Finished up a Virginia Tech Hokie themed rod built on a Batson Enterprises RainShadow Rod Blanks Immortal 7' 2" Medium-Heavy, Fast action blank with ALPS ForeCast guides & reel seat, along with Winn Grips Fishing split grips & butt.

The rod is decked out with a custom three-layer Hokie Bird weave and matching fade trim bands and chevron wrap all done with Fuji Components thread via Anglers Resource.

This rod is ready to chase some striped & largemouth bass on Smith Mountain Lake, VA

Looks pretty hokey to me . . . sorry, couldn't resist :-)

Very nice work. Love the chevron. What thread colors did you use?
