Ya, these things in the sun will make you grin ear to ear!
I have a few pics, but not of the blank specifically. They were intended to show my first wrapping job. You can kind of see the blank though. The finish is just as good as my other "name brand" rods. Very consistent and even. I LOVE the dark brown color and after applying finish to those wraps, I really love the chestnut and copper combo with these blanks.
This is the 3/4wt and I have a 2wt in the same color and it seems they are equal in terms of quality and finish.
Hope that helps you some.
