Latest 10' 3wt out of the drying cabinet this morning. I really like the way the royal blue pops on this blank. I bet if this one had an all dark burl grip Mike would be having to wipe the drool off his monitor lol

I'll go to McDonald's in the AM to look at this one.

Yeah ... that's a fine looking rod, Steve.   That shade of blue is really nice.  And the sunlight will make it even prettier.

No drool though, as you said, the grip doesn't do it for me.
