Well they say the 3rd times the charm and I guess there is something to that after all. My 3rd Two Strip Quad aka(PMQ) turned out pretty sweet. The cosmetics are still lack luster but atleast I've developed a taper I can work with. It will be a nice little goggle-eye pole. I paired it with a cheap little pflueger loaded with 1/2 of a DT 6wt cortland 444. Now I can say I can cast the whole line!
