In a series of reviews written to educate you surrounding an innovative product line from Kevin Roberts and KND Custom Tackle comes the first feature piece: The Rod Butler.

When I first met Kevin Roberts, owner/founder of KND Custom Tackle Co., I asked him what type of stuff KND made……he replied “I make just about anything my friends need.” He just summed up his porfolio in a nut shell with that statement.
