ok its not really a rod it used to be 1 though.... it now a camera holder so the cam can be dunked underwater from the boat anyway this is my first go at marbeling pretty happy with it.... (yes the camera will be upside down when underwater but most editing software allows you to filp the video
When shooting a mime, don't use a silencer or his friends will hear you.
If camera lenses are round why do the pictures come out rectangle?

Here's a 8ft LBG rod I buit for a friend recently:

Origionally a 10ft blank I chopped off 2ft of the butt section, then chopped a peice that would fit over the rods butt section and act as a slick butt:



A heavy duty Fuji reel seat, a fuji 25mm gimble and a hypolon grip sorted out that side of things.

Fuji BH guides and a simple but nice red and gold colour combo to match a TLD50:

10kg drag. Plenty of power.











Picked it up Sat morn, then Sunday night I get a text saying tested it on a 21kg king and liked the rod!







PM if interested in something similar.

Cheers.

My second rod made, I bought a blank of Nagged at Kilwell (thanks Neville) a nano tech 7ft 10Kg thin little beauty. I took 4 inches off and after a few evenings....







Fuji guides from R A Connaghan Grips and Fuji Seat from Go Fish



Copper and silver metallic underbind with Charcoal Black over. Coupled with my Avet Sx Lefty...





Pretty bloody stoked to be fair, am hoping to slay some fish with it soon.
