    Just delivered last night, this is a United Composites US80 Tilefish for Chris Carlson's wife Denise. Chris ordered this as a surprise gift for Denise to memorialize the lost of her sister, Sherie Dee, unexpectedly to an aneurysm. Rod features 100% Batson / Alps components.

    Beautiful tribute rod, Jim. I'm sure her sister will be right there at the rail every time she goes bendo. Seriously, that rainbow fade though! Bonkers...😁

    Really appreciate all the kind comments with this one. Definitely a labor of love when it comes to something that requires the extra attention.

    The color combination was basically a collaborative effort between what was asked, and what I could put together. It's always a challenge, but over the years I've become more comfortable with the fact that nothing is really impossible. As long as I approach it as if I was color blind. Tones, shades, contrasts, etc.
