Update: So the outfits have been given to the Mrs. for her birthday. I created a photo diary of the evolution of the reels from their arrival at my shop to their completion. I also did a 2 page write up of a little history of the reels with help from the Penn guru Mr. Mike C. The gentleman that performed the rod restoration added his photos as well. The Mrs., as reported from her husband, was overcome with emotion. I think we “done good!” As the gentleman that performed the rod restoration didn’t take the best pictures of the before and after product, the photos I have are not the best. Also, given the beginning condition of the rods, which was unbelievably bad, I think they turned out beautifully although not historically accurate. Attached are a few photos of the rods before and after as well as the completed outfits. I will have to say, it was a “reel” pleasure to work on this project. One I will always remember. Thanks for allowing me to post this little story.

I chuckle that you mention that. I noticed it the first time I saw the rod. The rod maker glued it on with an apoxy. Came out to check it later, saw what he had done and went back inside and poured a drink.

As for the type of wood on the bottom stick, just don’t know for sure. When I first saw it, it was grey and falling apart!

The one is a Bimini King, Tycoon Rod. It is the one with the 16/0 on it done in red and black. The other?

The Tycoon looked like a bamboo quad to me, but it's difficult to tell in photos.

Wouldn't actually do it, but my evil side is thinking "Oh and I went ahead and put the part numbers on the reels for you."
