This 10' 3wt is for a customer whom is buying it as a 30th Anniversary gift. Since 30th is pearl they wanted to work that pearl them somehow into the rod. So I had Ron Weber/Southwest Custom Rods turn a nice white acrylic reel seat to fit a BUL5 hardware. Since the white acrylic is somewhat transparent in spots I did blue under the seat for the arbors that way it has a slight bluish hue in spots to give it that mother of pearl look. The wraps are white with metallic titanium trim that spirals over each wrap to add to the pearl look.
