    Not ones I would willingly share

    Just kidding, I wasnt happy with the first one(cosmetically), but the second has a nicer finish. I will post some pics and maybe a vid as I should have them on my GoPro. Not home right now so maybe the weekend.

    Hello Stylie

    Very, very nice. You have done a cracking there, they look fantastic!!

    Would you change anything?
    Snakes for different rings?
    Lengthen/shorten the butt?
    Heavier/lighter line weight & weight of rod?
    Different reel seat?
    Bigger/smaller internal diameter?
    Different type or material?
    Longer or shorter rod length?

    I’m looking to have around a 18”-24” butt with the reel seat mounted half-way and a fairly robust butt cap to provide for a non-slip feature when the rod is resting on the seat or with a longer butt, the deck/floor of the boat while fishing.

    My butt is going to be made of leather disks which I will shape in accordance with my hand size then burnish for the purposes of waterproof.

    Apologies for the late reply, but I have to keep the missus in gin!!
