They all look good! Keep up the excellent work. There are a few rod builders on here and a handful of us that fish custom rods.

Good stuff! Inspires me to try rod building myself! If you can, snap some pictures with fish.

Would you please provide details on your spiral wrap method of guide placement?

Where is your stripper guide? I can not tell from the image in relation to the reel.

How much of the rod blank do you use for the 180 degree wrap?

Where do you start your 180's on the underside?

Which side of the rod do you spiral around and why?

I have been building spiral wrapped rods for about 25 years now and it has been an interesting learning experience for me so I am curious about your methodology!

I practically live in MudHole! I go there 3 times a month usually since it is only 15 minutes from my front door...
