New obsession forming New

I reached a milestone in my glass obsession recently when I completed glass rod no.150.

Obviously there are a good number more in total but I thought the 150th glass rod was momentous. It was only 2012 when Mike got the first Epic blanks across and this journey began, maybe 2013 when it started to become an obsession *smiley-tongue-out*

This one I did on what is regarded as one of the all time classic, glass tapers, a Steffen 8í 3/4wt in 3pcs. I made it the way I fancied doing it and I have to confess Iím already rather fond of it. In fact this is Steffen no.3 and itís fast becoming a new obsession :X1

totally different colour, to the ones ive done before, but it actually looks really nice in the flesh *smiley-love*

Not shared a rod on here for a while, so thought id let you all see this one before it appears in the trophy shots this year :X2
