Fantastic work Koos. That "olienhout" insert gives it a real collector's item look.

 :tkx:  Guys, these rods gave me endless hassles, but they are done and dusted and ready to be shipped to Sweden. At one stage I felt that it would have been better buying rods off the shelve, instead of putting myself through the trouble. duh


I am sending a Shimano Sedona 1000FD with 8lb Braid along with the 2 in 1. Should compliment the rod nicely.

All good.  Not fishing nearly enough.  I have recently built a rod with ATC Titan Ringlock guides - they are awesome...
