    This rod has another experiment with a sixteen axis diamond matrix base. I think this rod will be on display at the Fred Hall show coming up in a couple of weeks.....

    Not really............but thanks! ;) It's almost too much, kinda takes away from the effect a bit. The photos suck because I didn't have much sunlight to work with. I think this would have come out better if I'd have had that electric blue metallic in size A............but it wasn't an option.

    Nice I like the color combo over the blue. I did a 'micro' wrap in purple but with Bill's method. Definitely sets it apart from the bigger scaled version imho.

    Amazing as usual. Is the green thread you used for the diamonds, size "D"?

    Yeah it was size D metallic..........would have preferred to use size A, but I pushed ahead with what I had on hand.

    Thanks for the compliments...........and EdH, I like the way you think! ;) :D

    (hey that rhymed)
