I finished my first rod last night. Except for the name, specs, etc... The rod was a H&H IM6 7'6'' 5WT Charcoal color. I used red thread without color preserver. The rod actually turned oout better than I could have hoped for! It casts extremely nice for me. Thanks to everyone who helped me on my guide spacing thread, and everything else. Here's some pic's, I will post more when I get the name on.

Feel free to give me any suggestions too.
I am looking into trying a bamboo rod for my second rod. Should I do a few more graphite before I try bamboo? Thanks you for any input
