Some of you guys have a real eye for colors on rods. I've found it difficult to pick something sharp that is different than what everybody else has. black and red, black gold ,or black silver are standard. I know they will work ,but I wanted to try something different. It's a white blank. My favorite standup rod that I use with a penn 50 international. I built this 20 or so years ago and just stripped it last night .Now it's ready for a rebuild and I need to pick some colors.
Here's what I have for thread: Any suggestions?

Anyone else?

Well after foolin around a little more ,I really like these colors. I wouldn't have picked this combination in a million years:D. This guide isn't going to stay .I bought a set of gunmetal SIC's on ebay that haven't arrived yet. I think they are going to be slick lookin with these colors. THANKS Dave. My favorite meat stick will be ready in no time, for another 20 years of beatin' up on charlie.:) I just don't know if I will.

Here's the rod done ,Except the finish. tomorrow
The pics don't really do this rod justice,I'm not much of a photographer. I think it's one of the sexyest rods in my "fleet". Thanks again Dave N. for picking these colors.
And thanks to everyone else who replyed. I tried a couple of the other suggestions. this one just did it for me though.

Very nice Noarth coast. Trying to get that visiual on an all black blank with gunmetal guides. I'm also trying to get a visiual on using gold as opposed to silver as you have a gold reel. This configuration would look great matched to an Avet 50W in silver:)
