This is my second rod that I build.
I repeated it again, its not perfect but I am satisfied
Thank you to all rod building masters here that inspired me.
I have cast on the garden and in my opinion this rod is truly delight with a dt3 (Scientific angler supra) on the cast of about 10 meters
and shot very well around 15 meters with a wf4 (Vision fly line)
Tuesday I'll try it on the river.
And a new project is on the way: rebuilding a fenwick fl 90 5 (I found a blank realy perfect, but I don't like guides, wrapping, grip, reel seat)
Thank you for watching
Luigi

Very nice Luis. I like the darker green shade thread. Did you mortise the cork, it looks great.
