Re: Ferrule wrap issue, I want your opinion
While reading the first page of this, I was wondering why you "prepped" the blank. I've never done it myself, and have never heard of anyone else doing it either. Ahhh, page two, got my answer...nevermind.
Anywho, I like the first design. I like the trim on the open end. Not sure about the trim bands in the gold area.
But it's your rod, and like everyone has already said, there are no rules in custom rod building.
