Buckeye burl Black stabilized

03 January 2016 - 04:26 PM

I try to stabilize buckeye burl wizh black clour several times, but the success was wery poor, I got all kind of shades, but never black or gray.

Now I got new color and I'm quite satisfied.

I need to make some more trials and maybe add more black colour in to the resin.

Here are first two









New rods for testing

29 December 2015 - 06:15 PM

I use time during Christmas holydays and I made Two rods for testing.

I bought blanks from Romania from BFC company. The blanks are not expencive and they are made in the same Korean factory as TFO is made.

Blanks look nice and I have very good feeling.


First one is 9'#2 medium action, this one will be for Dry fly fishing.

I use crom snake guides, invisiable wrap ( YLI thread)

Reel seat is from Sweden (Hilevel), grip is home made ;)









Second one is 12'#4

Single foot Tich guides from Pacbay. My reel seat skeleton with Bocote insert and home made grip.












Thank for watching.

I try this many times, but no success till today.

You need vry shap tools and a lot of patience.

You need to go realy slow.

This was first time to satabilze blanks and I think that helped.
