This was an Outer Banks Outfitters 9' Graphite Surf Rod that I chopped to 7'3" and turned into a light weight popping rod. After being cut down and re-epoxyed, you really can't tell that it was a factory rod.







The top section was still rolling so the pics are a little blury.







I used black paint to color the base coat of epoxy. I feel like it really made the colors stand out. I haven't ever tried this before, but I think it really made a difference.

Looks nice.

What tool would you use to remove a reel seat?
Dremel tool and cutting disk?

I used a jigsaw, but I definately don't recommend it. Dremel would have probably done a much cleaner job. Any excess glue and epoxy scraped off with a razor blade.
