Logan S Posted February 2 Share Posted February 2 Anyone want to get in on a 'your latest build' thread? If not it'll die out with just me I guess . I actually have a couple since I finished my first rod earlier in the fall. I knew I made a mistake starting out with a 'nice' rod for my first build so I decided to build rods for my kids as a way to practice. Both are CRB Color Series 5'6" and I outfitted them with a basic CRB guide kit and EVA handles with matching shrink wrap. I let the kids pick out their colors and then used my wife's Cricut machine to make name labels for each of them. They look pretty good from far away, but are far from good up close . Was a good learning experience and they will fish just fine, the kids are excited either way. Learned a few more lessons with these builds...Most importantly that I was using way too much finish on the guides at first, by the time I finished the 2nd one I was getting much better at it. After these, I got back into making my own rods...To be continued... 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
