    txseadog is about to wrap my blank from seeker and it is going to be my cow rod. Going to match it with my Avet Pro 30. I have to get it connected to one of the big YFT invading the gulf this season. You guys will be drooling over my stick. It's bigger than yours

    Pope,
    I hope your new stick is behind the two he's building for me. Come on Seadog, pull a couple of all nighter's and make us happy. I promise I won't drool over my stick. LOL

    Pope you will have to wait a few weeks as I've got to finish a a few rods for the Cinco trip before starting on this one. Then I'm going to take a break from rod building for a month or so...

    Pope,
    Isn't that a 6'3" 80 pound blank? What kind of butt, guides and seat are going onto the blank? Just curious.

    Yes it is. Slick butt, 15.5" foregrip, turbo guides, not entirely sure about the seat as far as manufacturer, but alum.

    How long will the butt be? With a fore grip that long I am guessing the butt will be about 8" to 10" inless the rod is half grip!

    I will take some photos tomorrow. The butt is 12" and the reel seat (right under the reel) is 16" from the end of the butt. I like the long foregrip for using the rail. The rod is beautiful! The most gorgeous piece of fishing equipement I own. Thanks again Kevin. The collection is alomost complete. 80lb trolling/bait/chunk rig, 50lb jig/bait rig, 40lb casting/jig/bait rig, 80lb bottom drop rig, and miscellaneous thises and thats.
