Baitcasting Rod for Heavy cover fishing 7' 12-25lb

Planned almost 4 months ago, a standard heavy cover bait casting rod and additional design added along the way.

Simple components. Fuji TCS reel seat custom painted gloss black, fuji rubber gimbal, aluminium extended and custom shaped CAMO EVA split handle.

Used CRB 12-25lb 7' blank for this rod.

Test fitting handle before gluing up.

Black fuji guides with duo tone metallic wrapping.

Rod decal after epoxy.
