custom 9wt rod for auction

ok guys, let's bid it up to support the board!!! no, it's not gonna be built on a "big name" blank, but it is an nice IM6 blank I got at the UFT meeting. it is a great looking golden brown, like the St. Crouix imperials. it is more toward a medium-fast flex. it'll be made to the best of my abilities(I've built 7 before). I'll use good quality snakes, sic stripping guides, top quality cork and a double uplocking black aluminum reel seat. you can choose the color thread I'll build it with. the components alone are worth at least $100.00!!! this will be a great striper rod. I'll have it in your hands before the beginning of March, with luck much sooner(in January). Tom D
P.S. I almost forgot... I'll guarentee this for a month after the first REAL fishing starts in the spring. so figure till mid-June(most years). but not if you slam it in a door!!!lol
