Default Re: Carbon fiber when?

After a days worth of just running ideas in my head here is where I think I am going to start. I am in the planning stages of my next rod build. I could go with a 3/4 wt or a 5/6wt. I already have a 5wt so a 3 or 4 wt it will be. With that said I will need a 3/4wt reel! So why not build one myself right!?!? Looking at a 3" dia spool(need to figure out the width still). Simple click pawl to prevent spool over run with old school palm drag. Something mid arbor, with a couple of bearings for good measure. I am sure it will take me some time to truly get my head around a workable design but let's see where we can go with this thing!
