I'm not a rod builder so what do I know? But here's my 02c. anyway

I would definitely be concerned about the lack of flex in the handle and also added weight. It might look pretty but I don't think it will make a practical fishing tool.

There's a reason why cork has stood the test of time. But from what I hear, the good stuff is getting hard to come by. You might look at some of the synthetics but be prepared for some 'funny looks' from the traditionalists
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
