Alex,
what blank are you going for?
Special reelseat..has to be an ALPS then ;)..mmmmmmmmmmmmm

I use the Ti coated snakes...very nice looking...They look good with a titanium tipping to the whipping and a Ti reel seat..all very classy indeed :)

I will be using them on the blank I bought from Mike the other day :)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Owwwwwwwww...fast blank that :) I thought it was considerably higher modulous tham IM6 though? Is it not the Titanium reinforced one? Fulling Mill used to use this blank for there top of the range rod. A couple of the Pike lads use the 9 weight from Temple Fork...sold under the Lefty Kreh name.  Good choice coz its a darn good blank for the money.

Love the reel seat!!!

Thats going to be one very nice outfit :)

Keep us posted :)

Hi Rob

No it is just the TiCr I went for (TF B05 90 4 T) as it is only 1.82oz as against the 1.93oz of the (TF B05 90 4 TX) Titanium Chromium Coated version, want to try one of Sandy tips on it :wink :wink

Hopefully it will turn out OK.
