Ijuin YOMOGI 7033 - #430



I finished up another Yomogi build this week. This one came out very nice with a stacked Tonkin cane reel seat insert, blued hardware and green wraps tipped black. I have just a couple more Yomogi blanks in stock.

EPIC 686 Black - #429


How do you make an EPIC'ly bad ass rod even more bad ass? Make it black!




Here is a the first of three custom color EPIC builds I'm am working on this is the 686, I also have the 888 and 990 in black. I wrapped the rod in blue thread then tipped in blue with a single turn of white at the cork check and ferrules. The hardware is blue/gray anodized and I had the custom rod tube hardware anodized the same color. The grip is a flor grade full wells, and a small fighting butt adds to the look and gives a bit of balance.
