    If you don't mind sharing..... how long is the butt grip and fore grip? Is your first guide a 25 or a 20? Thanks! As i shared earlier in the thread, i am going to do a very similar build. Love the colors and detaill work! You have some mad skills!

    Rear is rubber gimbaled alps butt cat with 13.5" hypalon. Fore is 16" coldshrink over two layers of cork tape. Stripper is a 25. Good luck on your build! And thank you! I owe much of my ability to build to the kind and generous members of this forum and the San Diego rod builders class members. Good luck with your build.
