8wt LOOP Cross S1

Started another LOOP build. This one is on a LOOP Cross S1 blank in 9ft and 8wt. Perfect for chasing redfish.
Winn custom grip and fighting butt is going to be a sweet addition to this rod. Black reel seat paired with black Recoil guides. Not sure on the color of thread yet but it will pull it all together.

Let me know what you think of the grip choice.


Recently started building a 5wt fiberglass fly rod on a Blue Halo blank. I've always liked the color of this one and decided to put the carbon fiber wrapped grip on it and black it out with reel seat and guides done to match the grip. I will wrap it in silk thread that will end up being clear on the blank.

 I'll post up pictures of the completed rod.
