    well, this is getting outta control... I better should stop rewrapping rods now that is still time, my actual fishing time its been reduced by reel repairs already and now even more with rod repairing for friends and mouth to mouth recomendations, good thing is that I still enjoying it a lot and really like the comments from the guys when they see the "new" rod rebuilded.

    this time a friend wanted this rod wrapped with his favorite football team, as always there go some before and after pics

    this rod was more challenging than previous rebuilds, it was my 1st time doing those white stripes with the thin black lines on the decorative trim and under the guides, they came up pretty decent, nothing compared to what the pro builders on this site do every day, but they look really cool and my friend was stocked when he saw it.

    You took a rod that looked like you would find it in a dumpster and turned it into a new looking hand built theme inspired killing machine! Nice work! Thank you for sharing.

    thanks buddy, well thats the way it was delivered to me, 3 broken guides and the tip and pretty bad scratched all over, the ending job make you forget the way it was before


    I still feel like a Newb on RBuilding, this rod should be my 5th rod that I rewraps all guides but I was just using two colors schemes, before those I was just fixing 1 or 2 guides per rod, I learned a lot on those small fixes.

    Might be time for you to rethink the "amateur" part of your posts. I'm waiting for your first build from scratch.

    Me too LOL

    I was actually saving to get me a RCLB 70M or 70ml blank and accessories but got a nice offer for two Phenix factory Rods, an axis 802h and PSW700h and the funds for new Rods is gone for several months
    And most local guys like their current Rods but want better accesories on then and customized colors
