This rod took a while to get started on. First off, the USPS decided to run over the first blank sent my way by Hook & Hackle so it was broken upon arrival.
|Pretty Thorough, they managed to break every section|
|It was even sent in a PVC tube...|
This was to be my big game rod that I could use to further my pursuit of Carp, Pike, Bass and any other opportunities that come my way. I turned the handle myself, a little while back, along with a fighting butt, and used a Graphite reel seat from Janns NetCraft.
|It's the one on top. The other one needs a little more |
work, hopefully I'll get to use it soon.
|The ferrule wraps|
|Nice looking rod|
|A look at what I did at the guides|
