A few rods on the go..... The good, a custom Sage Float Rod donation build with the proceeds of the raffle going to the LHFC, to support their hatchery program. http://www.lakehuronfishingclub.com/ The bad, a rod that after several days of fussing with the wood components of the fore grip I've decided to scrap it and start again.
Hey OFC, It's been a while! I'm still reading the forums, but haven't been posting too much. I have however been busy adding to my already ridiculous collection of custom rods, as well as turning out a few here and there for others. It might take a while, but I'm going to start uploading pictures to this thread of the last 5 or 6 builds. If there's interest I'll keep posting! It would be great if any other builders out there wanted to share some pictures & stories as well, so feel free to chime in. First up: Blank: Batson Enterprises RX7 Switch 10'6" 8wt Guides: ATC Titanium frame w/Zirconium Ring Accent Wood: Custom Stabilized & Turned Birdseye Maple Hardware: Batson 8.5 Shiny Gunsmoke The wood came out the stabilizer looking like this: After some convincing, it turned into this: And the finished product... On deck is a 9', 9wt, electric blue theme Atlantic Salmon stick for a fishing buddy! Cheers, Braden
