Almost there Neil; superb finish on the end caps and reel fittings; Great write up and I think they should all be ready for the Spring carp trip ....

Absolutely superb workmanship. Well done Neil, that's what's called making a rod from scratch.

That's just amazing! I need to repeat myself - you should make a book out of this project. I'd certainly buy a copy.

The dark green anodised reel seats look fabulous.
