This event has it all! The camraderie of a small event, but all the selection and prices of a large
one! It's the ONLY rod building event I now attend each year. Keep it up!
and I attended for the first time in 2009 and again in 2010. It was a great time and we are going to make it a yearly vacation
event for us. Just a really huge value all the way around. Way more than just a "show."
a lot of fun. Saved some money on blanks and stuff and enjoyed talking with all the nice people from the manufacturers to
the rod builders. Very friendly bunch.
Wow! What an experience this has been. Tom put on
one heck of an Expo - truly a premier event. Our reception here has been terrific! I am happy to say we went home virtually
The Seeker Rod Company would like to take the

The value that you deliver per square foot for
your vendors is just fantastic! It's unsurpassed in this business. I'm happy to say we're in the black, nicely
in the black.

EVERYTHING about the show was great. I can't tell
you how much fun I had. I can honestly say I NEVER thought I'd meet so many people from other countries who share the passion
I have for building rods. Without the ICRBE that would never have been possible. Thank you.
Just the best rod building event on the planet.
Nothing else comes close. My wife and I drove almost 2500 miles round trip to attend and let me say that we were not disappointed.
We will do this every year that you put on this spectacular event. Way to go. The most rod building stuff and best educational
seminars ever assembled at any rod building event. We'll be back.
Thanks for another FANTASTIC show! It was a priviledge
to be among the rod building elite and to be able to absorb all these new ideas. Whatever you've been doing, keep doing it
and let me know how Pacific Bay can help.
CEO Pacific Bay International
To say I was shocked at the size of this event
would be an understatement. I've been to other rod building events over the years and this one just beats the stuffing out
of all the rest. No wonder guys fly in from all over the world to attend this event. Well done!
I've been to other rod building events but this
one blew me away! The educational seminars were fantastic and the amount of product was beyond belief. Count me in for next
I figured up the savings I made on rod blanks
and other stuff at the show and find that it easily paid for my driving and lodging expenses. Plus I got to attend all the
educational seminars as well. Love the show, love the DEALS!
A rod builder can learn more in one weekend at
this Expo than in a decade out on their own. The educational seminars are truly top notch.
I wanted to chime in about the good time I had.
My first (Expo) event and I enjoyed every minute of it! Coming from Texas, it was a 2,200 mile round trip which I would do
We attended the expo with our son, Jeremy, who
got into rod building about 2 years ago. When I first saw what was being offered and where it was being held I told him an
event like this can't be done for the price that is being charged. You should be paying hundreds of dollars to sit under this
type of instruction, a reception, and all the other free info being offered.
We were blown away by the friendliness of everyone
and the professionalism of the overall event. And, I got to meet Gary Loomis, what a treat. Thanks again for what you do,
you will never know how many lives you are touching by your generous spirit.
