The story...


     I was contacted by V.K. and commissioned to build an additional set of twin float rods to his specifications on discontinued Sage blanks.  These builds went smoothly and I was given permission to try something new.  The diamond inlay jig makes for some awesome looking grips.  I see that facet of the design being incorporated often in future builds.  I enjoy the variety that it'll open up as the tooling is quite versatile and will present new possibilities for my clients.

Build Review:


I have fun building these discontinued and highly desirable Sage float rod blanks.  These two additions bring V.K.'s arsenal to a total to five IRC float rods, talk about a dedicated client!  I really appreciate his business and the trust he has placed in my abilities!




With this rod, the adventure ends, but another awaits my attention....
