    Tried some new stuff on this calico rod for Tommy, It's a GUSA 76L blank, Minima real seat, No fore grip. I've been wanting to do an abstract crosswrap so I did one over a rosewood grain inlay. The front is a rosewood inlay with the section cut out for his logo. It's supposed to be like a knothole in the wood with the logo showing through and on a larger rod would really be a cool effect, Hard to see it on such a skinny blank though. The grips are shaped urethane foam with X wrap covering. These are actually lighter than carbon fiber omitting the resin and CF
