    Phishy's new rod that he will get delivered on Pineapple's birthday charter. Rainshadow ISWB945 blank 15-30lb. At 4oz. might be the lightest 30lb stick I've ever held...Rod is going to have Avet MXJ 2spd MC reel which Avet switched the foot to the Fuji type foot so he could fish the rod with a Fuji trigger reel seat. Cork grips, ALPS guides. This is a super light, mean stick. Hopefully Mitch can do some ronkie slaying with it this season...
    Tiger wrap in grey,black and pink under, with black over and two sacrificial threads..Juvenille whiteseabass sticker in between the tiger layers in a technique we borrowed(with permission of course)from Doc Ski. This rod also has Throop wraps under each guide and the hookeeper. Once the guides are on I am gonna take it to Doc's to do the epoxy work on them. I'm hoping I will get to see Mitchcatch a nice seabass on it this year, or at least hear about it...:crying:

    These will be bi-sexual rods so i can share with them lol

    Far as the cork handle goes, John made my last rod with a cork handle..and everytime i picked it up i thought to myself, this rod would be bad ass if it had a higher rating...got me thinking..the GX-8 was so perfect how if fit my hand..Thats the cool thing about getting custom rods..i dont have to settle for something off the shelf tailored to suit the masses..i can get something just for my specs...I will admit im pretty excited about the blank and how light it is. I plan on giving it the work out on Batray duty first thing..if it can handle a 65+ Santa Rosa batray..it can handle anything..

    BTW..John...i told you before....but how cool is it to have the legendary Doc-Skii helping you the way he is..and now hes going to get his hands on my rod...Cant tell you how excited i am..

    And as i said in the BD thread..its all about the pink..i cant help if you homophobs cant deal with it...its a sick color pattern..One of a kind :)
