SUPER Fondue BOWL ~ 3S70MF ~$1 store EVA ~ 2-3-13

A year ago today I went to the sports man show and found the 2 Rogue blanks which started the rod building..
7 Rods built:
4 good:
Rogue 6-12
Rogue 10-20
Kevins rod CRB 6-12?
Cheap 8-17 non name $18
3 Bad:
St Croix - 5S68MXF - Fact 2nd - shatter BREAK
St Croix - 3s70MF - Fact 2nd - Break
St Croix - 5S70MF-B-10 - New $120 - BREAK
-----> (Jan 2012: replaced under warr $30 with a new 5S70MF-B)

So now I am building on 2 more Fact 2nd St coix ( foolish?)
I think the 5s70MHF will be ok
but the 3s70MF might just break again like the others..
so both are on the fast track built..After checking all of the 7 St Coix 2nd blanks I have in inventory - the only one that seemed to be straight and free of blemishs or waves was this one...so if this works out - i'll build on the $120( now $150) SCV new Blank...if it breaks..Ebay..
I think I going to ebay the rest as well..

this AVid blank is getting left over components.. even the seat is a cheap $4-$5 small Mudhole size 16? cork seat - very similar to the one they us on OEM rod- just fits the blank and the 3000FJ.. left over cork handles needed tape backing to fit in 2 sections..plus went to the $1 store and picked up some EVA foam toys/ crafts parts for accents..1/2 the foam seems like it will work..this rod will be the test model..looks like it will work.

Also put the 33rpm motr n Stand together as well. Still cant find the other stands + 18rpm motor..???
