Just finished up this 6'7" 2pc 8-12lb Spin rod as a gift for a friend. Neighbor up North keeps an eye on our cabin for us while we are not there so figured I'd build him this spin rod and surprised him with it when I get up there Friday on vacation. He had me build a rod for his wife last year so now they will both have custom rods.

Yep ... I really love that veined cork.

And the finish on those wraps is outstanding.  Not my colors, but it's a pretty rod.
