well, I have been restoring lots of rods for my local friends with fishing charter service, most of them wanted to restore the loaner rods on basic colors without any bling so, I considered them not worth of posting them here, but this guy brought me a rod (custom made) with mexican colors on the guide wraps and also on the EVA grips, and he wanted it rebuild it again with the same theme, it ended up looking really good, so I wanted to show it to you guys too.
the best compliment I could have from him is that he told me that it wont be used it ever, its going to be on the wall of his office along with fishing trophies and pictures.

anyway, some "before" and some "after" pictures, lets see if you notice which ones are before and after ::)
























I put TSW pacbay guides as I did on the other loaner rods but according to my friend this one its soo pretty that it wont be use it as loaner ord or by himself either
