    This one was just finished up and shipped out today..........it's a gift from Brad Loomis to his former Drill Sergeant affectionately know as "Godzilla". Rod is made entirely from top of the line Batson / Alps components. Blank is the US made Rainshadow "Judge" JDGLB80M, 8 foot 20-50lb. Guides are the all titanium frame, zirconium ring. Cobalt blue triangle "Insight" reel seat. Triangle EVA fore grip, split grips in the rear all dressed off with machined aluminum wind checks. Throop Tiger wrap in the split grip area, Dragonscale above the fore grip, and dressed off with a SDPW of Godzilla himself. Had a lot of fun with this one! :D

    I didn't see the tab for the components on this one, as they were all provided by Bill Batson. But I'm confident it was over the $300 threshold.
