Default OSU Sidedrifters

Been meaning to put a few pictures up of a few rods I finished recently.
Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest, hard to get clear shots of all the details on multiple rods without glare, etc., somewhere in the shot.

Specs:
NFC HM 962x
Recoil black pearl guides
SK2(16) seat with floating hood to cover the threads of the barrel.
ALPS aluminum butt caps

My golf buddy does not fish, but after seeing those rods and being a beaver alum, I would bet he would get into it hook line and sinker.

very very nice job.

CHA-CHING!

Those look fantastic, but let's be honest. 9'6 4-8 north forks with stratic ci4's on them... They are going to fish even better than they look.

Yes.
If you are utilizing super light, super sensitive blanks, it would be criminal to bog down performance with extra weight and vibration dampening full-length cork.

Thanks for the kind words.
That's close to the cost of one rod...
