    Default More to add to the anticipation

    Well, I'm done just a couple of touch ups and it will be ready to pack and mail out with the taxes....here are some pics...a fun build.

    I used a fenwick style cork grip and black aluminum reel down locking reel seat


    I used black metallic thread for the wraps...and 3 lite coats of flex coat lite for the finish


    The signature wrap...end of hook keeper wrap is roughly 12 inches and the sig wrap is marked at a fun 16 inches


    I used a spigot ferrule
