Ready to build this 10wt. Great Bull Red and Tarpon rod.
Haven't decided on which grip to put on it yet. Will have Black Pearl Recoil guides.


These two are on their way to Alaska to chase some Steelhead this summer.
Both are built on LOOP blanks.
The first is a Cross S1 7100 and the second build a Cross S1 8100.
Black Pearl Recoil guides, custom carbon fiber wrapped grips with both reel seats having carbon fiber inserts to match grip. Thread color is fluorescent yellow.

763 Blue Halo


The glass builds have been keeping me busy the past few months.
This one is a 7'6" 3wt built on a solid Blue Halo blank. While it is not transparent, the solid Charcoal color turned out nice with the Charcoal wraps and Charcoal colored Winn grip.
The Black Pearl Recoil guides and black reel seat brought it all together.
What a sweet casting rod and perfect for roll casting.

FOR SALE $350 !!!!!!! SOLD !!!!!!!

LOOP 890-4

Took this off the dryer this morning. I've had two of these blanks in an 8wt and a 10wt that I've been waiting to build when time allowed. Threw the 8wt on the bench the other night and knocked it out.
This one is the 8wt 9' LOOP Cross S1 blank. Wrapped in a desert tan to match the tan colored Winn grip that I decided to go with.
Black pearl recoil guides and used American Tackle reel seat in black with carbon fiber insert. Finished with Flex Coat Light build.
This rod is for sale if interested.

Finished the 8' 5wt Blue Halo fiberglass build. The color is So Blue that it looks like a light saber in the sun.
Custom carbon fiber wrapped grip with blacked out reel seat with a carbon fiber insert. Guides are Black Pearl Recoil.
Wrapped the guides in white silk thread to give it the clear look like I was wanting. Actually looks like only the finish is holding on the guides.
This is going to be a fun trout fighting rod to fish.
