    Default Latest rod.

    My latest effort. It's always nice to get a customer who knows what he wants. He asked for a 7'6" hollow #3 with two mirrored tips. A quick, progressive taper with a Ritz style grip. Clear silk wraps with a single turn red insert. Ferrule and signature wraps in chinese red silk. Reel seat insert in spalted maple with blued metal. Blued super swiss ferrules by Bailey Wood CSE.
    Here it is.
