I know rod of ages should be bought early to maximize it's effectiveness, but I have been rushing Rylai's for it's passive. singed is really hard to kill but when he hits level 6 and has rylais, that's when he becomes unkillable. I find that the sustain and harass rylais gives is more useful than the early start to Rod of ages. once i have Rylais I just snowball from there, getting rod of ages, then blackfire.
However, I suppose it's all what you're most comfortable with. I guess i'm too used to having rylais early, when i do start RoA, I find myself dying or getting pushed back.
on an unrelated note, with a lot of champs i don't even start boots. the extra speed is nice, but for 350 you can get some items that can help secure that first blood. I can't recall how many times i won a level 1 team fight with minimal health because i had armor and potions instead of speed.
