Well I finally did it! I finished my first....

Got a nice lami GSB136 2MH from BC (Thanks Tons for your help and advice)

specs: Fuji HNSG SIC guides 20,16,16,the rest 12's plus UST 12-16 tip, Fuji DPSH Heavy duty reel seat,

cut down fish finder butt cap finished off with rubber o-rings,cushioned baseball bat hand grip tape,

and gudebrod 001 blk size D +#524HT metallic silver 9002 size A thread wraps.

Thank you Billy 40 for the encouragement to wrap my own. My dyslexia altered the pattern I was aiming

for but, I like how it came out even better!

I'm using it with an Abu 7000cl with blk sideplates.

guide set up. This truley is as addidtive as a drug habit icon14.gif

Nicely done icon14.gif

Was the the butt wrap a planned thing ? Or was it just wrap this one that one ,whatever, we'll see how it comes out ?

It looks great either way.

I have the same rod on the bench right now.

KML...I started to wrap what I thought would be a cirlce wrap,however.....I have a touch of dyslexia

and it did not materialize. When I noticed I had F@&*ed up beyond the point of no return, I kept going

with a wing and a prayer. I went way to far

and started taking thread off till I got what was left......begginers luck? tongue.gif
