Nice work thanks for sharing.
Beautiful work, i like the reel seat on that first rod i turn my own inserts and wonder what skeleton nickle silver hardware you used. Are they Struble, Bellinger where did you purchase them.
Beautiful work, like the variegated thread wraps.
Thank you, nice match for that blank color.
Beautiful, what color thread is that. You used CP on it i assume.
Very nice build, your work is beautiful.
I believe all Madison's were single tip rods, if it is like new they sell for around $400.00 and up.That is a good price. From the serial #'s Orvis would tell you when it was bought, and by who.

May the power of prayer get you through this difficult time, as it has for my son with his bone marrow transplant.You are on my prayer list.
I see by your profile you do photography, a picture would be nice to see where the brakes are, and also the model number, name of the rod.
I have repaired some with a spigot ferrule if...

Thank you Joe, for the fast reply, and the information on what grit I should be finishing off the seat with.The blank was started off with Caribbean Blue 3/4 x 3/4 x 5" That I picked up at Wood...
