Thought I'd share some pics of a rod I finished a while ago...
stacked leather grip
Elephant green/white jasper thread
REC Recoil guides
tailored rod sock

Hope you like it
Jan



...btw: Thanks for all the help and encouragement here on the board! You are great!

Cool! I like the texture that thread gives to the blank.

scud dog you're right, green/white Elephant silk without CP and finished with medium build epoxy.
I made some test wraps before and thought 'that's it!'

Thanks guys

Since the original photos went into the abyss…here are some again:


[Jan, I moved your photos to your original post. I don't recognize the image hosting site that you originally used. Did they stop their business? Tom]

Great build. The handle and reel seat are awesome.

Nice looking rod, is there some advantage to using a leather grip?

I agree with Chris ...the texture that thread gives the blank is way cool.
