9' 5wt just out of the drying cabinet this morning done up with burl wood seat/custom grip and dark green main wraps with single turn metallic silver trim to add just a touch of class to the subtle looking wraps.

Nice grip, but not enough dark cork!

Thanks. The single turn definitely fits the look on some rods like the darker green blanks. IMO its reminiscent of the look the older Winston's use to have. Not sure if they still do it these days though I haven't owned a Winston in many years.

What kind of $$ does a rod like this run?  Are these fast action rods?

He can make you pretty much anything you want, he's very reasonable with price a large number of us own at least one of Steeldrifters rods and in most cases it's not because we're loaded, although if you wanted to drop thousands on a rod I'm sure he could make it happen and be worth the cost.

Very nice Steve one of my favorites so far I think, so many nice ones.

Price depends on exact parts used but normally one like this I try to keep around $135-$145 for guys here.

 

Dave- still very sore. Might end up having the Doc look at me if I'm not better in the next week or so.
