You can use either Fuji SIC or Hardaloy but use an SIC Tip:


Spinning - 40HH,30H,25H,25M,20M,20M plus a BPST20-XX tip.


Conventional - HNSG or HNLG 20,16,16,16,16,12,12,12,12 plus a UST tip.


Here is a short list of basic tools:


single edge blades or exacto knife


thread burnishing tool


white china marking pencil


spray bottle, cheap isopropyl alcohol and industrial "C" fold paper towels for clean up. You can get the paper towels at Staples.


10X10 ceramic tile and thin flexible putty knife to mix epoxy glue.


several sheets of sandpaper in grits from 120-400.


Drywall abrasive sanding screen in medium to shape grips.


Round wood rasp to ream holes in grip material


1/2 inch masking tape


Inexpensive (<$3 each) 1 inch fan brushes.


Headband magnifier when wrapping.

Can't speak for the 132-1 but I have a Goldberg 132-2 and it's a nice casting blank. Sweet spot is 3 oz (if fishing bait, you sure you want a 132-1? The sweet spot there will be lower). Loads very nicely with large heavy surf plugs; big SOL poppers and Lex plugs and so on. Not - IMHO - a real "pendulum" blank, but a nifty plug rod, very easy to load with the preferred weight range.
