Wow, great looking combo there.  Would be perfect for crappie and other panfish.

Wow Jeff - that's really nice. I've got to try a rod build when I get everything else caught up. Thanks for posting that.  -  Jimmer

 Sal, I'm building this rod & another for two brothers who's father passed 2 or so years ago.
   
   For those who may not know...
  Love building rods. I am at present taking more work.
 If your kicking around the idea of a custom rod or you have an old favorite you like to see brought back to life.  Please send me a PM ... Jeff

really cool build compadre Jeff

after searching for a thing on my miscellneous box of rod building I found two of those of those TN grips/reelseat, identical to yours and also a bunch of cork rings, so, with your permit, I might do something alike if I ever build a UL BTS rod from my fly blank.

Beautiful workmanship!  And I really like the nice touch of using X-Wrap to create a reel seat to keep the cork from getting gouged or worn, this is the first time I've seen that and it looks like a great idea! - john

I bet you can sling a little beetlespin or Roostertail a mile with that thing.

Thanks Fellas, not building many UL rods as of yet. You know what building this rod reminds me of the fun I had fishing ultra lights as a kid. I get time I'm building myself one probably a 2 pc. Lamiglass. I've a 7'6" St Croix UL now I'm wanting a longer one... Jeff
