Default quick question!!

Just got my first kit in the mail today tottaly excited to start! I have been reading as much as I can for the past 3 months or so and got it all spined out and scotch taped up to start glueing the real seat and the cork tommorow! One thing I did not read or come accross any were on line is my blank looks more like an arrow like no finish on it no glossy look like my factory rod now has is this something that is not standard on all rods or is this something I have to put on?

thanks

colton

It's an unsanded blank, not better or worse... just not sanded
