First build for someone other than myself.

13' 6-10lb

Fuji ti sic gunsmoke 

Kl16h 

Kl16

Kl12

Kt10

Kt8

Kt6 (#7total)

Arowana tip ring 8 for easy ice removal

Forecast but, seat and trim

Pro wrap Electra metallic, and silver metallic

The silver metallic separates when worked was a PITA to do the olive branch with.

Others than that was a fun build, first cork lathed grip. 

Slightly heavy on the finish at the hook keeper.

 

Enjoy

Dustyn,

 

I'm no Steelhead float rod builder, I am very intrigued, what centre pin reel is that?

As my daughter would describe it, "It's veeee, veeee pretty"

I'm assuming your layout KL16H KL16 KL12 KT10 was designed to get a straight line from edge of full spool to the KT10?

Yeah, let me start by saying I'm still new at this. 

Its a colville outfitter reel, custom reel builder near buffalo ny. The artwork is from yusniel santos check him out I have a print of his work in my living room.

Diameter of the spool is just under 5"

Definitely a few different ways I could of gone with the guides.

Centerpin guide trains are usually just setup for good static load, if you watch some casting videos you can see why. 
 

these reels are all about getting a perfect drift bobber fishing.
