    From Photo G.

    I just got off the phone with Jesse, and he tell me that the largest calico bass for the year of 2010 submitted to the BD monthly Photo Contest will win a

    [​IMG]
    Long Beach Series swimbait rod.
    It will be the "biggest" calico of the year judged and determined soley by Jesse.

    The one I will build will be a seven foot, ten inch, beefy swimbait rod, suitable for 65 lb braid, or 25 lb. mono/fluoro.
    These spiral wrapped (Downwrap) custom rods retail in Japan for US$ 593.00.
    I was thinking of making it BD black and red, with possibly some related color bling, such as metal Fuji windchecks, and a custom auto-detail paint flip flop (changes color depending on light and angle of sight).

    Although not decided yet, I will put on some titanium bling, and new Fuji SiC guides that are not available (yet) in the USA.

    You know what they say (in Japan) about Capt. G's rods--
    "もっと良い竿があるけど、もっとええ値竿がおまへんわ”
    (You can find a much better rod, but you can't find a more expensive one).

    Still, there is a five month waiting list for the rods, so I guess they are OK.

    I will start on the rod this summer, making sure it is done by year end. You can come pick it up in Osaka, or I will bring it out to Cali when I make my 2011 winter business trip there.

    Peace out.

    I'm not Rudy, but that's a hell of a deal. I think I've found the motivation to start going for Calicos this year.

    the "SBK" is now dangerously close to some green toxic clouds...

    The glow in the dark. This pic is taken in the dark, without flash or common sense, with a super long exposure.
    You can just make out the "RadioSilence.com ", which is the look I was going far.

    Justin wanted army green, and burgundy, so that's what he got.

    DSC01753.jpg
    I took apart the abalone inlay that was on the reel seat when I started. This is real ab shell, not a sticker, and it matches the snakeskin Burgundy reel seat much better.

    DSC01754.jpg
    The split grip sports an faux abalone CKW wrap; I aint gonna lie to you, it looks bitchen.

    That is pretty much my story, and I am not willing to change it for anything...
