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...

I will say this. I NOW understand why top end quality rods cost so much made by a quality and well known Rod Craftsman. And its not because they are making money hands over foot to build it...
After going and buying the Blank, the top quality Rod guides, the Eva foam, the quality reel seat, rod butt, string, glue etc... I have about $300 tied up in it JUST IN PARTS.
