This is the first rod I have built on a Bob Meiser blank and I must say top shelf quality all the way around. It might be my first Meiser, but if definitely won't be the last. Specially since when I ordered Joel's blank I ordered one for my self ;-)
Joel is locale so we could see first hand what we had and design the build on site. Joel and KK designed the aft handle and I carried it over to the fore handle. Kept the wraps simple with Green wraps with white trim. Five different types of cork make up the handles. Used Lemke Titanium seat hardware and turned a stabilized Spalted Big Leaf Maple Burl seat insert. Rod feels great in the hand. Can't wait to get to my own build. Enjoy the pictures.
Until next time my friends,
