    SH1024-2 Clear Gloss 8'6" 2 8-12 lb. 5" 11" 18" 27" 37" 48.25" 62.5"

    i have not taken any notes on any rods. i should start.. i just finished one of these for my friends dad 2 days ago.. it is still sitting on my dryer waiting for him to come get it..
    i had to cheat a little with the #8 fl guide coming off the #12 vs3.. just the way the rod laid out... usually i can get a #10 vs3 to lay out and transition straight down to #7 or #6 fl guide..
    starting on the butt,, eva cap, 7 inch rear grip, forecast #16 black spin seat, 6 1/4 inch reversed half well fore grip,
    from the #6 tip top, #6fl guides @ 4-7/8, @ 10-1/8, @ 16-1/8, @ 22-5/8, @ 29-3/4, #8fl guide @ 37, #12 vs3 @ 45-1/4, #16 vs3 @ 55-3/8, #25 vs3 @ 67 3/4.
    i set this up for a shimano stradic 3000fi.. 23 1/4 from spool lip to #25 vs3 guide.. it should fish pretty much any 2000-2500 sized reels good as the 3000fi is about the same size..
    i did it in black guides, black seat, medium blue A thread with metallic ELECTRA silver A trim bands and no CP.. simple, pretty, light rod.. i kind of wish it was mine..
    it would have a inch shorter rear grip to clear my fore arm when pitching and swinging hardware while holding the meaty part of grip up front.. i would eliminate the hook keeper and melt a small hole through one side at a angle under the front hood with a glowing hot finish nail.. get that thing completely out of my way for fighting fish and no hanging up line on it..
