So Capt Neil and I have been busy designing, redesigning and re-redesigning the layout of my new CTS BS702. He finished up the grips and seat part of the job today.

Watcha think so far?

I saw this rod in person, it is awsome, and unique. I love the way the foregrip feels in hand. I cant wait to pull on it when its complete. Nice design and nice feel. All the best with it Pete.

Looks really nice

Can't wait to see the finished product. After your done with this rod for Pete you need to kick him out if your house so the rest of us can get our rods built!

Pete, your wife just called, she said NO MORE CUSTOM RODS FOR YOU,

Thanks guys! Its been a journey since we first sat down over burgers and brews to discuss this new build, that's for sure.

Nothing pretty just "happens." Lots of investigative work, looking at tons of builds all over the Net and in person. Relentless scanning of product catalogs and websites. Talking with vendors, thinking about coordinating materials and colors - it can and should come together in a special way when the design and process "guys" function as a team, are "on the same page," as it were.

While Neil has been wracking his head and eyesight on the rod, I've been busy on my own workbench, building a very special Abu "4600C10" for it from dead scratch, choosing the exact reel components I want. And especially nice will be the very custom 95mm silver carbon fiber handle from one of my good friends in Singapore, along with a rod grip-matching pair of black oversized EVA grips. Special stuff for a special setup.

The CF material used in the reel's handle and also as part of the rod grips is actually called "Texalium" - which is raw carbon fiber cloth dusted or "infused" with aluminum micro-particles, prior to becoming part of the tube's (or reel handle's) layup schedule. . . Nice stuff, but very expensive to purchase.

This rod features two different diameters of the Texalium tubing - just because two sizes are available. (What, ya think I'm one to scrimp on such a unique build? LOL!) The fore and rear grips utilize the smaller 0.908" tubing, while the one right behind the reel seat is the larger 1.08" size. Doesn't sound much different, but trust me, its much nicer to grip the 1.08 stock and so that's what we went with.

So we (Neil and I) have also been discussing some interesting thread work - including the so-called "Dragon Scale" pattern between the rear handles, and a tasteful butt wrap up above the foregrip. I'm not one for the ultra-intricate weaves, but do very much prefer a coordinated color selection for the threads. So it'll be brite silver and black, with metallic copper trim, which should all pull together nicely with the tangerine-flavored, errr, I mean colored, blank.

Did I mention that we're also going with a set of the new 4-legged American Tackle "Ring-Lock" pure titanium-framed Nanolite guides? Never gonna be any rust forming under MY guide wraps. Not on this stick, anyways.

By the way, take another look at the picture of Capt. Neil holding the finished grips. Have any of you ever seen that particular look on the usually happy and care-free Capt's face? Thought not.

I'll take the hit for that. Its all my fault. I probably put a few extra miles on the good Capt's well-spun odometer with this new build, that's fo' sho'! Shades

Pete, your wife just called, she said NO MORE CUSTOM RODS FOR YOU,




Haah, please reveal your TRUE motive for getting me out of Neil's shop. Could it be the two rare blanks that I found for you, deep in his inner sanctum? BWAAAAHAAAHAAA! Nobody spends another's money like I can. NOOO-BAA-DY! Shades

Oh, and my rods just called, they said NO MORE WIFE FOR ME!

Now which call do you think is the one I'll pay most attention to? surprise
