    A rod built in memorial to his Mom that passed...Very happy to do this for him.
    He wanted the same purple and green I used on my last build.
    MHX MB783 blank ,Amtak Nanolite micro guides,Shaved Minima reel seat,Eva grips.With a memorial decal on top and rod specs on bottom.
    The tiger wrap is two different shades of purple on top to help blend better with the purple winding checks.Keep the guide wraps simple with FH locking wraps.Overall,I think it came out very nice and he gets to see it tomorrow.
    It'll be nice to present this rod in person.

    Thanks Randy,Rob

    Its a pain keeping the epoxy from running up the leg to the eye on these tiny guides while using a locking wrap,but its getting easier.

    It does take a little time but you will get use to it. the locking is a must

    Beautiful. I really like the guide wraps, simple, but really unique looking.
