Archangel 611M casting rod action.
Can we see the entire rod not just the tip bending? With closeups of the details and such.

I can take some close ups this weekend.

I don't need to see the action to know I can't afford it. Not now anyway. I'll have to wait until they pop up on ebay.

Dude...you get a KP citation for using your reel as a hook keeper. I know it's your reel..it's just painful to see.

Good looking rod!
Action looks good too.
That 8ft rod might make an awesome deep crank rod :-k

Just my opinion, but I think gun metal winding checks and trim rings would have made it pop better. Never really cared for gold. Aside from that it's very pleasing to the eye.

Is it just me or does the cork look pretty bad at the reel seat?? At 650 I would expect better.
