After posting the end of year Pink Lady and I immediately got an order so here it is. This one is a little lighter. The blank is a Seeker Hercules Athena GTS 70M 30-60. The reel seat is an Alps centra lock gun metal and guides are Alps 50 lb class.

Nice work Dwight!

The mermaid decal is a nice touch, given the theme.

Thanks to all. Custom building for me anyway is a reflection of personality. My style is built for battle first and then I dress them but do not like a lot of real busy stuff so the wrap style is clean and simple. Decals are whatever the customer wants.

And John, I polled a few of the local lady anglers on the mermaid and they all liked it for the theme.

Very nice rod, the trimar black and gold is a nice touch. Is the glass pink on those seeker blanks or is it painted pink? Seeker has been putting out some painted blanks now. I just finished my first painted seeker,will be interesting to see how it holds up. Sheridan

The Hercules Athena is a Hercules grey then painted silver and then pink on top of silver and in the sun light you get some silver sparkle from it.
