Had a good shark fishing trip week before last. Stopped by a roadside sale and picked up an old beat up boat rod on the way home. Reworked the roller guides. Removed and inspected the wood handle/reinstalled (It was fine), added a shark decal and name. Urethaned the handle. Restored and sealed the cork upper. Re-Wrapped the guides and new artwork. Added a gimble amd flex-coated everything. My second best shark rod for $20 and supplies...and had fun doing it.

That came out pretty nice. Always nice when you can reuse the components... Jeff

Just like a baseball closer.  Good save.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Nice! Looks bullet-proof!
Great to have projects like that, it appears that you're an old salt with the refurb work and made short time of it all!
I am not experienced and have two refurbishment / customisation projects that I will be taking my time with in our winter (June / July). The pre-prep / research / learning has been thoroughly enjoyable to date.
Thanks for sharing.
