    Dang, Desmond. Great looking rod. Nicely understated, just the way I like them. Niceely done.

    I was able to cast that rod a few months ago. Very nice stick - both in looks and in performance. Excellent work!

    The metallic blue thread with the blue inserts looks pretty cool. I built up a Rainshadow the blue ceramics and blue thread. I like your matching metallic trim better. Next time.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome Rod. May I ask, how much did the materials cost? Interested in building myself some rods.

    Thanks
