As Steffen Brothers has remained a small family business, most orders for blanks and rods require us to actually build the blank/rod after your order has been placed. This typically takes 2-3 months from order to delivery.
A deposit is required to place an order. Deposits are $250/finished rod and $100/blank. Upon receipt of the deposit you will be contacted and work will begin on your order.
Upon completion of your rod/blank we will contact you to request the balance due before shipping. Should you decide upon a different rod/blank after your order has been placed, just let us know and we will make the change though it may increase the wait time.
If you decide to cancel your order at any time your full deposit will be returned immediately.
Steffen Brothers ships using FedEx ground. We have found FedEx to be the best when it comes to tracking, speed of delivery and reduced potential for damage during shipping.
The fee for shipping within the continental United States is a flat $25.00. Shipping outside the Continental United States will be based on your provided address and the actual FedEx estimated cost. In rare instances other shipping options may be available.
