Good Friend Brian has recently aquired a high end job...
Rumor has it, the rod maybe used in some national & international competitions...
Here's his plan to begin...and you can bet we'll be following with great interest on a regular basis...
I plan on taking several photo's of all my builds from here on out.
1) raw materials
2) assembly of cork/handle
3) turning of cork
4) mounting handle to blank
5) installation of winding check
6) buttwrap & hook keeper
7) tying on guides & tiptop
8) applying finish
Something along those lines is my plan at the moment...
The rod is going to be a Rainshadow IF1005 (10' 2pc 5wt Med/Fast 1.7oz)
He wants a 9" Western style grip on it with the some trim bands marking 7-7/8". I'm going to cut an aluminum trimband and put it between two 1/8" pieces of burnt cork. He's getting TiChrome hardware, single foot guides, Batson RA8 reel seat with a Tahitian Jadewood insert in it - to match the Olympic Green blank.Wraps will be dark brown and matte silver metallic. For labels he wants Way Wicked Rods and his name... nothing else
You can bet we're very interested in the making of the rod...stay tuned for more updates...
