2Nd Rod Build - Mhx Mb843

Recommended Posts

I just finished my 2nd rod build. The next 7-8 rods I make will all be for my boat with matching colors. I have plans to make 5 baitcasters and 2 spinning all using MHX blanks. My next build will be a 6'6" MHX with Fuji micro "lowrider" stripper guides and will have a full eva/composite rear grip as opposed to split. I am going to try different grip and guide setups on all my rods. The cranking rod I am going to build is going to be on a MHX white blend blank and will be using American Tackle full titanium guides.

Man I'm liking what I see in the second pic!! The red and the silver metal just looks good together like that! Nice work Diablos.

Very nice work. Took me a lot more rods than two to get even close to that level of craftmanship.

I have built saltwater rods for almost 20 years but this was 2nd bass rod build ever. I've had people ask me for bass rods but since I didn't start bass fishing till 2007 I didn't want to build them for people without the knowledge of how they work. So I fished factory rods for a couple of years to understand what makes certain rods so specific.

I would like to build for people but I can not compete with warranties offered by factories. The thought of rebuilding a North Fork Composite after someone lifts a 3lb bass out of water doesn't sit well with me.

Was that the Hi-Mod blank? Did you have to "finish" the blank itself in any way?

Gorgeous Rod BTW!
