EPIC 686 Slate - Purple Wraps



This is a very special build, and the request for purple wraps was trying enough that I sent the blank with about ten test wraps and a dozen or so different mixes of finish to achieve the final color, fingers crossed that the six coats of finish required will allow the purple silk to shine!

The Natural 8'3" 3wt wrapped



I finished wrapping this rod yesterday. All these colors should blend together well and the final rod should be spectacular..... I hope.
