Looks a nice job to me, as long as the rings are firmly held in place and the rod can withstand a shower of rain or two I'm sure all will be well, and I bet it is going to look a whole lot better with a nice bend in it when you hook your first carp in the margins.

Thanks for the info, Danesman.
I'm thinking re-whipping a rod of mine, but not having done it before I'm not too sure what grade to use. It will be a question of having a go and seeing what the result is. :)

Cheers.
