I'm just about finished w/ this ATC(Advanced Tubular Concepts, not AmTak) build. This is the first of these blanks that I've built on. Very nice blank. This one is their PV 703, which is new this year. 8-15 lb;5/16-5/8 lure. I'm building this one for a Loomis GLX user, and was forced to keep the threadwork simple. I am sneaking in the weave, tho. I also picked up a PV 702, which will be next to build, if the CTS order doesn't arrive soon. Jerry

Ellis, as I told Randall in a pm, I'll know more after it's finished. I'm real interested in what the MD says that I'm building for. He's an awesome fisherman w/ artys, and I'm trying to show him there's something besides Loomis out there, and also the custom aspect. My initial impression is it's a higher modulus graphite than the Shikari III 703... definitely smaller diam butt, but slightly 'stiffer". The spec called for a 4.5 tiptop, but a 5.0 fit. That's why I keep lots of different sized tiptops! Time from order to receiving the ATC's was ~ 9 wks. Hope the distributors(Bingham and Fishsticks4you) get stocked up soon! Jerry

Gee Whizz, Jerry,


Blue and White??...now if somehow you could just spruce it up a bit, and sneak in a little off-colored, darker, Tennessee Orange :):):)

AS USUAL, ONE OF YOUR "IF YOU CAN'T DO IT RIGHT, DON'T DO IT" WORK OF ART. I mean, some of your stuff is like some of the hundreds of lures I have...just simply too good lookin' to subject it to abuse! D#@@ good work Jerry!!
