    Very, very nice!

    I like the looks of the wood handles, but I've never fished one.

    Nice builds. Where did you get the reel seat hardware? My buddy has been trying to find the hardware but all he can find is complete seats.

    Loren,

    I get my real seat hardware from Utmost. I see you posted on them earlier. It is Batson hardware. They are only a few miles down the road from Batson. So they can get any thing you need from Batson . It's on their website.

    you built some beautiful rods. That madrone is gorgeous. Thanks for the photos. SOme people might question using wood for grips but
    they forget that cork is wood.
