LOL, not that was funny but thanks Steve, I really like the way to build your bamboo rods and put them on good use, want me to experiment with that too but not much bamboo or pole plants to chose on the Baja Desert other than a big cactus LOL



Nice job on the finish! I'd say you have it down to a science and I love how there is no build-up around the guide feet. Your workmanship is professional and I'm with Alan, you need your own board.
Dave

thanks for the kind words, I have something against those big bulky epoxy build-up on the guide feet on some rods, time will tell if the epoxy I put on the feet tunnels is enough to protect on the long run.

this wasnt a full rebuild so, I wont be opening a new thread, I just changed some broken guides on a stock Eglass seeker "mexican edition" factory built, pretty cool to see this edition factory build.
anyway, just installed some new chrome boat guides, the guy wanted to keep the rod with the original guides and wraping job, so I didnt touched any of the guides that werent broken.
