    Nice work trev, I have fond memories of that rod, it wasn't new when I got it, it belonged to a bloke that used to fish with Alan Jackson I think he used to go on MOG trips with a gang of them

    put this one to bed, finished 2nd coat of hi build.
    maybe i should have rebuilt it with a longer spigot support on the base of top section.... 20160403_135037.jpg 20160403_134959.jpg 20160403_134953.jpg
    looking forward to using it as a summer clean / moderate ground rod.

    picked up a couple of old blanks to practice on today, give me something to do before summer season starts...
