    Man oh man, I have been waiting like a kid on Christmas for my Gator Rod to show up in the mail. Jim has been in contact with me keeping me updated and telling me to take some nerve pills to calm down, lol. Well, got a knock on the door today and I seen a big piece of PVC pipe outside. I had no idea what it was till I seen the address it came from. Well, after opening it up I got a real beauty of a rod. Can't wait to try it out this summer. Here are some pics.

    I asked Jim if he could do yellow and white as my colors. He said DH ran him out of those Colors trying to make a Twinkie Rod. lol


    As sturdy as it is I may try to bring jousting back to the forefront of sports. lol

    No o fence man but the rod looks a little cloudy and the wighting is coming off. Maybe it's your camera though.

    It is the camera man, hard to take pic without the flash getting in the way. The writing is under clear coat.

    Oh ok cool... Your right pictures never do anything justice. I've tried taking pictures of rods before. Never posted them because they always turn out way to dark even with a flash.
