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.
