    It's been a while sense I posted up a rod so go easy on me. This is a 9' 7wt black american tackle Matrix blank. I took some pictures from start to finish. Hope you like it.

    Thanks guys, I just shipped the rod out today to a guy in Toronto Canada. He does a lot of streamer fishing for larger trout, 5-8 pound...... I should have traded for a trip....
