Hi Schreiber,

Welcome to the forum, the rods are about perfect. I especially like the choice of inserts and hardware as finishing touches. Now for a vintage Hardy Featherweight in mint condition and away you go............. :)

Nice job and good workmanship. Those CTS blanks are sweet, eh? I especially like the Affinity MX.

Thanks guys! I'm already on to the next projects - MX 480, Affinity X 490 and Z-Axis 490. A trout angler can never have too many #4 rods :D

Welcome to the forum. Very nice builds. Are they your first builds? I built my first one last month and order a couple of Tiger Eye blanks yesterday. Rod building is an addictive hobby.
