Thinning the arsenal, so I can build a few more
I built all the rods with quality components, Alps guides and heavy duty Fuji reel seats. All guide wraps are triple wrapped, base wrap and two layers over guide feet.
Left to right:
(2) Rainshadow, SWB70MH(7', 15-30#), E-Glass blank, 14" EVA foregrips, 8" slick butts covered with X tube shrink wrap. Great 30# rod for trolling swimbaits or XRaps. Rods are new, never fished after being built. $90 shipped each.
(2) Pac Bay, X2G70MH(7', 20-50), 14" EVA foregrips, 8" slick butts covered with X tube shrink wrap. Great 40# troll rods. Blank is similar to a Calstar Grafighter(graphite composite). These rods have been fished for 3 years, only during Albacore season. Both sold.
(1) Super Seeker, CJBF80(8', 20-40#), X tube shrink wrap over cork tape handle(deckhand style). This rod has only been fished on one LR trip, used only for throwing Wahoo bombs. I still have to put a Turkshead at the top of the handle. $200 shipped.
(1) Super Seeker, CJBF80(8', 20-40#) blank, not pictured. #120 shipped
