where did you found that eva grip? 

 

the rod looks  really great

It’s not EVA. You can make it out of cork and shrink tube.

I saw before that some guys are using shrink tube and cork to make some cool effects like yours, but then I saw some tiny white dots on your grip and normally the shrink tube is really flat blank, so I though it was an EVA material

you really make the ends of the tube soo smooth, congrats

That would be dry skin and dust. I should have wiped it down with alcohol and used compressed air before the pictures but it’s fine. 
 

thank you

I like the threadwork you did on the guides. What guide train did you use?

 

Thank you. 
 

The guide layout used is Fuji NGC. 
kw30-kw25-kw20-kw12 then a few kw8 runners to the tip top.
