    King rod build #2

    Used John Gs recommendation for a king rod, Batson bsw80l blank, Pac Bay XBSG guides 60,40,30,25,and 16. Reel seat, Fuji FPSM 20. Grips one F0412B and two F0410B. Built a power wrapper, this makes life a lot easier. Ordered every thing from Kathy, at the Rod Room.

    very nice, I used that blank when I built my first king rod. Are you using braced guides all the way?

    It's been along time since I built a rod, and I just learned a new trick from you "those O rings to temporarily hold the guide"
    NICE!
