Haven't posted the last dozen or so rods I have done, just been busy. This one though is for a member here so wanted to be sure to post pics for him. It's a 10' 7wt 4pc Quickline series blank, walnut reel seat, custom grips and butt, and classic twist thread wraps with single turn metallic silver trim.

She's a beauty! Love the dark burl cork in the grip. Can't wait to put a steelhead on the end of it!

You're gonna love it Bryon. One thing I like about these Quickline blanks is how light they are. For a 7wt, it's gonna feel like a 3wt in hand.

Now ... THAT'S a beautiful cork grip !!!

I like the rest of the rod, too ... but I LOVE that handle.

Beautiful ! If those blanks are that light I might have to build one myself along the way. Love that red on the wraps by the way, it looks a little more cranberry than your usual red you use, though I like that as well. Bryons gonna love this rod me thinks !
