Back in Glass

Built a 5wt on a Jade colored Blue Halo blank earlier this year for a client.

He is enjoying fishing the new glass rod so much that I was asked to build a duplicate on a Cranberry colored Blue Halo blank for him.
First step was to wrap the handle in carbon fiber.

After applying finish to it and then sanding down, two more coats of finish were applied to give it shine and protection. Then the Black Pearl recoil stripping guide and the snake guides were wrapped in black thread,

Here is the finished rod.

And a look at the two of them together.

Just finished building these three for LOOP USA. They will be going to Baja for Bull Dorado and Roosterfish.
All three built on Loop Cross S1 Flatsman blanks.
Custom carbon fiber grips with American tackle reel seat with carbon insert.
Guides are Recoil Black Pearl stripping and Pac Bay heavy duty black snake guides and tip top.
All were wrapped in Purple Pro Wrap thread from Mudhole tackle.

If anyone is interested in a custom build I have two Loop Cross S1 Flatsman blank available. One in 8wt and the other is a 10wt.
