    This is a rewrap of a Sabre Gra-Fast 196-7 with Fuji Sic guides spinning rod. I purchased this blank many years ago and decided it was time for a rewrap.
    The base is dark blue pigment and the marbeling is whisper blue metallic pigment. This marbeling stuff is fun and anything is possible.

    Thanks for looking,
    Tom

    Really nice and good looking spinning rode. You accomplished very well work on this rode. Marbeling using blue metallic pigment which looks great and attractive.

    That doesn't look like a marble it looks like a fishing rod. Sorry stupid joke I know. Nice work though it looks like it turned out great.
