14' Snapper Rod Finished.


Recommended Posts

Finally finshed the last of 3 project I have been working on, a 14' snapper rod for chasing big red from the stones. The rod has come up a treat. Really happy with the finish and look, and will be even happier to get such a long rod out of my 2 bedroom unit. Blank is a pacific composites SU 7153 100-150gm cast weight. All components are ALPS in chrome and or cobalt blue. Grips are cord under with X patterned heat shrink over. Grip setup is to suit an overhead reel. Madeira thread, (3 colours of blue) with metallic silver and cobalt blue trim bands to tie in with the guides.

Should be good with a nice big snapper pulling on the other end. You may even see it in the pages of Fishing Monthly NSW some time :thumbup: .
