    Have not posted much in awhile. I ahve been very busy between the "real" job,grandkids, rodbuilding and handle making. Here are som pics of a few different things going on.
    1. the top and bottom ones called mybrids, I can paint the foam core underneath and have that show through to the handle. I can match guide wraps, reel seat colors, team colors etc. The middle one is a CFR handle with burl/cork ends and pink hybrid sleeving and on of Ron's (Goduster) Lemke special order pink seats.

    Thanks Matt. The one green one is with your marbled reel seat you sent me.

    Haa good stuff Mr Carbon Fiber :)
    I didn't even notice it.... I just skimmed past it and thinking it was an acrylic insert. Glad you found a good use for it and I do have to say I LOVE THE BLACK AND RED!!!
