected his craft as he creates some of the most beautiful, functional, and effective fishing rods you’ll find anywhere.
Tom has several tournament pro’s using his rods along with weekend fishermen and women. He also hand-crafts rods made especially for women and also children.
When a customer makes their initial call to Tom he personally reviews the specifications, materials, and design with them prior to beginning the build. Tom is a perfectionist when it comes to detail so rest assured you are purchasing a rod built to the highest standards.
Tom’s specialty is “theme rods” Tom will take the colors and insignia of your favorite sports team, military affiliation, cartoon, etc and incorporate that information into the design of the rod. Just take a look at the “Gallery” on his website, www.tomscustomrods.com and see for yourself. He will also personalize your rod with your name or that of a friend or relative.
While handcrafting custom rods is his specialty, Tom also spends a lot of time repairing rods. he doesn’t just replace broken guides with a generic one that might be oversized. Instead he uses the exact same guide from the manufacturer. But his repair service doesn’t end there.
Tom’s Custom Rods and Repair can also replace your butt handle, reel seat, repair a broken blank, shorten a grip, and perform just about any other magic that would make Cris Angel envious.
Tom now uses the Microwave Guide System on his one rods, designed by the late Bass Professor, Doug Hannon. He keeps up with all of the latest innovative and technological advances within the industry in order to make your fishing weaponry the best on the market.
Be sure to visit Tom’s website, www.tomscustomrods.com which is maintained by his son, Mike Wewerka. You can also follow Tom’s on Twitter and Facebook.
If you aren’t sure who is using Tom’s Custom Rods in our Paycheck tournaments, you might want to begin by looking at the top of the leader board for the name, Dan Kardash.
Dan has banked a lot of money fishing Tom’s Custom Rods in PAYCHECK and other tournaments. Dan is especially proud of his Tom’s Frog Rod, but chances are you won’t see it laying on the deck of his boat after weigh-in. I mean, a guys has to keep some secrets to himself! Just look at Dan’s track record and it makes perfect sense to visit Tom and order a couple for yourself.
