This is a swordfish/marlin caster with a nod to the swordy, as it's a E-Glass Calstar 6465H, and the softer action makes pulled hooks less likely (they have soft mouths). Perfection seat and gimbal, Fuji HD casting guides (2-20s and the rest 16s), rear grip is X-Flock over cord and EVA fore grip.

The butt wrap is a double open tiger wrapped over a base of Voodoo Flash, all size D with two sacrifice threads. First wrap left silver metallic and the top left black.

I changed things up by doing tigers on the guide over-wraps instead of underneath 'em.

Although it's hard to tell, that's squid the swordfish is on.

    You can call it anything you want but it looks like PURPLE to me, and anything PURPLE is top banana in my book. You need to come up with a name for tiger over wraps Bill. Travel safe.......and keep warm!!!!!
