Light JIGGING rod - CUSTOM Blank

I sold my light jigging rod last year and I guess it's time to build one for my upcoming trip mid of this month.

Trying to use light components to compensate the weight of the blank which is quite heavy due to its' thick blank wall. 

Carbon composite handles

I am leaving the carbon fiber as it is  and not applying any epoxy onto it. Hope this will give me a better grip.

Early set up of the handle.

I am using SG Titanium RSOL guides for this rod which again, I want it to be as light as possible. 

Completed the handle and guides

Overall view of the rod

I would say it's pretty much balanced up.

Tried my best and it still weighs at 141 grams.
