    One of my rare posts of a freshwater rod. This is a Phenix Ultra MBX-700MH baitcaster. Features Fuji Alconite guides, and an Alps trigger seat. EVA grips with some simple inlay work........something else I haven't done much of in the past. Four color fade work on all the guides, that was getting kinda tricky with my numb old fingers as I got closer to the tip! LMAO!!

    Great looking rod! I agree, doing anything fancy on micro guides or smaller guides in general gets pretty tricky. Either way you killed it!

    Love the overall look to the rod! Fade work looks killer! Colors are reminiscent or the 70's era. Awesome!

    Good job on the mini wraps, wait til your fingers are as old as mine.... or worse, as old as Doc's LOL

    Yeah.........especially poor Doc's hands after his new fish pond project. Hope he's doing better. After finishing this little bass rod, I think the next time I do a build like this I'll be breaking out the old hand wrapper instead of trying to do it in the lathe.

    Thanks to everyone for the comments! :)

    Yeah Rob, these seats are pretty damn sweet. Shape and design when they close down on the feet of the reel. I don't do many freshwater sticks these days, but I'll definitely be recommending this Alps when those come along.
