OK, it is done and ready to fish on the July 3rd trip. 50-80 pound blank. Alps radial gimbal, Alps size 22 aluminum reelseat, Fuji IC MNSG SiC guides and top sizes 40-30-25-20-16-12-12 with a size 12 top. Threads are Gudebrod dark blue nylon for the overwraps with metallic silver, gold and blue steel for underwraps, bands, etc. Foregrip is hypalon and reargrip is split EVA. Grips are patterned after the OTI 7 1/2 foot rods as I found their ergonomics were perfect for me and looked great. I am pleased as this is my second build. It will be matched to a stella 20000 FA seen in the pics. I must thank Billy 40 and STxFisherman for their help, tips, and ideas while building this rod.
