It's been a while since I posted some pics so here are a few of a Forecast 764-4 that I just finished this week. I have opted to omit any form of inscription on my personal rods from now on and went with single thread inlay measuring marks instead; 12", 14" and 16". I fish this rod with a WF6 for bass out of my yak and it fishes that line very nicely upto 45 to 50 feet.

Went with a reverse half wells grip that I fine tuned to my liking; PacBay S1 with titanium slide rings; cocobolo insert; and royal blue wraps with white NCP trim; Felx coat lite finish no CP; Guides are all single foot alconites.

I had a bit of trouble with the seat insert as it had a very heavy uneven finish so I had to sand it down, steel wool, and then apply some polish. Then I had a problem with the hardware having some burrs and scratching the insert so I had to remove the butt cap, and polish the insides of the slide rings.

Overall, very happy with the new/ rebuilt stick.
