Now building two rods....
Sage Xi2 8WT w/ ALPS and guides (TBD)
TFO TiCrX 9WT w/ ALPS and Single Foot TiCH-Blue Guides
Glued and turned the handle for the TFO, here's pic w/ reelseat and handle together.
Small flat spot in taper near top of handle I want to blend out a bit more... Otherwise , I like how it came out.
