    thats the song that came to my mind when my friend came to my house asking for a rod restoration, he wanted his "nickname" on the rod and a "look at me" colors (just how it sounds), he wanted that when the fishing rod was with the rest of the rods in the stands on the boat it screams "custom made".
    so, have you ever being asked for something like that and then telling you, that what I want, now you do the rest, colors, wraps, etc. is up to you, I just love when they say, do what you want !!

    the only other thing he wanted me install was those shookproof TWS guides, I have build some rods now with those guides and they have withstand the hard enviroment of Mexico Panga fishing as loaners rods of the charters, so he wanted those same guides.
    remember Im doing this as hobby for friends and sometimes for friends of my friends, Im way too far from being a professional rodsmith, so normally you will see few blems here and there.

    his nickname is "Teibol" which is the spanish (mexican) phonetic sound of "Table", and thats the short name for.. well you'll see.

    Not really
    He's a close friend of the owner of a local "dancing club", he works some weekends there but his official job is a deckhand of a local captain charter fleet.

    Ok Alex, I see why you didn’t post this on Alan’s site... probably doesn’t pass the 12 year old girl rule. Oh, nice job on the rod!

    Thanks Mark
    Indeed it was because the 12yo rule
    I respect that but this was a funny themed that I wanted to show.

    Pretty sure this rod will give him lots of conversation time everytime he use it
