    The second of two new rail rods for David Harris, heading for PV next week. This one is a United Composites CX76 Invictus. Damn, this thing is beastly!! Features Fuji HBSG silicone carbide guides, a Batson / Alps centra lock reel seat, and Rail Dawg fore grip from Bill Havens (thanks Bill!). Each guide wrap has a four color fade, and the deco wrap is a closed chevron / fish scale wrap.

    Jim, on rods like this do you double wrap the guides footh or one sigle wrap is enough for 35#-40# drag reels?

    Jim,

    I realize you posted this awhile back, but it is still one of best rods I’ve seen you do. Just fantastic.
