This is a Lamiglas 7'6" 2 pc honey glass rod I just finished. Rattan wrapped grip, black and orange verigated thread for the guides. Threadmaster epoxy. Sweet slow rod that likes Rio Selective Trout II DT

Cool rod! What weight is it? I see the ring on the end of the female ferrule,
and wonder what the end of the male ferrule looks like. I need more pics !

Thanks for the compliments. I can't believe I forgot to put the weight down.
It's a 4w. Slow but smooth.
I got the idea for the ferrule ring from a guy named Matt Leiderman. This cat builds beautiful rods, so I stole that idea from him. As a 2pc. it's a tip over butt. No ferrules. I'll have to take some more pics or find some more of it.

Wow! Very nice looking rod. I like the look for the grip and the thread wraps are very nice looking.

What kind of reel seat is it?

I love those rods and yours has about the best finish I've ever seen on one. Beautiful work Allen and I love that reel too
