Until Belmo posts some pics of his previous work, I think this discussion is rather academic.

All I know is I wouldn't bid on something sight unseen...my .02

 

 

 

 

with no guarantee of when it will be built???  How much extra do i need to pay for the components?   Lets face it the guy has a reputation of being a no show.  Nice gesture but he should build the rod and let people bid. Hate to have people waiting forever.

What blank?

Length? Rating? 1 piece? 

Lami XRA1084. 2 piece. A very nice 9-foot blank that is being donated by Tim -- it's a Sandy leftover for him. It makes a great light surf rod, either for high surf or (even better) for quieter estuarine waters. It's very light, and I think when new the blank sold for over $250. So after I've built it, it might be worth almost $200. 

 

I think I'll use a wooden grip, hose clamps, and a size 50 butt guide. This thing is going to be nice....

I would like to suggest  a roller tip.

And three coats of Flex Coat on the entire blank. :th:

Come on Bob you sound grumpy. Fish will turn on Monday with the NE at 14 mph and these cold temps coming in.
