retro rod
« on: November 07, 2010, 03:05:06 PM »

i've had this rod for 20yrs+ it's a berkley series one blank. i kept the fighting butt and used the orginal for grip rof the new rear grip. the origanal guides and reel seat were cut off and trashed the guides were fixed a few tines as well as the reel seat. the reel seat was cracked so bad i'm sure it would explode soon so the rod was shelved until last week, when the blank was sanded and fitted with a new forcast reel seat and a new set of micro guides and what a better reel to set it off with the new reborn lews speed spool.

It looks comfortable.  I have to modify some of my rods, but I am a little gun shy to start breaking them down.

Very nice
Original song and lyrics by "MadWags"

What's with the news these days on the TV and the radio. Can't find the truth amongst the lies. Some talking head that claims to live their life in a better way, says I have to compromise. But now there's something on the rise. Truth has opened up my eyes. There's no running from your dirty lies. You can't avoid the truth. I'll no longer close my eyes.
