The Katana. All alps rollers, ALPS UB6 straight butt, 130lb blank, 7'9". Born an LBSF rod but may identify as a Marlin or tuna rod on weekends. Backwards guides and all.














Built an 80lb rod for my 12/0. 7'6" overall. White blank with red and blue wraps and gold trim. Poly cord butt wrap with a Turks head at the base. Re used #4 butt off a pen trolling rod that got scraped (new). Alps guides with roller.

Originally a 5'11" blank, I cut 3" off the bottom and reinforced it.

Nice work! 

Those look like some serious sticks.  The forgrip on that 130 class looks sharp.  I like the looks of those backwards guides on these bigger rods.

That 80lb rod is a real beast! And of course the 12/0 overhauled by Daron.

Thanks!

That setup is heavy though, I find myself carrying the 12/0 and white rod more often when scouting and having to walk into spots. I only bring the 130's if I know I'll need it or setting up for a couple days.
