    well guys, I was recommended to dont use "amateur" word on my builds, although I still considering myself an amateur when I see the art work many guys do on their rods, but any way, same deal than my other rewraps jobs, these rods came from another fellow that runs a sportfishing charter, rods were all beat up, he gave me the rods witht the guides already taken out and gave the some usable guides from another broken rods, so guides might not be the same model but thats the reason.

    same method, first some pics on how the rods were and some pics on how they look after the rebuild job
