Latest rod out of the shop tonight is this 9' 7/8wt 4pc with carbon fiber seat, custom grip, and navy wraps with no trim makes for a subtle look to the rod.

That navy is kind of funny the way it acts on this grey blank. In the flash of the camera you can see the blue tint, but in person even under lights it looks black. Gonna have to see tomorrow when the sun it out how it looks outside in the sun.

It'd be interesting to see if the sunlight brings the color out more. I've got a green rod with bright green wraps that looks all one color until it's in sunlight and it really makes the colors pop.

I'd like to see those wraps in the sunlight, too.  Super dark blues aren't my style.  Like you said, Steve, they look black in too many situations.
