Nice work that reel seat looks real good. Have you gotten a chance to cast it yet? What blank did you build it on? I got a great deal of satisfaction building my rods.

Very nice job, particularly the wraps. This is the area where the learning curve can be quite gradual on the first few rods for many people. Yours look very nice!
