I also got hit, 1st time for me
I have waited weeks and applied a 2nd coat with no adverse problems whatsoever.
To start with there is no such thing as an Anvil vise. Anvil was the name of the company marketing the Apex and Atlas Vises. Both vises were manufactured by Wolff Ind, which as a couple of years ago...
For both of them combined?
You wouldn't be a bit prejudiced would you Larry?
There are a lot of variables concerning this question.
Grip: Custom turned= glue up, shaping, inletting, sizing to blank
Reel seat: turning and finishing of insert if skeleton style
Dont rule out Aztec Anglers as a very good source for guides also. They are very informed and will put you on fish.
Don't overlook the Wolff Ind Atlas and Anvil vises also,
For snake guides, I primarily use the Snake brand universals. No prep required, and the concave design on the foot lets them sit very well on the blank. For the single foot, I use a variety of...
While I build however the client wants, even my own personal 8wt has single foot zirconium guides on it, and has never posed a single issue. My wife's new SHX 9' 5wt that I am building her for the...
12858Thanks for the Kudo's, unfortunately I do not do well with splitting thread, or normal dubbing, so I needed an alternative. Also it would take a ton of time for me to do the full body's like...

The day was...
Ain't no reason to really know how the 1000's of factory rods are built, professional builders build custom rods, not factory clones. That same rod throughout its lifetime has had no less than 3...
It was done right the first time, he told the builder he wanted it slightly larger than the factory grip. I know this builders reputation, and you get what you ask for.
Appears to me that you told the builder you wanted it slightly larger than the factory grip.
Color Guard is my choice
I have not forgot about doing this for those interested, have a fair amount of reel seats and inserts to get turned and into tomorrow's mail. I am also off on mondays so I will make the time to get...
Let me get the jig down this weekend and I will will try and get some pics to describe my process
Thats not a family, that a team
I slide mine down one leg before I begin the furling, held to the center upright with a safety pin and o/ring on the upright.
I can assure you that Jason's approach to this is quite effective and works very well. I have the exact same setup and have done quite a few using it. While the 3 stage of the tutorial is still to...
If its a furled leader, there is no knot involved
Depending on which particular Lemke seat that I sell, my std bore is .375, .4375. or .500, and am working on a mandrell for .312 for the smaller rod blanks
If its nicked its more than likely fractured and more than likely will break.
