The butt section of the rod on the left has a holo-wrap. Basically, it's a white black base, with four coats of epoxy, then a reverse wrapped double thread of metallic green & white. The white is called a 'slave' that after the wrap gets removed causing a holographic effect.

Lotsa work but very cool if you're trying to add a little weight to the butt for balance

If you look at the guides closely, you'll see that an imaginary line from the shaft for the spool of the reel goes right through the guides until it intersects the blank. Then after that are small micro guides that shoot the line off the blank. This is called a concept spinning set of guides.

Theory is longer casts. The topic's debated heavily among those in the know. I think it does add distance to the cast, but what do I know. lol

Good job and some nice fish catchers. It will be fun for you catching the critters on your own rods.

Thx everyone.

Been building now for almost 10 years as a hobby. Makes great gifts to friends & family.

Nothing like catching a fish on a rod & bait I built.
