Default Epic 580 Salsa fund raiser

Just finished up one of the prizes for the SSFFC Kid's Academy poker tourney fund raiser. Every year our club has a Texas Hold Em tournament to raise funds for our Kid's Academy. This year the rod is an Epic 580 in the Salsa color. I love how the Epics take on a life of their own depending on the lighting.

Wraps: Persall's Gossamer Jasper silk with 2 turn black trim wraps. The Gossamer is so thin it makes "A" thread look like rope
Seat hardwareL Lemke LC1 Polished Nickel
Seat insert: Cherry Burl
Stripping guide: Amber agate.
Guides, tip top, winding check: Snake Brand
Handle: Full wells
