    I finally had the time to finish this build. Naturally the GR is in full mud so it might be a few until I can get out and brake it in. With this build I used a copper colors for the marbling and I placed a magnet in the lower grip as a hook keep to help out from hole to hole.

    Grip: Rubberized lower and burl, dark burl & rubberized upper grip

    Great rod. I hate putting epoxy over a large area without wraps, yours looks great. And the marbling is not over-the-top, the subtle colors look classy.
    Well done.
