    Have you been using the Minima guides much and what do you think of them? I used them for strippers on one rod but I haven't tried them for running guides.

    Good project. The grip came out great, nice and tight to the ferrule. I am not familiar with the flexlite guides. Looks like the running guides have the ring pretty high off the blank. I use a small...

    Sevier has a 6' 4/5 tiger eye. I am building one soon if you want a report. Steve, is that a spinning blank? Beautiful with the wood on the grip, blank color and thread color going together.

    Anyone that builds rods know how much love and care went into making that rod for your brother. It looks like he is very proud to show it off to folks that realize that, too. Good job, Kevin.

    Very nice work on the trim bands, Steve. I built a rod for myself on that same blank. If you cast it you are going to make one for yourself, it's sweet with a Airflo 480 compact Skagit.
