    I build this rod for my Sweetie,,
    7' med action , rated about 25#.
    Built up this Abu Garcia 6500 in the Maroon color for her also.. Converted this one to the IAR style bearing, put in the Carbon Drags,and, 6.3:1 gear ratio..

    Was a fun build,, and I'm kinda tired of her outfishin' me with her Zebco tackle..:smile2:

    That is a nice pole, good job. My wife wants a pink one too. Wish I could make it for her, but will probably have to buy it from BPS.

    yes, I am the sweetie, also known as nannycat here in the BOC. I love my new rod, it is really hot lookin' especially in person. It looks so good I just can't stand the thought of going out and getting it all guckie...so yes, all you guys should have one built for your sweetie if she loves to fish like I do. I can't wait to get mine out there and catch a bigger one than snagged2 !!

    Thanx Greg, I love you....hope you like the special dinner I'm cooking for you tonight:003::002:

    Hey gang... had the plesure of fishing with Snagged2 and Mindy at the Blythe Gathering.... took em out in my boat for a short run on Sat. night after our Gathering get together.....

    I got to see all the gear that Greg had brought with him to sell or share with us..... This guy has a walking parts store with him... can convert ABU's of all colors and sizes...

    I was rather impressed with one custom wrapped rod that he had to show for his time..... he has one that has rattle snake skin on the lower end and grips... but the one that I like was up there in the price range... I was hoping that since you boys all like me so well... that we might take up a collection of say $.25 per friend or potential friend and I might have the rod for my birthday at the end of August....

    I mean this rod is nice... got a balance to it that is un-believable... and the grips are such that it would be an excellent ocean rod for tuna and yellowtail and would just fill the bill for a replacement of my ole "moyer" rod that looks like shit now....

    Dream on.... Bayrunner Ray
