Finally my second flyrod has been finished. Here are the components:

Batson Rainshadow RX7, 7'6", #4
Alps Reel seat
Alps single foot guides
Fish Hawk Variegated Wood silk thread
cork rings in flor quality, glued with PONAL glue
Flexcoat rod wrapping finish

I am quite happy how the rod ended up, but still there is some potential with the flex coat finish. I diluted it with a bit of Isopropenol and it applied in a smoother way but there is some inconsistency around the label of the rod.

Here a some pictures:


Any critics and comments are welcome...thanks.
