This is the latest rod to come off my bench. It's another Payne 100 in a 2/2 configuration that I built as a gift for my trusty fishing buddy Seth. I'm really looking forward to handing this rod over to him and be there as he fishes it for the first time. Hopefully I'll have a bamboo buddy after that.

Thanks for looking,

Very, very nice color combo with the seat, wraps and blank. Ties everything together perfectly thumbsup.gif He should be doing back flips when he gets that rod.
If I ever build the perfect rod, I'll retire.

Great looking rod. Very well done. Like the wraps at the winding check.

Jacob, congratulations for the fine work! Your rod looks nicer than the original Payne!! What did you use to blue the ferrules? I really like this grey/black colour..

Guys, thank you!! You sure know how to make a fella happy. smile.gif I will go up to the Catskills on Sunday to deliver the rod and will hopefully have time to swing some cane before heading back to the city.

Stefano, the ferrules are blued with OXPHO Gun Blue made by Brownells. It's very easy to work with although not super durable unless you clear coat. I leave it as is and like how it wears over time and create a more 'vintage" look. It's easy to just re-apply if you wish too.
