Or is it better/cheaper/easier to buy one pre-made?

Seriously depending on the application I would consider a boomless nossle. If your doing foodplots and stuff running through the woods a boom will reach out and catch all kind of stuff. I think a prefer a traditional boom for my yard.

Just my way of saying I like a lot of my stuff custom made. If you have any kind of tools you can make one pretty easy. A welder is a plus, but you could get by without it. All you really need is a piece of pipe,hose,tips,filters and the clamps.

Factory reconditioned from Moultrie for $79.99, of course you'll have to pay the UPS freight.

One thing I need to add though, the hand held nozzle is cheap plastic and not worth fooling with. I went to the feed store and got a good hand nozzle to use with it. The tank and sprayer don't look like they were ever used and works fine. I bought one at $99.99 a few months ago to go with a directional fish feeder special they had on at the time. You had to buy $100 of something else to get the $400 feeder for $100 and the sprayer was one of the extra things I bought.

I've actually got an older sprayer and was just gonna add a boom to it. How do you like the boomless sprayer?

So far I've just used the hand nozzle to spray cogangrass. It worked great for that. I plan on using the boomless next spring on my clover fields to kill out the spring grass growth. My only reservation is that this model is a 10' width and is probably limited due to it's gallons per minute rating. You may not need as much pressure if you use a boom as compared to a boomless that has to spray further. There's some guys that post in the wildlife habitat forum that know their stuff about spraying and such, you may want to ask them.
