    i had an older tiger rod that had seen better days,most of the chrome was gone from the guides,so i stripped it down and put some new fugi guides on and wrapped it in blue and gold.

    Are those the Fuji guides with the Alconite inserts? I have the same on my St.Croix Legend Tournament. I love em but worried that they'll pop out on me. Havn't yet though and I'v had that rod almost bent in half on a fish so they must be ok!

    nice job on the wraps; rep comin yer way. I use all flex coat chemicals myself. also, if you paint yer rods, ive found that Fusion spray paint does a great job and dries real fast. I noticed the dolphin sticker on the rod. where did ya get it? Ive been lookin for a catfish sticker. thought about trying to wrap one, but im just now learnin to do the diamond butt wrap, lol. saw a black widow spider butt wrap other day. It was awesome.

    thats the sticker that came on the rod,i just left it on,you can get about any sticker you want from mud hole rod building supply.i've got a couple of rods i tried the fusion paint on,i just don't like the way they look after a good season of fishing.
