20 posts in this topic

I started this build for a buddy of mine. It’s a 12’ CTS vaportrail 3-6oz he will be using at the canal and surrounding areas. 

 

Here are are some pictures for now. Just got done doing the underwrap today. 

 

Layout will go rv25-rv16-kw10m-kw8 

kw8 x how ever many to the tip top. 

 

Tip top used is a Fuji KG ring 8

Looks nice.    Every Build you post there seems to be more building equipment and rods in the background 

 

what type of finish did u put on the underwraps?

 What type of cork did you use under the shrink?

 Yeah it’s accumulating at a very fast pace. Lol 

 

finish used is voodoo d2 and the cork that is used the same stuff you see on surf rods. It’s the 1” cork tape that I cut in half then spiral wrap under the tubing.

very nice job on the trim band work and your finish looks great!  The color scheme isn't for me but your guide work and attention to detail is impressive.

Thank you. I would have chosen a different color as well but I built it for a buddy of mine. 

 

Still learning with every rod I build. But in due time I hope to become as good as a lot of the veterans in here.
