I've built that lighter SWB earlier and now wanted to build this tougher one. It's definitely BADASS blank! Can cast easily 200-250g lures. It's much stiffer than 5oz version (807), but same weight.
Was little difficult to build, cause butt is over 22mm thick. There isn't much room for grip material. Also there restrictions about reelseat that fits in.. Have to be at least 18mm ID, if handle is less than 45cm.
Colour theme was 'accident', cause i ordered 'blue' EVA, but it wasnt electric blue as i wanted.. So i made it marine blue with silver thread tiger. Spiral wrapped new American Tackle snagless Tornado guides. 12-10-10-10-8-8-8-8-8top.
Take a look!
