Default RDP Custom 7'6" 2wt

Well it finally arrived. I ordered a custom 7'6" 2wt from Mark over at RDP Custom Rods and am super excited about this one. It is a 4pc rod that I had him wrap the all black hardware with chocolate wraps and black accents. Minimal writing of just the length and line size are written on it. Hand turned cork cigar grip with cork under the reel and slip ring to hold it in place. Casted wonderfully today with the AirFlo Super-Dri Elite line I spooled up.

A couple of pictures from when it arrived earlier in the week:

I bet it would land a carp might take me all afternoon but I could get the job done.
