The two Bureau seats and the Bellinger 660 have a smaller OD at about .660" and the Bellinger 720s are larger at about .720". Also note that all the seats are downlocking and the bottom one has more vivid quilting/stripes than is shown in the picture.

Went with the Maple burl because we're sticking with a lightly flamed rod....

I'd like to see the Maple mounted in the Bureau hardware wub.gif



Orvis ROCKS!

These polls are a blast! Thanks for posting them.

All those seats are great but I went with the 720 - the 8013 is pretty 'beefy' rod and I think it would look good with the larger profile seat.

Voted for the 660 Maple Burl to go with the colour of the cane. An 8 foot rod is where I like a screw lock reelseat so it felt pretty natural to me.

This is gonna be so interesting to see this babe being made! thumbup.gif

I had to go with the Bureau Black Ash Burl, really like the markings of the wood.

This is going to be one beautiful rod!

I think this poll has run its course, and the Bureau Black Ash Burl is the overall winner with 14 votes.

I'll get the next poll up shortly, and will also have a bit of a surprise regarding the reel seat come next week, so stay tuned... kicking.gif
