The building section has been a bit slow lately so I thought I would post the latest off my bench. Its a Mystic 11'3", 7wt. switch rod. First Mystic blank I have built on. The new owner sent me the blank so it will be up to him to field test it.
Wraps: Ruby Red, turned into a nice Garnet with the finish.
Trim: Metallic Gun Metal Grey
Seat Lemke Titanium with a CA finished Black Ash burl insert dyed to match Amboyna
Guides: Snake Brand Universals, dark nickel
Handles: Mixture of rubberized, natural, natural burl, red burl and burnt corks
Thanks for looking,
