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.
