Dont get crazy with the color wrappings, I prefer them to be on the dark side.

This will effect the price offered in three years.

I can honestly say I have never sold one of my customs..That I wrapped or purchased.

But just in case we will be using dark gray or black underwrap and a deeeeeep red over. Deeper than the red letters there but, just wanted to give you the idea...
Hope you approve......

As of now this has moved to a winter project this year, too much work around the house the Mrs is pushing me on. I think its time to sell this 5 bedroom house just the 2 of us live in..

Joe, what did Mudhole charge you for shipping? ShippedUPS ? Curious because oversized adds up real fast. Enjoy building it, Joe.

Joe, since project pushed back a bit, will not order until early fall.
Mudhole shipping charges on one piece rods up to 11 foot, mine will be 9'11'' is cheep, Now, this is uncommon but I hear Mudhole has a contract with their shipper, which I think is Fedex but not sure, and are able to offer low shipping on blanks.

Below are the charges look at the jump after 11' 6".

Blanks 72" - 108" (6' - 9') *$9.50

Rod Blanks 109" - 138" (9'1" - 11'6") *$19.50

Rod Blanks ≥ 139" (11'7") *$150.00
