    Here is my latest rod I bought this old blank at the swap meet for 6.00 dollars i liked the action on it it's a two piece blank and it's a 10' this what i used for this blank i used a split grip with Alps guides and Gray and Black A thread and Madeira for the Black Widow spider pattern taken from Billy's Book i also made a Doc's black widow spider weave Acid wrapped with the first 3 guides double foot and the rest single foot. see what your guys think.
