... almost has my new jig pole ready. Built on a 7 ft St Croix SCV Extreme blank with split grip, split reel seat, and Fuji K series guides. A little more thread work to finish and some epoxy and she will be ready to go...

Split grip

Thread work on the guides

And some marbling work.

Between the grips.

And butt wrap


Thanks for looking...

I have 5 St Croix rods that have lasted 10 years so far. Good rods.

Hey guys and gal thank you for the comments and I know Robert appreciates it to.

Bobby, this is my third. I used to buy only All Star until they went off shore, now its St Croix for me too.

Roger save your coins, they are worth it.

Anthony, here is a link to wtex's web sight, he will be glad to answer any questions you might have. The Rod builders guild usually meets in the metroplex in the winter. Be a good place to meet some of the best, and they don't mind sharing their knowledge...
