Very subtle and clean build on this 11ft 3/4wt rod. brown wraps to match the blank with some silver accents and burl grip give it an over all subdued look.

Man o' man !!!

That grip would look GREAT with lacquer or poly on it !!!  (whichever one of those you use on those polished grips)

Actually nothing was applied to this grip. It's just a new style/color cork I got in and did a final sanding with a really fine grit paper.
