BLUE HALO 8' 5wt 3pc

Just finished this one and delivered it to it's new owner.
Built on a Blue Halo Gen2 glass blank in Jade color. Custom carbon fiber grip and wrapped the recoil guides in a teal colored thread.

This thing looks like a light saber out in the light.

BLUE HALO 7'6" 3pc 3/4 wt

My friends at Blue Halo sent down a couple of their new Generation 2 fiberglass blanks. This one is a 7' 6" 3/4 wt that is translucent in color.

Wrapped the grip in carbon fiber and matched the reel seat to it. Used a Black Pearl colored Recoil guide for a stripper and black snake guides the rest of the way.

Wrapped the whole thing in Canary Yellow and added a snake guide for the hook keeper.

Finished it up with Flex Coat light build. I think it came out great and its almost ready to ship back to Blue Halo for someone to enjoy.

Really like the way the guide shows through the finish against this blank.

Here is the finished rod.
