Another episode that shows how the whole rod being piece together. It started as a Graphite sheet that cut to spec of the rod then roll up to form a rod pieces.

I saw that episode last night at about 12:30am. Had to fight to stay awake but the show was cool. Nice to see that it was a quality rod.

There was and might still be a nice video on Seeker's website that shows how they make all their rods. I thought it was pretty cool. Missed this episode on the fly rod.
