Batson XST Float Rod, CYAG Guide Set, Spruced up sliding ring reelseat, Lime Green Metallic / silver trim, blah blah blah.  Quickest turn around on a float rod build in my career of building.  (Granted, I know I can't compete with SD and his 24 hour rod builds, but I'm going to brag anyway!)  Start to finish and ready for shipping in less than a week.  Had to meet a deadline including shipping that was so tight, client agreed to put the factory decal on himself!  LOL!  Yeah, it was that fast...almost like Jimmy John's delivery!

Incredible work, as always. What amazes me the most is you NEVER seem to run out of new ideas. Thanks for sharing with us!

Thanks for the kind words Jay!  My wife and I were just talking about this.  What happens when I can't come up with any new grip formats or guide wrap motifs?  CLOSE THE DOORS!  No soup for you!

 

LOL!

 

I pray that God keeps the ideas coming because I've promised previous clients that I won't duplicate grip designs (ooops, might want to time machine back on that one!?)

Awesome work! Any secret to getting your epoxy on so uniform and perfectly smooth every time? The epoxy is what kills me and I always seem to not 100% like one part or another of my epoxy when I'm finished. Seems to be the hardest thing for me right now, that darn epoxy! ha

Actually Dom made a topic on this very subject a while back. I'm sure he had a *lot* of requests for this.

You can find the thread over on the "Pinned Topics and Basic How-To's" section of the board.

Lots of good information in that section.
