My goal on this rod was to get everything to flow together without one specific component overloading the others.
Here are the build specifics:
Blank: St. Croix 11' 5 weight switch rod
Seat: Struble dark Nickel Silver U-24.
Seat insert and winding check: Stablized Black Ash Burl.
Wraps: Garnet with no CP
Trim wraps: Metallic Pewter.
Handle: Natural, Copano, Laguna, with Burnt Burl cork for the accents.
Extras: Inset the butt cap into the end of the handle, turned a winding check out of the Black Ash Burl, three turn alternating wraps, with single turn trim wraps and as is standard for all my graphite rods... alignment dots.
Until next time my friends,
