This rod might be a little over the top for some but was sure fun to build. Customer wanted bright,green and bling.
Blank-RX7 9' 4pc 5wt
Grip-Carbon fiber with bamboo and birch checkerboards
Reel seat-B101 with green and black swirl acrylic insert
Guides-PacBay N chrome stripper and minnima 4 running guides
Thread-Fishhawk Meadow variegated with gunsmoke metallic trims
Winding check matching acrylic of insert

That's a fine looking rod, great job on filling the fisherman's needs because that rod is a whole lot of bright,green and bling Job well done!! I have the final coat turning on my rod and I do believe that you sold me on the CF grips because they are comfy.

Thanks everyody for the nice words. The Pac Bay minnima's are my go to guides right now for most of my fly rod builds. They are only slightly heavier than a standard wire guide, but way lighter than a typical ringed guide.
