REEL TECH CUSTOM – Cork Split Grip Salmon Rod

Custom just completed and will be delivered soon. This is the second Reel Tech Custom for Amy Sandlin. She wanted to match the thread wraps of the steelhead rod I made her, finished with some custom marbling. The rod turned out fantastic, and based on the responses to the work in process photos I sent to Amy, she is in love, and cant wait to put this rod into action. Enjoy your new toy Amy, and thank you as always for choosing The Reel Tech.

REEL TECH CUSTOM – 6′ Spinning Rod

A customer contacted me to say that her 20 yr old custom rod gave up the ghost. She was interested in getting another one built. She brought the rod to the shop and said she really liked her old one and wanted to keep as much the same as possible. She was into a bit of modernization as far as the components go, and with that, I went to building. She was very pleased with the results and this rod is in use already!
