Well... I am jumping into unknown territory with the next project. I picked up a Sage 10150 GFL rod on Ebay that was built to be a surf rod for a great price. I am going to strip it down to the blank and rebuild it for what it was intended to be after getting a new tip section for it from Sage. This will be my first shot at building a two-handed rod and I can see some possible complications, particularly with installing and finishing the grips. Anybody have any tips on grips or any other aspect of building a spey rod, I would love to hear them. Thanks all. Steve "Hope is that Thing with Feathers.."
