    Just finished this one for a new customer. Phenix M1 Inshore Series SMX82H, spun some costom grips in Dodger colors, Essex soft touch seat, SIC guides, wrapped in pacbay cobalt blue, gudebrod white and gudebrod 720 nylon gray size D with no color preserver for a translucent wrap on the guides and hook keeper. No prep on the guides for a cleaner look thru the translucent effect. Looks pretty cool. The tiger was wrapped with the same threads and used the nylon gray on top and it almost dissapeared with the effect. I did get some great movement out of it though, interesting. Hope my customer likes it.

    Wow Jimmy.....this one came out great....I really like all the different things you got going on!

    How do you like the new Inshore line? I just ordered one and if they're as good as the old line I'm sure I'll be happy....

    Thanks guys.

    Doug, they are sweet blanks! Nanotubes technology just like the M1's. This thing has backbone to spare.

    Nice work Jimmy. Havent had a customer yet that I can talk into doing the translucent guide wrap thing. Just gonna have to make myself another rod so I
    can try it out. What parking structure do you go to too get a shot of the Downey skyline?

    Looks pretty cool I think. By the way, that's not Downey, your about 23.6 miles off!
