    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.

    nice rod....custom!!! one of a kind.
    looking to possibly build a rod...last
    rod built was at herter sports shop
    in Eau Claire Wisc early 80's sage
    9ft reserve blank...the weight isn't
    on the blank just sage graphite B891GFL
    tight line told me it feels like a 7wt.

    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?
