Nice!  How much did you cut the blank and what size butt?

Around 13 or 14 inches if I remember right, I have the section hanging around somewhere. It’s 6’ with the butt. Size is a #4 Alps

Looks great! And beefy. How did you wrap the guides so it stays on during a tuna fight? Is it just like any other rods except using beefier threads?

Thanks brother, the rollers are double wraps. I do an under wrap then wrap the roller on top. I don’t have a power wrapper so it takes awhile to to wrap one guide, lots of thread. Here’s a pic of a guide sitting on the under wrap before it gets wrapped from a smaller calstar
