You're a magician Dave. You must have freaked out about the decal but it could not have turned out better.   Could you tell who made the blank?

I'm really not sure of the blank. I didn't take the ferrule off so I'm not sure of the wall thickness at the butt. It did have an interesting weave pattern with a heavy white pigment I found under the large roller. I'm assuming it was a fairly good blank as were the hardware and grip. I sure wish I knew more about the rod. There were so many different brands that came out of Florida over the years.

Next project is a 7'-9" Gator-Glass that has been hanging up in my cellar for the last 20+ years. I love those old gators. This one will be used for jigging pollack in 250-300' of water. Think I'll get carried away with the butt wrap on this one.
