Never built a Steffen and this blank was courtesy of the third Steffen brother in Michigan...Can't wait to cast it...Struble agate guide with U20 Dark Titanium anodized seat with vermillion insert, claret silk wraps with red and red/copper trim...Claret turned out a little too black.

Looks great as is. The claret may show more in sunlight.

The blank color seems a little brighter than other Steffen rods I've seen but that could be due to the good image quality or maybe wrap color. Either way, it definitely pops. Nice build! Let us know how it casts.
