I have a 686 RPL and I think it is one of the best rods ever made. I hope I never have an accident with it !

If I could only keep one rod the RPL would be it.

Nice job.
It's not stock . Looks like a mixture of red and maybe green burl cork.

Kayo is that a 690 or 960? On your other post its a 690 Clean build

First rod I ever built was a 490 RPL. Best rod I ever broke and it wasn't even while I was fishing

Great work. I'd like to see the wrap detail a little better, but I have a small screen right now.

Great to see this rod. The Sage RPL 690 was the best. Mine was stolen from my bag at DIA after a great fishing trip. Still miss her.
