    I'm a bit slow to the draw to post pics on this one. I wrapped it for my Dad as a Christmas gift a couple months back - never took pics as I was in a rush to get it to him. In town for work and decided to finally post it. Anyhow - RCLB70ML, Alps centralock seat, batson double black chrome wire guides, red abalone, black on black wraps with met red and met pale gold inlays, Papilio gold decal. This rod has been collecting dust from day one and will probably get very little use, however he was pretty stoked to get it.

    Matt,
    That red ab looks very sharp! It wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't see much use. It being a family heirloom n all. :) Nice job!
