I am having this EXACT thing built as I type.
Ive owned the exact rod before. 7'r which seems a bit long for some, but awesome light 80# class rod, great tip for working jigs, One Hell of a Back bone. Calstar E-Glass H Rod.
I'm hoping to get it finished this week and on tuna in Venice by mid September with My Stella 18000 bolted to it....
I'll post picture when its all done.
Also have been looking at the Black Hole blanks that MudHole is now carrying for rod builders...
