I've had many requests to post pics of My new custom rod. So here Ya go rod specs 8' E-glass heavy action blank double foot stainless steel guides (no inserts to pop out) Fuji reel seat with custom trigger Portuguese cork handle Double flex coat finish. These rods are handcrafted one at a time By a gentleman who has over 40 years of rod building experence. The workmanship is undeniable 100% 1st class. The custom rod I had built before this one cost Me almost double what this one did, and this one is nicer!
