This is an 11' 3wt 4pc with down locking seat, custom grip, dark green main wraps and rust orange trim. The grip set up on this one took a little extra work. The new owner requested a down locking seat as well as a fighting butt and most down locking seats are not made to be used with a butt of any kind. So had to spend some extra time getting a bit creative with the dremel tool to get it to work together.

Nice ! I prefer the function of down locking myself, though up locking looks nice. Actually I used to have trouble with the lock rings loosening up on the up locking, Not so much with today's reel seats though.

 Not my "cup of tea" with the colors and the light cork handle, but as usual, very nice work.
