I finished wrapping the 5/6wt rod today and, as you can see, it's going to be a looker. The translucency of this fiberglass looks so stinkin' awesome! You really have to see it in the light to appreciate it. Not only that, but the color of this blank is really sweet and reminds me of a bamboo rod. It's the retro look I was going for and I can't wait to fish this rod.
I've already applied the first coat of varnish and all I can say is I'm really glad I went with this color combination. I'm not going to have a lot of time to work on the rod this week, but I plan to have it completed by mid-week next week. I'll have more pics up then.
