    OK, here is the deal. I have another set of 5 rods going to Scott for re-wrap.

    3 of them are very straight forward re-wraps with some flame work.

    2 of these are project rods. I have had 2 Calstar West Coast Series WCDH-6480C Deck Hand Rods rated 30-60#s but never liked the Organge/Yellowish color of the blank nor the mint green trim thread work.

    So here is the deal Scott - The rods get shipped tomorrow. The 3 re-wraps should be done in my colors with some flame work.

    Now for the FUN PART - The 2 Calstar rods - YOU HAVE FULL ARTISTIC LICENSE - You know I don't like the dumb blank color or the wrap color. I would like reels seats. So here is the deal. Send me back something that doesn't even look the same. You choose colors, you choose, guides, reel seat - hell you even choose method of wrap - traditional, acid whatever it is ALL UP TO YOU.

    OK
    NOW IT's YOUR TURN
    LETS SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO ! ! !

    You all know Scott's philosophy is Function before Form meaning Functionality before looks. Think we all agree he is good at doing both.

    Carni - Are you saying I have no patience man :D :lol: :eek:

    OK, here is the gross colors and stuff he has to work with. If they come back looking anything like they do now he has failed.

    OMG some one payed attention to what I had to SAY!!! oh it is a good day oh a good day indeed!! hehehe

    I wouldn't think it if I didn't see headers like OK SCOTT LET'S SEE PICS or FLIPPER FINALLY GOT ME SOME PICS!!! heheheh. Those words come back to haunt hehehe.

    One thing I can say and not a shot at any one but if you don't let the creator know what your looking for you could end up with pink and purple poka dots. Have some input then let them go wild with it. Have you ever seen a home or auto make over show where the person comes in and says "oh ya it is......great.....I love what you did...with.....what did you do here that is.....great" like a bad script from a porno or something.

    Ahhh a god point Carni although I have worked with Scott for over 4 years now and these two rods I had tried to sell in the past with no luck. Cost was to high to sell to folks back there and these type of rods just aren't the ticket out here. I only wanted to sell them off as I hated the color of those blanks and wraps. So I figured why not have them re-wrapped and since I will have to buy reels for them anyway why not let Scott go crazy and if I don't like them then they get cheap reels. If I do like them then they get nice reels. I am sure they will get nice reels.

    Oh and Joey, if they come back acid wrapped - well - I will use them for bottom fishing and digging these guys out of the rocks although I don't think they are that stout.

    I am hoping this is gonna be a fun thread and want to see how it progresses.

    I will either see the finished products when you do here on the board or when they arrive and I take them out of the rod tubes.

    Oh yeah, Scott I need those first three back ASAP as it's fishing time baby and they are my go to rods so hurry up and make them nice.

    Are they done yet - Oh wait they haven't shipped yet - another 2 hours before that happens.

    Batty I remember back when you used to be such a nice young man. Then you got your license and driving around and your truck became more important than anything else to you.

    You stopped fishing, sold off your gear, sold your rod wrapping machine and now look at you. Wishing bad things on me, telling Joey to straighten up. Batty, Batty, Batty what are we gonna do with you?

    You need to take up fishing again man.

    NO PINK RODS - NO POKADOTS - NO WEIRD STUFF

    Stay true Scott my man.

    You're all just jealous thats all.

    :elefant: Maybe you been drinking and have seen PINK ELEPHANTS - Who Knows heheehe....

    I havent sold all my fishing gear. I still have the basics.
    And a POS rod built by Scott is still 100 times better then a good factory rod. WHen you drop it or scratch it it wont hurt as much.


    As for the acid part, its only a bad wish if you look at it that way:D
