Thanks John, it was originally a spinning rod that was in pretty rough shape. He wanted a conventional to buck tail with so I had to strip it down. I wanted to go "deckhand special" with it and have no reel seat but he fought me on it
. I think the butt would have looked cleaner if it was all cord (plus two less turk's heads to tie).
