KEPT IT SIMPLE! (5 years later)
Just got back my lamiglas 526 blank…
That’s right a 526 7’1 25-60lb

I’ve always had a vision of a split grip 527, but with this little more back bone that the 526 has it was game on. A good friend of mine turned me onto a new local wrapper named Curtis who’s company is called “SD custom fishing rods” and after some back and forth measuring and remeasuring. We had it all squared away. 5” forgrip 6” backgrip 3” rear bottom grip with the 1.5” Alps rounded gimbal.
(4.5” bottom) all blacked out Alps XNLG
Guides. Fuji trigger grip. Wala…. SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!

Bumble Bee! 🙂 Nice build. I beat my gear up too so I'm all into the clean and simple wrapping, especially when you mix old school with new school components. A couple of yellow Fenwick's and an 8' cut CUI are in my future plans. Have fun killing some fish with that blast from the past blank! 🐟

    Nicely done! I like the simplicity of the build....very clean.
    I refurbished a Sabre Californian 15-40# this past winter and kept it clean and simple. Love it. I then built a couple of Thrashers and went wild and flashy. They were fun but I think I'm gonna keep it simple from here on out!

    I like simple! Big fam of the K.I.S.S method of life. I do have a rod I’m currently contemplating going nuts on but it’s a 1 of 1 Sabre blank. And I should just keep it simple

    I need a ride.
    The rod looks great, but looking at it closely, it looks like it needs one more coat of finish to ensure the threads are fully coated.

    Beautiful clean build otherwise.

    exactly that! She’s getting that 1 last coat from tip to grip today. I was over dropping off a few blanks I just stripped down when he said she’s all but done! Snapped some photos and She’s spinning now. Should be done at the same time my 710 magnaglas finishes up today
