I use the pac bay. Bought it from the mudhole. I know one of my friends just started by cutting "V"s in wooden blocks and lining it with felt and used a motor from an old sewing machine. Thing I like about the pac bay is when doing long underwraps the thread carriage automatically follows along the length of the wrap thereby saving time and making that portion a lot easier. I saw some knock off versions on ebay but nothing nearly as good and for the few extra $$ I went with the better setup

I agree, however if you are willing to be patient and keep your first try simple, then you may want to start with a wooden V notch system. Once you get comfortable with more challenging stuff like spine finding, reel seat setting, and guide placement you'll have more confidence. None of that is particularly difficult coincidently.

Fiberglass surf blanks are fun and easy to work with. I find fresh water rods with single foot guides more difficult and tedious.
