Just finished this one.. Thrasher 8106 Jig Stick for my Irish friend Alan.
All ALPS Titanium Chrome
Fugu Cork handle - this is 1.5" special order green burl cork that I am using for a 2nd time'... love it.
it matches the Titanium chrome Alps seats and trim really well.
Hitena - Jelly Bean is the base color Original Idea was Irish Flag with Orange, White and Green
so I put some White Opal, Green Abalone and some dabs of orange marbling in the butt wrap
Second attempt at some URUSHI (loose interpretation) abalone and opal butt wrap Looks better in the sun than in this photos
Some how just could not get the Orange to work on the guides and blue just looked better.
so I rolled with that. And happy with results.

Sweet Thrasher jigstick again! 😁 I really like the color combination of burl cork to match the green thread. The marbling and abalone pops too. Trigger seat and bottom Turk's ooze "style". I've kept all my Thrasher blanks RAW and unfinished also. It's a different look and keeps it unique. Nicely done once more, Todd. Inspired... 🐟

    I cannot wait to fish this stick! A true work of art and it pairs perfectly with the Tranx 500
