    Awesome job. Love the rattan grip. Where are you getting the fiberglass blanks?

    Thank you guys, but this post was from almost 3 years ago
    But I guess it's new if you haven't seen it.
    The grip is rattan that has copper metallic thread between the wraps and it's coated with spar varnish. The reel seat is a downlocking walnut insert and silver hardware.

    This is the older sister to this one. I think I posted this one too.
    Flamed rattan grips, black Lamiglas fiberglass blank and a copper d/l aluminum reel seat. Snake brand guides and Mildrum stripper. Black wraps with copper metallic trim bands.

    Lee, I got my honey blanks from Anglers Workshop and the black one was from Tom at Fiberglass Flyrodders. It was a Mudhole custom blank they had a few years ago.

    Very nice finish Mojo. Seems like I remember you saying you were also using spar varnish on thread wraps now?

    Can't believe i missed this thread!

    Really nice craftsmanship, Mojo. I've never seen a ratan wrapped handle before and the varigated thread really stands out. Great finish and, I agree with Ard, the Hardy reel looks great on it!

    Looks professional.

    Ten thousand coats of spar.
    These two were done with spar varnish. I've got a couple ready to wrap (Joni is building one of them) and I have some Threadmaster Lite I want to try on these next two.
