--------------------------------------------------------------

feels very stiff.. doing an ultra quick build split grip - going to put min. time in on this with min work..because if this one breaks...I am done with ST croix Blanks..Still have yet to fish any I put time into due to breaking 8" from the tip -- 3 in a row..yike.. all light rods - I feel like this still rod is solid..only saw a blemish in the finish near the butt/ middle.. came witha clean cut off end already as well..

couldnt locate any of my stands or drying motor?..odd - so I built 4 quick stands @ lunch in 20min.. slim profile.

already got the handle reamed and seat placement sorted out -- rear butt glued...

2 hrs - handle cork fitting 2-1-13
20 min to Glue all components. 2-2-13
