Sea Trout Distance rod #2
« on: November 26, 2013, 18:43:52 PM »
Got mine finished yesterday, still not cast it yet but feels in the hand as if if will do the business..



Blue trim to match Helios 2 reel seat spacer


H2 reel seat & Kev Muir handle



Hope to get #3 done this next week, this will be a little different as Mike wants his built with snakes, be interesting to get a comparison between the three rods once all are done.

Cheers

1st cast today.  Lighter in the hand than #1 and maybe a little softer which I'm not sure is a bad thing for me.  Be very interesting to get some CCS data for it and #3 once it is finished.  Very pleased with this one  :cool:
