The busy Christmas season is upon us. I'll be spending a ton of hours at the bench getting all the rods finished before I shut down for the holidays in a couple weeks. This one finished tonight is a 6'2" UL 2-6lb test rod for a customer down in Ky.

That's a sweet rod!   

 

What brand is that reel?

looks to me like the handle is thicker than most  rods that size.  that would be a plus using  it with my big hands .     rich mc

Hey Steve
Max really likes his rod. He got a proper testing. He caught about 30 or 40 small trout on it yesterday. It can cast the small stuff in a small stocked creek.
