    I had a blast building the rod and it turned out well for my first attempt. Lots of problem areas that I can see, somewhat of a perfectionist. The biggest problem was getting the wraps to be square with the blank.

    The Green wraps in the pictures don't do it justice, the best pic for color is the one showing the last eye and tip top.
