I don't post any rod for a long time so today i want to show you guys a Snapper rod that i build about six months ago.

The blank is an American Tackle ATX series, with two tips, Fuji K guides and a Pac Bay reel seat. The threads are all from ProWrap.
I used an aluminum butt with a grip made with EVA half balls with aluminum washers in the middle. Not the first time i do this grip but always like the final result and its very comfortable in the hand.
The graphic its very simple with a Snapper head, the name of the rod, "Venator Lutjanus Purpureus II" and my logos.
