PHENIX 929X2H 9'2" 40-100LB BABY BLUE PROTOTYPE.
NO I DONT KNOW WHY THEY MADE THEM BABY BLUE.
MY WIFE JESSICA HAS BEEN PLAYING AROUND WITH MARBLING FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS WE FIGURED THIS WAS A GOOD BLANK TO EXPERIMENT ON.
Anyways I know it isn't perfect but I thought she did a good job and wanted to give her credit for the build.
I picked up a blue maxel two speed while at Icast and through it on there thought the combo looked pretty sweet together photos attached.

It looks like a matte baby blue or sky blue. Very bright and colorful. I didn't know Phenix has a 929X2H. I thought they only have the 929H.
