    I'm thinking about an overnight trip to where ever the fish are biting. Probably out of Dana Point...it all depends on what the fish are doing.

    He's a good guy to build you a rod like that.. Cool idea. Was the random decco section your idea or his? Im guessing yours... He's right, your gonna love your Setyr.

    Looks a bit like Russ Pollack's craft ribbon usage there. Is it, or is it done the hard way?

    Just asking. With no obvious xwrap mergings, from a pic I can't tell the difference. Russ CP's his ribbon, so the show-thru is at a minimum and that would be an obvious clue. But if not individually CP'ed the ribbon would have the translucence I think I see in those pics. So I had to ask.

    i recognized your work immediately Steve. thats a cool wrap, great coolers. old skool with a touch of new skool craziness. i can imagine it blings out much more in person. ALPS XN's, im guessing ALPS seat. the carbon fiber look of the Setyr blank (butt only ??) is neat tight. A pink or silver SX would be bad ass on there. Hope she gets to test it on an albie at some point. A slug on 20-25# on that rig would be a hell of a contest.

    A true Artist at work, by far some of the best quality work out there "IMO", I've seen Steven's work up close, "at the rod show" this guy put's his heart and soul into his work,and you can tell that he really love's to do it, by the creativity that he put's in each rod. That's why I can't wait to see what he does with my rod. Monique your one lucky girl, I hope the pink turn's red from all the fish you kill on your trip down here.
