What does acid wrapped mean? Good looking rod. Did you turn the handle?
If so have you ever thought of laminating one up out of exotic woods or multi dyed wood like some gun stocks?

Acid wrap (Spiral warp) is when the guides are rotate around the blank, this suppose to make the rod load a lot of efficient and when jigging the line won't get caught on the tip top.
