    Here is rod I built for a good friend of mines benefit auction. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor at Christmas. The blank is private label, Carbon fiber grip I made, Batson YFLY inTich, Chrome SF guides. Wraps are Cobalt with copper mettallic. The rod case is mahogany with walnut butt cap and anodized gold top cap.

    Beautiful rod, but the case is what catches my attention. Absolutely gorgeous addition to an already beautiful rod!
