A Dark Carbon rods is less expensive than an equivalent spec custom made model, not due to it being a lesser quality rod, because it isn't, but because dealing with a custom order and all the management of the component supply chain associated with that take a good deal of time. This cost isn't applicable to a Dark Carbon rod so this cost saving is passed straight on to you, fact. Another big cost saving factor is the removal of the fancy very expensive "checker board" weave pattern carbons and replacing it with a plain carbon of the same engineering properties. As the blanks are coated smoke black the fancy weave would be covered up so there is no point in paying for it. Another big saving.
So, no fancy weave and vastly reduced admin time results in the Dark Carbon rods being just as high quality as one of my customs but with a considerable cost reduction.
