I built out one of the new Ben's of Holland 5pc uni S glass blanks. What a fantastic pack rod. I have blanks in stock for custom builds and a couple left if you want to build your own! See the blanks here - https://www.graywolfrods.com/for-sale

Waiting for delivery of a black cap & ring. Rod weight 1.5oz , It feels like a sweet #2/3 to me. Tempted on the 5 piece but when you have 10,000 rods........,

Shane - is there anything you are willing to share on your multi color wraps near the grip on those rods above? the multi colors and the way you've put them all together makes it look like its on fire - such an incredible look. For what its worth I consider your wraps the gold standard of any rod builder going these days.

Thanks so much. I'm not sure what you would like me to share? Basically the wraps are a blend of nylon and silk thread that I color lock before adding finish.
