So we've decided on a 4wt Perfectionist 2pc rod, in a light blonde color:

With a beautiful light box elder burl reel seat from Bellinger:

I voted for clear with red tipping. Just as with my Moto guzzi motorcycle (1983) i just bought, i like to see as much as possible from the technique used. Don't like todays Guzzis where you don't see the engine anymore.

I think the medium brown with yellow/gold tipping would match really well with the reel seat insert!

Hey...I knew it too and I almost voted for that one, except I'm a little biased towards the green and gold...




....unfortunately the sample green and gold tipping won't be ready till next week...so far 3 coats of varnish. biggrin.gif

OK guys, I'm going to wrap this one up at 9pm EST today so I can get the next poll up. I'll be wrapping the rod later this week and we still have to decide on the stripping guide. thumbsup.gif

Well, to my surprise, clear with red tipping has the most votes!

I'll get the stripping guide poll up later today as I get time.
