Beautiful as always Jon.
What phenix blank is that? Black diamond hybrid?
Thank you. That is what I thought it looked like. Just couldn't remember the model number. All I could think of was psw and psx. Beautiful rods.
Thanks a ton man
I am guessing that is madeira thread as well? I swear I have to get some of that stuff. The colors are so bright there's almost no need for metallic threads except for some trims, much like how you used it.
Yep, all Madeira except for the gold.
Beautiful! Love the fade and color scheme! Your marbling work is awesome!
Colors on FIRE 2X. Beautiful!
Those are great Jon...I would like to try that fade on a build I am doing now. Can you point me in the right direction to get this dialed in?
I've gotten a TON of messages about doing fades...I'm going to make a video here pretty soon so I'll PM you with the link when I get it done.
Right on...Thank you for that.
hello, Jon, so, all threads used on this rod are madeira? wow, so nice.
did you used double overwrap or a single madeira over wrap is enough strong for this kind of blank(40-60)?
Please include how you get such perfect finish with madeira . I have a bunch of madeira and love all the colors but pull my hair out trying to put finish on it. I won't even use it any more.
I just saw the Madeira thread on how to deal with it ... Going to try again .
The first overwrap is done with gudebrod gold, I then apply finish and then wrap the madeira over that.
gotcha, thanks for the tip Jon, I should try that
Gorgeous work John! Another one of your designs I'm gonna have to steal, green and gold though.
