Just give me a few days to get the stuff I want.

One of the rods is a 9' 10 wt. BIIX Winston. When Winston discontinued the BIIX , I got a few blanks before they were all gone. As I may have mentioned, my 9' 10 wt. BIIX is my favorite single hand rod. I thought very seriously about keeping the second one for life just like the first one. I may still do it. But since there is such fine wood around to turn a seat and grip parts, I thought I would build it.

This is the one I already built. That wood is double dyed stabilized box elder burl. I may even go a tad fancier with the cork portion. The new guy has wood that is nicer than what is in my rod, so maybe go all out on the grip.

That wood looks better in person. About a thousand little eyes.
