    I haven't quite finished this build yet, but I wanted to get some pics of my latest marbling attempt. I went with a blue base to match the theme of the rest of the rod swirled in some black and added a touch of silver. I like how it turned out. It's alot of blue, but that doesn't bother me and I think theres enough black and silver to break it up.

    I've got a couple more things to do and 1 more coat of epoxy and then I'll get pics of the whole thing. This is gonna be a beast of a lightweight set-up (relatively speaking)

    Allright got it done! Marbling pics are hard to get...for me at least. I can't seem to get the colors to appear on the camera the way they do in real life. Anyway here's the combo.

    I wish I would have had some of these logos made up in silver to match the rods that I don't use gold on.

    Looks great Red. Good idea with the blue base. Now all you need to do is replace that quantum with an avet and learn how to fish!! :)

    Whatever...when this reel turns out to be a hit just remember who was in on the ground level! Plus, sadly, I lost my dealer direct connection and couldn't afford the Avet :(
