Another rod build

While wrapping a few rods for some of our fellow OFFers, I figured why not a swimbait rod for me. I ended up painting a XMG blank pearl white and decided to go with a wrap less look. Wrapping pearl thread on the pearl blank turned out to be a pretty cool combo, the wraps look invisible.

TR, not as nice as the monster I brought down last week. I wanted something more subtle than those 5 lb throwing machines :lol:

Thanks for the words, it was my pleasure building the rods. Now lets see who catches the first fish on the new rods.

thats sweet dude what are the technical stats, like rod rating line rating weight rating etc... length? if you make one for really big baits make sure to make it have a really long handle atleast past your elbow by a few inches from the reel seat in your palm, that is sweet though dude! great job!
