A trio of 2wt shx series rods all done and ready to go. Quite a change going from all the 11ft nymph rods of the past 3 weeks to spending a day getting these little 6'6" ones done. Now it's back to the 11'ers.

Nope he just wanted one green one brown and one burgundy. One I think is a B day gift for his wife and the other two for his friends I believe.

You know, since you're busy building all these rods, I'll gladly volunteer to test them out for you.   Think about it, our waterways don't freeze over down here, so I'm available year round.  The testing area is less than ten minutes from my house.  Win Win!
