Tackle The Storm Rod Build

Recommended Posts

After emailing Brian a few times and talking to him last week we have come up with a design.

He had been planning what he calls the "perfect spinnerbait rod" for several years and now I'm going to build it for him.

 

Blank; Mudhole HM-SB812-MHX
 
Reel Seat; Fuji SK2 Split Grip Reel Seat, Black with Black Aluminum Hood with Silver Accents
 
Handle; SK2 Rear Grip RGSK 1617
              SK2 Fighting Butt BGK485E
              No Foregrip
 
Guide Train; Spiral Wrap, Fuji Micro Guide
                     Stripping Guide; 5mm KR Concept Alconite
                     Transition Guide; 4.5 mm KR Concept Alconite
                     Running Guides; 4mm KR Concept Alconite Belly Guides
                     Tip Top; 4.5mm FUJI SIC
 
Dimpled Aluminum Winding Checks Silver
 
Charcoal Grey Prowrap with Bright Silver Trim Wrap
 
If he does not like it, great I will keep it for myself and build him another one.  This is going to be a BAD A ROD!
 
Here we go.

That's sounds like one sweet rod. Really digging the black and silver theme. I'm excited too see this take shape.

He's talking about a few different sick reels to go with it.  Maybe an Abu Morrum 1600.

Ordered the Morrum ZX1600, just don't know when it will get here. Really looking forward to this, and I don't get to excited about many things. Brian.

just pulled the tape.  I have a little clean up to do but I stuck a Pro Max on it to see how it looks.

The first coat of finish on the charcoal on graphite wrap.

Finish is the hardest step of the whole process and micro guides don't make it any easier. If I can offer a suggestion, you can use the edge of a sheet of paper to wick the excess off around the tunnels in front of the guide. That's a nice build for a good cause.

Thanks for the tip.  I used a dry brush to get it after the pic but a sheet of paper would have been easier.

 

How busy are you?  I've got some reels I want to send you to clean and tune.

It's seasonally busy. Turn around is about 4 weeks as of today. I see fr your location you have open water so I'll rush whatever you send. Thanks.
