    Well It is mostly done. I might add a couple techniques after I pop it cherry on Reds and Specks in Texas. The Handle is a Blabaum Special. I think he told me the spider web was made from my very own Budweiser Cans left over from the Conclave in 08.(it makes a good story anyway. Tiger in the split grip with Met Purple and Flo Chartreuse sent to me from the G man. Cross Wrap variation off the optical and the weave is the Badass Bass originally done as a grip from Billy V and the weave was done once by Ray A. I of course tweeked it with Owens P2W. Also a bit of an experiment. Someone asked me a couple months back about where he could get some E thread so he could weave with D and I said he might try two turns each movement with A. Surprise It works pretty darn good. Since A is lower profile it also tends to keep the weave quite tight and not so bulky. Opens the door for more experiments. Pictures arent my usual quality because I was rushing the job before heading down to Dads house again to work on fixing it up for a future move and to attend another Healing Waters get together. If you guys want I can re do them later. Oh enjoy the game. Dont guess many will see this today. Oh kept the guides simple to set off the other thread work.

    Stunning! I absolutely love the chevron variation - like an optical illusion.

    Beautiful rod Doc; that weave is cool as all get out, the tiger is utterly amazing, and that opti-chev gave me a little bit of a siezure ;)
